[REQUEST] Acer Aspire VN7-592G BIOS Unlock
#81
(04-26-2017, 03:08 AM)h0dgep0dge Wrote: I've recently upgraded from a 10 year-old POS to a gorgeous shiny Acer VN7-593G. I'm thoroughly satisfied, in virtually all respects except one, the woefully under-featured BIOS configuration utility.

The first paydirt I hit was a post from 2015 from a person by the name of vodek, which outlined a process for enabling some more advanced menu options. Unfortunately Acer has not released a BIOS update for my machine, so I started by downloading a BIOS update for the VN7-592G, and followed all directions with that in order to make sure I understood and was able to follow all directions, and everything went fine. I've also verified that I'm able to boot my machine into the Insyde EFI shell.

Given that Acer isn't currently providing a bios image for me to work with, I investigating extracting something directly from the computer itself. I successfully pulled out something using the "Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit" (A copy of this image can be found here) and following the instructions from the instructions linked above went pretty well until step number 6, I was unable to find either "Intel Page" or "i-Page" in the extracted text file (A copy of which can be found here).

Without the correct address for the variable I'm unable to set the value to enable the advanced menu, if anyone else has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

@h0dgep0dge hi i have successfully extracted the rom or the part with the i-page from the vn7-592G i just dont h
know how to recompile it all the instructions from vodek were pretty slim towards the end are you still looking for the advanced option?
I have a VN7-592G and would like to get to the advanced option also.

Hi
1. missing "Intel Page" or "i-Page"
2. Your bios chip is rewrite protected
Bios mod can be flashed using SPI-programmer+SOIC8 clip only

Backup tool also looks good: https://i.sli.mg/qJx9JT.png

Some of the settings look interesting, others I have no idea what they do, and some don't apply to my motherboard :p (there's mention of NFC and wireless charging) But overall, there's plenty of useful settings unlocked now which I can make use of for testing out some stuff in Linux, and even for playing around with a Hackintosh setup. The audio configuration page is really interesting; can choose what audio features to enable and disable (DTS, Dolby, etc), and can even choose to use a generic audio setup instead of Intel's Smart Sound.

Thanks again for your time and the mod! I really appreciate it Smile

Is it possible to provide the modded BIOS? Please also share information if this can be flashed the normal way without an external programmer. Thanks.

Hi!
The issue is: I can't make my NVMe SSD (Samsung mzvpv256hdgl) bootable. I tried to unlock BIOS, but got an error below.
Could you please unlock my BIOS and give me the cue what options should I change so that I can boot from this SSD?
