[REQUEST] Toshiba Satellite C655D BIOS unlock
#61
Greetings, Just signed up.
Wanted to say I have the same interest for my C655D-5300 as well.

Ditched windows and running The ubuntu mate Linux version as Host.

Works great after I disabled the PCI network port in BIOS and reinstalled.

I updated BIOS to 1.8 to see if it fixed the PCI ethernet for linux which it did not.
Also checked kernal modules etc.

So I am running ubuntu without  the Atheros adapter enabled in BIOS.
(Could also be bios related)

WIFI works great.

Just a tip if you want to run Ubuntu on this laptop.

I successfully installed the VMWARE package and the Windows VMDK works with
binary translation. However other VMDKS (Mac osx)  etc error out needing AMD-v enabled in bios.

Virtual Box does not work says need amd v  enabled.

So here is the flag info of cpu

root@catalyst-lightwave:/home/steve# egrep svm /proc/cpuinfo
flags        : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 ht syscall nx mmxext fxsr_opt pdpe1gb rdtscp lm constant_tsc rep_good nopl nonstop_tsc extd_apicid aperfmperf pni monitor ssse3 cx16 popcnt lahf_lm cmp_legacy svm extapic cr8_legacy abm sse4a misalignsse 3dnowprefetch ibs skinit wdt arat hw_pstate npt lbrv svm_lock nrip_save pausefilter vmmcall

Do not know if useful for you but SVM is there.

Anyway

Will follow along to see if I can help.

Thanks!

OK cool. I still have Windows installed upgraded it to 10. I don't use it for anything to crazy mostly you tube and some light gaming so it works well for me. Wish I had a better computer but oh well.

Thanks. When I try and flash the BIOS it says version is the same as rom. I don't know what you mean by find the variable if you mean for virtualization I can't find it either.

Go into Bios Mod folder and edit file Platform.ini modifing Flag=1 to Flasg=0 then save and retry !

[Bios_Version_Check]
Flag=1 ******************* to Flag=0 ***********************
;This flag is the switch of checking BIOS version.
;Flag default : 2.
; 0 : Don't check rom file version.
; 1 : Check BIOS version.
; When rom file version is older then BIOS, it will display
; a warning message and close application.
; 2 : Depend on BIOS report.

Let me know
Regards

P.S. Into the Setuputility EFI IFR file I cannot find VT-d or VT-x so look by yourself as It seems there isn't this possibility !

@BDmaster, Thanks!

Regarding virtualization there has been a plan on the table for some time to deploy Virtualized desktops via
a key system. (In the Ed Snowden arena.) See business plan here. http://www.catalystlightwave.com.

Not being a programmer with linux installed I am assuming to download file open it with correct
editor find variable change to "True" and save correctly, that kind of thing?
However if line does not exist adding it could brick device.
So not worth the risk?


@ cookie this previous thread went through the same issues for a similiar C655d

https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-t...655D-S5200

with no luck. It Includes file that will downgrade your BIos to 1.4.
However I think he meant to download open and look for variable, not install.
(Am I correct BDMASTER)
Went bankrupt doing the Catalyst Lightwave thing so cannot afford new hardware either.

However very Happy running Ubuntu as host with VMWARE windows 7 when I need windows.

Thanks again BDMASTER!
