the flashing of the modded BIOS might not work because the recovery checks the signature of the BIOS file.

However, you might be able to enable AMD-V using this method (needs to be adapted): http://www.geektech.co.nz/how-to-unlock-...enovo-y700
This method requires Windows as a system as the necessary tool is only available for Windows.

First, you will need the tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...RtQXM/view
Extract the archive and go to the folder with the extracted files.
Then, you need to open an administrative command prompt in that folder (google it if you don't know how).
Execute the command from step 1 of the linked guide in that command prompt (H2OUVE.exe -gv vars.txt).
After that, you'll have the file "vars.txt" in that folder.
You need to upload this file, so that I can make the change.

For reference, here's the EFI-table with available settings for this notebook: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4NHIB...WI4LW14bE0
And here's the setting that needs to be changed:
0x1C40B             Setting: SVM support, Variable: 0xEE {05 91 54 02 55 02 54 00 34 12 EE 00 00 10 00 01 00}
0x1C41C                 Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 (default) {09 07 27 00 10 00 00}
0x1C423                 Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 07 28 00 00 00 01}
Thanks for the service. It is awesome man. Here is my vars.txt in the attachment for acer aspire e5-553-t4pt. Could you do this as well? Thank you in advanace.

It would be helpful if you could post the instructions more clearly so that we can try to understand which thread to edit.
Hey. By looking at the modifications you did to the bios of others, I too tried to change my E0 last but one bit to 01 and 140 last but two bit to 00. But somehow, it did not work. Is there something I did wrong Huh Look at my output message. Got a few erros. Which one is the setup one?

Hi,
these errors are normal, the changes should have been applied nevertheless.
In the vars.txt file you uploaded setup had the index 041, which has "Set failed!" here.
To be sure that your changes have been applied, just create another vars-file (H2OUVE.exe -gv vars2.txt) and check, if your changes are there.

In case you want to compare, I've created a modded vars file for you, too: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...dQb00/view

Regarding the instructions, I'll see what I can do to make things easier comprehensible.

Ok, here you go: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...BfeDQ/view

You need to put the vars_mod_dragondada.txt file in the folder with the H2OUVE.exe file and execute the following command in an administrative command prompt in that folder:
H2OUVE.exe -sv vars_mod_dragondada.txt
H2OUVE will update the NVRAM area of the BIOS and after a reboot the new setting should be active.

Is everything there under the setup block in the vars file?

Applied, confirmed amd-v is now enabled! Fantastic, now I've got the laptop I thought acer sold me....thanks mclarke2355 and Dudu2002

I'm glad that it worked properly!

Yes, all the current settings are saved in the setup block of the vars file. It's the only block that we need to change.
The variable tells you at which position the setting is saved (e.g. SVM Support has the variable 0xEE, so its setting is located at position EE (Hexadecimal) in the setup block).
So, if you want to change something else, you just need to look up its variable in the EFI-table and then change the according value in the setup block of the vars file to the desired one.

hello, please help me unlocked bios for AMD V, I wiil really be appreciate.
 i have same type of acer E5-553g-12C6
and here is my vars.

Hey all,

Long time weren't here.

Here is my vars file. I also have an olde zaba file, that was submitted to m for unlocking the bios (but i never got an spi prgrammer here in TH)

I would like to get everything what is possible....
advanced tab would be so great but would be happy already if i get virtualization.

i will look inside by myself, but would be nice to get help. can you check for the necessary mods inside?

thanks in adavance
