    New rev 14/15 BIOS out as of 3/20. The revision numbers jumped to bios 2.14/15 for some reason, but the notes indicate minor fixes (or do they? the clevo site is, as usual, chock full of info ;)). I think there's a 'soft fan' mode now as well (although I haven't found fan control if that was an intended feature).

    I could do without all the beeping during the updates, an my Sager logo is gone upon boot (and is Style Note... aw); any easy way to fix this? Other than 'get Sager to reflash your notebook.' Minor, but disappointing.

    Thanks for the great guide - it makes flashing look daunting but in actually it's just "update them in order, and follow whatever random command clevo picked for each BIOS update" (it would be nice if they stuck with a pattern).

    No wonder if you flashed a BIOS straight from Clevo and not from Sager ;) There should be guide to modifying the BIOS logo. Link, anyone?

    Yeah, I did :( Sager doesn't have download links for BIOS at all.

    I know this is minor, but I had fun with people wandering up to my booting notebook asking what Sager was and/or what kind of cheap off brand notebook was I using. I don't even know what Style Note is! I would have been happy with Clevo ;) Hehe.

    If there was an easy way to modify the boot-screen logo, I'd probably end up putting something silly on it for kicks (like, Tandy 2000 booting up! Please wait, an Apple logo, or pretend to be a Dell/Alienware and get people to ask where they could buy one, etc).
