    Add to the first post:

    - download bios 14 (labeled as 214 now, up to revision2.14 instead of 1.13, etc)
    - download bios 15

    extract both, stick it on the USB key prepped like before

    bios14:
    - navigate to bios14 folder, update
    reboot
    - navigate to bios15 folder, step 1
    step2
    reboot

    Is what I did. Enjoy the beeping ;)

    Isn't it supposed to be just step1 and step2? At least that's what I did in my case, and everything worked out. Is the "update" command still necessary?

    Well, there isn't even any"update" command in the zip folder I've downloaded from Clevo's website anyway :)

    sorry about that, I overlooked where the "update" command was, it's in the 2.14 BIOS, lol. I was updating to the 2.15 BIOS. Thanks anyway :)

    Yeah, just look at what files you extract. It sort of seems random as to what Clevo prefers :p I just did whatever the appropriate .bat was in each update folder, and if it has an ECFlash update, so that first (usually that's step1). Randon monkeys are making the BIOS update files at Clevo it seems ;)

    Thanks for the guide, I'm now on BIOS 1.02.15 / EC 1.00.12, my usb-keyboard had stopped working with BIOS13 but it is now working, can't tell about hissing noise because it's like ambient noise I can't really tell when it hiss or not.

    And by the way the beeping noise is a speaker noise not a system noise so you can plug speaker and mute them to avoid getting deaf or being hit by your roommate for being so noisy

    I lied my usb keyboard (apple aluminum keyboard) worked during an hour or two but then it stopped working completely. So Ive had the brilliant idea to uninstall apple driver and now I'm unable to to install it back. Also the hissing is back stronger than ever

    For the keyboard, should I downgrade the bios or ec or both?

    My BIOS version is 1.01.13, while my KBC/EC Firmware is 1.00.06. I would like to update to BIOS .15.

    Should I just flash the BIOS to .08 and the KBC/EC Firmware .08, before flashing to KBC/EC .10 and BIOS .12, and then update to BIOS .13 and BIOS .14?

    Or is there an easier or safer method?
