    Be sure to check all options as most of them are connected.
    My Tb3 port aka USBC is next to useless on my AW.

    dont you think we should also try to unlock our bios, do you want to try first ? or wait for the newbios then submit the dump file ?

    I'm no longer motivated for fixing AW because I'll be buying Ryzen A seies or whatever.
    There no easy way to bypass boot guard tech!

    Aptio 4 has only partial boot guard and its not enforced. But in ours (Aptio V) boot guard is forced no matter what.

    ive already checked with him with all kinds of dump, intitially he told he its not possible, because

    "Boot guard is active on this system, so you cannot edit that region of the BIOS that's needed to unlock BIOS [​IMG]
    Sorry, nothing can be done about this unless you replace your PCH that does not have key burned into the FPF fuses
    Any attempt at a single byte change will = brick, so good thing we checked!"

    but he asked me to give others dump files of ME/EC/GBU.. EC is not avail, me is not readable inside windows dos, so he suggested to make USB bootable dos, and try from there, and best thing he said i can flash using rom hardware flasher which comes around 10 dollars, i might probably get one.. lets see.. so far skylake systems are not that easy, he told me..

    Yeah I knew that and that's the reason I was demotivated. I do have a 16.8MB SPI dump with 1.3.12 with old MEIFW.
