    Ok, maybe someone need.
    I did it for myself to be able to install the nVidia driver without modifying nvdmi.inf

    As a bonus, I added the modified vBios GTX980M and GTX970M

    One of the forum users asked me is possible to make a bios for GTX 10xx cards, it is be possible.
    Can some test who has the GTX 10xx card?

    As if someone was interested in the unlocked Bios A14 (VAS10A14) for Alienware 18.
    Curiosity, this bios also works on 17 R1 (R5), but you do flash at your own risk.

    So i keep getting the error:

    Flashing BIOS region backup
    "fptw.exe"is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file
    "prr.exe"is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file
    Flashing BIOS region backup
    "fptw.exe"is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file

    and the flash wont go through. Am i doing something wrong?

    EDIT: Yes i was, was doing the sleep bug improperly. Fixed it

    Does the A16 Bios that supports 10 series cards remove support for the 880m? Mine was working fine before i just flashed and now its listing as "microsoft basic display adapter"

    You have to flash the a14 via a sleep bug. unless there were a new way of flashing it.
