    I just did a fresh install of windows in EFI mode and exactly the same crash when installing the drivers so doesn't seem to be that causing the problem :(

    I didn't try the stock BIOS no, wouldn't that be the same as what the card had originally?
    Except the version number on my card seems to be a bit newer

    I want you to try those stock vBIOSes just to check the capability. If they would not work - it just means that your card needs another vBIOS mod.

    Yes, just try all of them to check the functionality.

    So strange, I tested all of them and none work! As soon as I put the original one back on Windows boots just fine.

    The version of the original bios end 045435

    I have uploaded it here

    Not sure if that is any help or not? :) I know this is a finished project for you :(

    Thnx for sharing vBIOS. Can you also post GPU-Z screenshot? It's kinda interesting what is the reason...

    P.S. I've done the mod for test based on your vBIOS - you can find it in "FirePro M6100 (Dell M6800) VER015.035.000.003.045435" folder

    Fantastic the modded bios you did works! Booted straight into Windows. I ran the Cloud gate test and there is an uplift in performance and gpuz/afterburner confirm the new clock speeds. Also the TDP slider (as well as clock speeds) in afterburner are now unlocked. Now I really need to perfect the heat sink installation as the fans are noticeably louder!

    Thank you so much!

    In preparing to refit the cooler there is one thing I wondered. The card had thermal pads on the rear memory modules. I left them on the card but it did confuse me somewhat, as there is nothing for them to actually transfer the heat to. I wonder if they are reducing the contact pressure with the GPU die? I know it's a long time back but do you recall if you fitted thermal pads to the back of your M6100?

    Seems like the revision is a bit different from what I saw in the past. Nice to hear that mod works well :) And thank you for sharing the vBIOS - the mod based on it will help people like you in future ;)
