    The vBIOS mods here based on absolutely the same vBIOS as you provided:
    Code:
    vBIOS Mods\AMD\Mystery Magic\FirePro M6100 (Dell M6800) VER015.035.000.003.044934

    Hi, i'm trying to install FirePro W6170m/M6100 from HP Zbook G2 to my DELL M6600.
    Should I flash original BIOS from DELL or modded "Mystery Magic" or leave HP BIOS?
    Thank you.

    I've got M6100 from HP Zbook 17 G2 (it's called W6170M) and already installed it in my DELL Precision M6600.
    It came from china in very good condition with original HP bios. My M6600 started with this W6170M but picture was available only on external monitor connected through VGA cable. OK, that was enough to flash another original bios from DELL vga (from valuxin collection).
    W6170M card works with any DELL bios.... BUT - it works only in Linux. Windows has some errors, so I need HELP from anybody here ))
    Please HELP me!
    1. Linus works fine with any DELL bios and MM v.1 bios.
    2. Windows 7 - reboots after AMD display driver installation with BSOD (with all original DELL bios and MM v.1 except 015.035.000.003.045435).
    3. Windows 8.1 and 10 - crashes with BSOD by AMD display driver installation (with all original DELL bios and MM v.1 except 015.035.000.003.045435).
    In all cases GPU-Z (without installed AMD display driver) don't shows memory size (shows 0). With 015.035.000.003.045435 GPU-Z shows 2048 MB memory.
    In all cases W6170M card detected by GPU-Z like R9 m280X and it is not possible to install any FirePro M6100 driver manually.

    You will say - keep this bios 015.035.000.003.045435 and go with piece ))))
    But with this version 015.035.000.003.045435 my VGA card can not proper use VGA cooler. It passes built-in bios test and works fine only if i start HWINFO64 sensors.. In all other cases VGA cooler works by 2600 rpm and even if GPU over 85 deg it rotates same 2600 rpm.

    So.. please help me with this trouble!

    Do you have "AMD FirePro Advanced Settings" menu? If you do, it doesn't matter that it's recognized as R9-M280X, it would work as FirePro. Manual fan control is a known "feature" after GPU upgrade.

    no, i don't have any AMD driver settings at all (crimson v.16.12.1)..

    what do I need to control GPU fan manually?

    I can not install any FirePro M6100 display driver (even manually), only Crimson edition 16.12.1 for R9 m280X

    HWInfo should work, there's a fan icon when you switch to sensors.

    HWInfo fan control works only with RESPIN option (with minimal timeout 100).
    Maybe another software for GPU fan control?

    (MSI Afterbunber dosn't work with GPU fan)

    MM bios mod (v. for double-sided memory) for M6800 model - NO Crashes but Dislpay flickers.

    yes - this mod made from 015.035.000.003.045435 version.

    valuxin, did you try to fix your old M6100 GPU with vBIOS chip replace or perhaps flashing vBIOS with programmer + clips? I know that Nvidia cards have very low vBIOS chip so it's impossible to use clips but perhaps AMD card is better?
    P.S. blacksmoke, it isn't about your problem but do you see a frame rate limit option in Global profile or app profile on the latest drivers? Thanks.
