    FOR OLDER CLEVO MODELS (RELEASED BEFORE 2012) WHICH HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED AND THUS NO LONGER RECEIVE BIOS UPDATES YOU SHOULD CHECK THIS THREAD: http://forum.notebookreview.com/sager-clevo/556299-clevo-bios-older-models.html



    Before reading this thread, please know that this thread should not exist in the first place. While the option to email your Clevo reseller and ask for the latest BIOS is considered now the official policy of obtaining the latest BIOS, it should be noted that Clevo is the only major notebook manufacturer that has such a policy. My opinion alongside that of other users which have posted in this thread is that a reputable notebook manufacturer like Clevo should make BIOS updates publically available.

    *DISCLAIMER*

    IF YOU HAVE A FRIENDLY CLEVO RESELLER THAT CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH THE LATEST BIOS I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU TO GET THE BIOS FROM HIM RATHER THAN FROM THIS THREAD.

    IN CASE YOU MANAGE TO BRICK YOUR MACHINE BY TRYING TO FLASH YOUR BIOS I HOLD NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR SUCH AN OUTCOME. BY PROCEDING TO DOWNLOAD ANY OF THE BIOS POSTED IN THIS THREAD AND UPDATING YOUR SYSTEM BIOS AND KBC/EC WITH SUCH A BIOS YOU AGREE TO THIS RULE.


    How do I flash the BIOS ?


    First you need to get the latest BIOS, generally you should do this by emailing your reseller for it. IF this is not possible then you can still download it from this thread. The BIOS comes either as an ISO or as an archive. The BIOS is made of two parts, a system bios and an EC/KBC.

    The latest BIOS will always contain all the updates of previous BIOS releases.

    ALWAYS UPDATE THE EC/KBC FIRST AND THEN THE SYSTEM BIOS.




    How to update:

    Method I (using a USB stick)
    If the bios is an archive then this is what you need to do:

    1. Make a bootable USB stick using zfactor's guide available here: how to flash your bios with dos using a usb stick:
    (Alternatively you can make a bootable CD).
    2. If you have the BIOS and the EC/KBC files in separate archives or in separate folders, copy them to the USB stick but keep them separate, don't mix their files in the same folder. If they come in a single folder/archive then copy them as they are, in a single folder.
    3. Now restart your laptop and boot from the USB stick.
    4. If all goes well you should now be in DOS mode. Type "dir" to see the folders you have on the USB stick. Now navigate to the folder where you have the EC/KBC files, type "cd <folder name>" to get inside the folder.
    5. Once you are in the folder with your EC/KBC files, type "update.bat". If you have your EC/KBC files in the same folder with the rest of the BIOS files, then type "step1.bat" or "updateEC.bat".
    6. Wait for the system to be flashed, it should reboot automatically once it is done. If it does not, then give it some time, make sure the system has finished the flashing otherwise you will brick your laptop.
    7. Once this stage is complete, boot again from the USB stick.
    8. Navigate to the folder where you have your BIOS files.
    9. Type "update.bat" to update the BIOS. If you have your EC/KBC files in the same folder with the rest of the BIOS files, then type "step2.bat" or "updateBIOS.bat".
    10. Wait for the system to be flashed, it should reboot automatically once it is done. If it does not, then give it some time, make sure the system has finished the flashing otherwise you will brick your laptop.
    11. Your Done.

    Method II (using an ISO file)
    If the BIOS you have downloaded is an ISO file.

    1. Burn the ISO to a CD.
    2. Now restart and boot from the CD/DVD.
    3. If all goes well you should now be in DOS mode. Type "dir" to see the folders you have on the USB stick. Now navigate to the folder where you have the EC/KBC files, type "cd <folder name>" to get inside the folder.
    4. Once you are in the folder with your EC/KBC files, type "step1.bat".
    5. Wait for the system to be flashed, it should reboot automatically once it is done. If it does not, then give it some time, make sure the system has finished the flashing otherwise you will brick your laptop.
    6. Once this stage is complete, boot again from the CD.
    7. Navigate to the folder where you have your BIOS files.
    8. Type "step2.bat" to update the BIOS.
    9. Wait for the system to be flashed, it should reboot automatically once it is done. If it does not, then give it some time, make sure the system has finished the flashing otherwise you will brick your laptop.
    10. Done


    !!!In the attention of all Sager users!!!
    For the Clevo models P170EM (Sager NP9170), P150EM (Sager NP9150/NP9130), W110ER (NP6110) as well as any other CLEVO model using the same generation chipset and/or CPU, it is strongly recommended that you keep to a Sager branded BIOS, therefore just email Sager if you want a BIOS update, they will email you back with the latest version. The reason why this is recommended is because, while you can flash a vanilla Clevo BIOS on a Sager laptop, trying to flash back to a Sager BIOS MIGHT BRICK your laptop and you will have to pay to have it
    fix.

    There is a method however that might allow you to flash a Sager BIOS over a Clevo one, but this method is very risky and should only be used if absolutely necessary. More here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/sager-clevo/675141-clevo-bios-sager-bios.html#post8678736



    It is not recommended to downgrade any Clevo/Sager BIOS to any previous version. Any such attempt might brick your laptop.


    For P series notebooks, updating to a Windows 8 BIOS might require users to update first both the EC and BIOS to at least version 1.00.04. Users having older EC/KBC and BIOS versions should not attempt to update to BIOS/EC versions 1.02.xx.

    Hey, i've not done a bios update before, i am pretty worried about doing this lol. Basically i bought a laptop from pcspecialist.com, as long as i have had it, it's been getting too hot on a lot of games and it only gets worse. On PCspecialist the laptop was called Vortex III. It isn't on there anymore as it was removed in place of Vortex IV now. I spoke to pcspec through email three times now and every time they just ask the same questions, i explain and say i want a bios update. Then they just stop replying to me and ignore the emails. On DxDiag, my system manufacturer is listed as CLEVO. and my BIOS part says BIOS: BIOS Date: 04/23/12 14:00:30 Ver: 04.06.05, I'm just confused as to what BIOS to download from here, my system model is a P150EM, reading the part about sager and CLEVO being basically the same is what is confusing me and i don't know what BIOS i should be grabbing. My GPU is a Radeon HD 7970M, i want to get the BIOS update to unlock the fan control. Sorry that this message is really long winded, just getting confused as to whether i am getting sager, clevo or whatever. Thanks guys.

    You look on the back of the laptop or you go into BIOS. It writes there somewhere.

    I own a P170EM running the 1.00.04 BIOS and the 1.00.05 KBC/EC firmware.

    It runs absolutely fine, so I'm wondering if upgrading to the newest BIOS will do anything positive for my machine? The posted release notes are close to useless, but the "Modify fan table" entry sounds like it would improve the cooling system.

    Is upgrading worth the hassle? Will I be able to go straight to EC/KBC v1.02.12 and BIOS v1.02.17 provided I flash the machine in that order?

    Do you find the fans annoying? Are they kicking in when they should not?

    If you have no issues leave it, maybe you wont like the new fan profile as much.
