    I really haven't seen this type of file structure of a Clevo BIOS. But by the looks of it, the EC is separate from the BIOS. So in theory you should flash the EC first and than the BIOS, or both of them together. I think you should direct your questions to your reseller.

    @clams111 Typically you flash the EC first, run the MESET, and then flash the ME and the BIOS in the final step (or at least that's how ours has been structured - yours looks similar). If you copy the files onto a USB stick (formatted for FAT32), you should be able to boot from it, then follow the prompts in order.

    Hello. I am using a N950KP6/N957KP6 of Clevo. I downloaded this firmware from Clevo official support. It contain 1 zip file. extract the zip file contain only 1 folder like the pircture. I tried to follow your instruction. But I stuck at creating bootable usb drive. The link of zfactor's guide is death so I use Rufus choose option create freedos to create a bootable usb drive (I'm not sure) and then I copy the folder to the usb drive. I load the bios select the usb drive to boots, the laptop seem to boot to that usb but nothing happends, it just load a little and then boots back to the system. Please help

    Just an aside, I did MESET, bios flash, then EC flash, all worked fine (although after the bios flash my DOS environment bugged up but a restart fixed that).

    Also, my P670RS-G is doing random bootloops and restarts, and that is what got me to flash BIOS/EC to 1.07/1.05, anyone else having similar issues? I need my machine fixed soon or I might just call it a day and order a new gaming rig on Amazon.

    This looks like a BIOS flashing program for Windows, so a bootbale USB drive won't help. I think you need to run this from Windows or from a bootable Windows USB stick.

    Hey guys,
    hope I can get some input here. Sorry if this has been asked already.
    So i bought the Clevo Model PA70HS-G from a German reseller (Gamingguru) back in 2017.
    Now I am looking forward to update my Bios and someone in this thread posted following link:
    https://repo.palkeo.com/clevo-mirror/PA7XHS/

    What is the correct way to install the updates? Do i need em all?

    There are 3 (4?) different updates available:
    - Release EC version: 1.05.06 (newest I guess?)
    - Update BIOS Version to 1.05.11
    - Update MCU M2A906E9_00000084 AND Update ME:11.8.50.3434

    Looking into CPU-Z, my BIOS version is currently 1.05.07.
    So the one my Notebook came with.
    Is it safer to update my Notebook with the Obsidian Tool?

    Best Regards,
    crazy

    In theory, it should work, but we are short of BIOS modders, unfortunately.

    Owning a P650HP6-G from PCSpecialist with a 1.05.09 bios, can I then flash the latest from Clevo's website 1.05.11? I know PCSpecialist never release BIOS' for their clients.
