    Hi, I'm trying to update the ec on my clevo N850HK1. I've got the necessary files on a bootable usb drive, but when I boot into dos and type in ecflash.bat, this message pops up:
    "The ROM file size is over 64K.".

    Contents of the usb drive:

    I've already asked my reseller, but they couldn't tell what was going wrong. Entering the error message into google also gave me nothing.
    Does anyone have any clue as to what could be the problem?

    I think I've seen this before if you update from an older version of BIOS to a newer one. You might need to flash an intermediate version, before going to the latest one.

    IIRC the .EFI and .NSH files are too big for FreeDOS (assuming you made it bootable for that environment), which might explain the error. Are you trying to run this with UEFI enabled or disabled?

    Yes, I used Rufus to make it bootable for FreeDOS, as my reseller instructed me to do. UEFI was disabled when I tried it.

    I don't think you will get the larger .efi or .nsh files to work in a FreeDOS environment. Everything now seems to be flashed using those with UEFI enabled.

    What would you suggest I do? I'm not sure how to proceed.

    Hello

    Were you able to manage the fan speed on Clevo W150HNM model ?

    I have the same issue: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/clevo-w150-hr-change-the-fan-do-i-need-to-upgrade-it.827976/

    After I have changed the thermal paste it was not sufficient to stop the fan. As it is always on, even at low temperature, I guess that it could be some BIOS problem.The BIOS is Phoenix SecureCore Tiano Setup

    I do appreciate if someone could help me!

    Your drive needs to be made bootable for UEFI, so you'll have to get additional/different files from your seller to make that work. The update process should be the same otherwise.

    I am not a specialist on BIOS update. At Clevo website there is no recent files about it. Probably I will leave it at it is.

    Thank you for your help
