    Ah, Wow. I haven't really maintained the initial post in a while because now we get the BIOS / EC from here: https://repo.palkeo.com/clevo-mirror

    But yeah, yours is newer than what we can find in Palkeo's repo. You can upload it to megaupload or some other file sharing service and I will add it to the initial post.

    I advise you to download them and upload them where you see fit, I cant guarantee the files not being erased or blocked in the future due to inactivity.

    cheers!

    Hi all,
    I'm Timo and am new here. Following this thread I was able to get service manuals and also a new Clevo-BIOS Update for my Clevo NV41ME - thanks for that!
    However I'm now experiencing problems. I figured here are some Bios-Experts and people with good Clevo-Insights involved. So maybe someone has a hint for me:

    After the BIOS update to 1.07.05 (from palkeos mirror for my model) the Thunderbolt 4 port was not working anymore. Am I missing anything? Spoiler: I was able to revert using my BIOS-dump (1.07.04) (made using a ch341a+clip).

    Things I did:
    - Make an EFI-Boot-Drive on USB
    - Place BIOS/ALL folder on USB
    - Boot into EFI-Shell
    - Unlock ME using MESET.efi
    - Reboot into EFI-Shell
    - Flash ME+BIOS using FLASHME.efi (or nsh?)

    Instead of flashing using FLASHME.efi I also tried flashing using FLASHALL.efi without better success.
    To revert back from 1.07.05 -> 1.07.04 I first used the stock bios provided by the palkeo-mirror. Here I ran into the same issue (thunderbolt not working).
    Finally I flashed my own BIOS-Dump using EFI-Shell and FLASHALL.efi. Afterwards everything worked as before.

    Thanks in advance
    Timo

    Sidenote:
    Inside the 1.07.05 archive are release-notes stating:
    1.07.03:
    "[...] 1.SUPPORT RETIMER F/W CAPSULE UPDATA [...]"
    1.07.04:
    "[...] 2.Add Keep TBT Re-timer capsule update info solution. [...]"

    Maybe due to this "capsule solution" the thunderbolt portion is not updated properly? Do I have to extract anything using uefitool or just update a portion of the Bios using a special command?

    Generally in such a situation either wait for a new BIOS update or email whoever sold your laptop about the problems you had with your BIOS update. Generally, these problems will get forwarded to Clevo and make their way in a future BIOS update.

    Look at the BIOS updates in the palkeo link in the initial post. See if any of them have any critical updates.

    Ahh, they don't write anymore. Clevo used to write next to the version number what they fixed.
