    Yay, with Xonar's expertise my RAM is running at 1333mhz now and the clock timing is 9-9-9-24 like I originally wanted. I am very happy. :)

    Thanks!!

    So xonar, you think it would be better as it is in my last post, Also need others comments as well before hand, lets make it perfect before i bed it into the rom. Or do you think i should do the red version as well with Gold MSI writing and Red beam and then include the logo changer and let them decide.

    Do you also want me to include in top coner the Dyan audio logo as well.

    Also i have found a nice working Windows Bios flasher now for Aptio 8 bios i will also upload that later as well works on both 64bit and 32bit installs of windows.

    Once question for you xonar how did you manage to get your name in the unlocked BIOS for the offical GT683 as i don't know how to do that.

    Nice this is good news. Will this bios work in my non-r gx660?? Does this bios allow for bios overclocking of my 920xm?

    Aptio 8 doesn't exist, you combined the two :p . It's either Aptio (UEFI) or AMIBIOS8 (Legacy). Also, DOS is infinitely many times safer to use than flashing through Windows. AMI | American Megatrends Inc. : BIOS and EFI Firmware

    It gets too confusing when you give people the choice. Everyone has a different taste and wants their own image/logo. The main purpose of this thread is the unlocked BIOS, let's not derail it. I wanted the comments section to act as an FAQ for people having issues, questions, requests and general feedback regarding the unlocked BIOS. If someone really wants it changed they can PM you. I don't know how hosting/linking non-public (OEM/ODM) tools will fly with the moderator team.

    You can edit string tables.


    I believe Geocake had the same worries. All the RAID BIOS means is under SATA Configuration you will have: IDE, AHCI and RAID. Just make sure to set it back to AHCI. It might have CPU OC'ing options, I don't know, I don't own the notebook. If you want to OC, why don't you use TS?

    Thanks for your input xonar, Will leave it with the Version i made logo wise.
    Going to ask Cyberpower for any new bios updates and see what they say like. If there is a new BIOS update i will then dump that as well and unlock it for you!

    I have the MS-1727 barebone and I've been flashing GX740 BIOSes to it on numerous occasions. I've never had any problems with it.

    Hi,

    I have the 1761 barebone and want to try out the unlocked bios. Is it safe to flash it with afuwingui in win7 x64?

    Another question: MSI says on their whitebook website that bios for MSI branded laptop is not compatible with barebone models. Is it really so? or they just try to scare ppl off. (I mean I won't hold anyone here responsible for answering yes or no. Just want to know the answer from experienced user here. I'm fine with the current setup and see no reason to flash a gt780dxr bios on my 1761.)

    thanks!

    The Bios & EC Firmware are different on some models from the barebone to the branded. The feature buttons and some bios features are not the same. Flashing the branded on the barebone with some models can cause major problems.
