    I ordered a "Clevo NH55AFW" which probably won't have an unlocked Bios, but the "XMG Apex 15" will.
    Is it possible to just flash the "XMG Apex 15" Bios on a regular "Clevo NH55AFW" if someone were to upload it?

    Most likely you will be able to grab it from here:

    But dunno if you can flash it or not. Wait for someone to confirm

    Thanks for the reply!
    I am kinda hoping that the "Clevo NH55AFW" has some kind of BIOS flashing Safety features. Maybe a second BIOS or Bios reflashing etc.

    If you brick the machine, you'll need a programmer to hopefully get it back to life.

    Yeah, very likely.
    Would be lovely if the board had a second bios chip tho.
    Bios-flashback is extremely useful.

    I have flashed my p775tm1 with XMG ultra 17 bios - no issues. You just need to ensure it's same model

    Thats really good to know!

    That means flashing XMG on a regular Clevo has worked in the past, so there is at least a half-decent chance it will work on this one as well.

    Yes they are the same physically if you get the same model. You may void your warranty though if you have one.
