    Not that I'm aware, a15 was just security patch with loss to performance so most that desired it stayed with a14

    A14+ is on the forums, flash is the simplest process imaginable.

    That is the version that anyone is referring to when they mention an unlocked bios.

    Well my screen came in hooked it up and i didn’t install windows 10 on my uefi it’s on my legacy bios I did disabled the legacy rom, secure boot, windows 8 fast boot disabled, when I put on my 970m the screen beeps 8 times and when I take it out the screen turns on and I don’t get a Alienware logo and it beep 8 times it’s not having windows 10 installed on my uefi causing this?
