    Hi

    I have been testing the Bios and there is sometimes that my laptop it Freezes, but only by some seconds and then of some seconds approximate 30 can return and recovery themselves.
    I appreciate the great work the @Thiblizz. I do not use my laptop to play only to perform some work that does not demand much effort yet I wonder if it froze without demanding so much.
    I Will continue to prove and report news, and will perform some video rendering and conversion to test it.

    Greetings.

    Hi @Thiblizz, can you do further modify/correction for the bios in L502x ?

    1. Unable to boot from secondary drive (HDD caddy) if both Hdd presented in the laptop. (I can't do dual OS boot from 2 HDD in my L502X :(
    2. Rectify the "no SATA devices is found" issue if I boot with RAID setting enabled in the bios.

    I do really appreciate your great work, keep it up!!

    I add that to my TODO list, I know that works but you need to do some extra modifications on the boot record.
    I'm still looking if I can modify the BIOS to get some native detection, will need some time to understand.

    And of course I will do further updates/modifications to the BIOS, as my project is now stable and pushed on my GitHub, that means I can fully focus on debugging, keeping it updated, etc.
    And as this is my main computer for now, I want the best for it.

    And thank you for you kind words :).

    Very bad news, I was drunk and did not sleep the last 24hours, I tried some advanced modifications and I "accidentally" full bricked my PC.

    In 3 weeks I will begin my cybersecurity training program and don't have a computer...

    Anyway, I will receice soon new eeproms and a programmer to reflash my BIOS ;).

    PS: The latest version 1.0.1 on my GitHub is safe, so don't worry x).

    Awesome work @Thiblizz - just been checking out your github now. Obviously I can't use the files directly for my L511z, but it's refreshing to see the good work you've done here.

    Couple of suggestions:

    - Are you considering making the github a full raw repo together with compilation instructions? In that case I'll be able to pull just the modified mods for the L511z.
    - If so I'll be happy to upload all my L511z source to your repo as well so any users can clone/download/experiment from your repo.

    In any case well done - really good to see the initiative here.

    Best of luck in your upcoming cybersecurity course.

    A really great work from you. thank you very much for this bios.

    I7 / 540M / 16Gb Ram (1600) Samsung 850 SSD

    Before i use the Capitan Kasar bios. also i update my Intel ME from 6.xx to 7.1.80.1214 without the overclocking possibility.
    now i use your latest 1.0.1 bios. after a new Windows 10 install you recieve also a fresh Windows 10 Display Driver for a hd3000. perfect !!!

    edit: ist possible you bring a Intel ME with free overclocking? the Kasar mod dosnt work for me on Windows 10.

    greetings

    Sure I will buddy.

    As I can't access my laptop right now, I'm not able to do further modifications. But yeah I planned to do so.

    Did you bypass the descriptor security (pins bridged) or you unlocked it?

    oh Buddy. i hope you have soon Access to your nice laptop.

    no. Is this necessary to unlock the overclocking funktion? I thought the ME Firmware update is enough.

    (fast strings - on) your bios is really fast and rock stable. i test it over 13 hours nonstop benchmark and gaming.
    you do a great job.

    Wow, I'm impressed to hear that everything is running so smoothly (and stable).

    Yep, there is actually no way to get overclocking functions without unlocking (or bypassing) the Descriptor Security.

    If you did just flash the Intel ME patch in this post, it will do nothing.
    Simply because it won't be able to read nor write the chipset (as it is locked by default).

    Edit: You updated and patched your Intel ME firmware, but I doubt you tried anything related to overclocking.
    Did you?
