    I am now waiting too for updated links to the unlocked BIOS for the L702X. I own the L702X for some years now and I never knew I needed an unlocked BIOS until I needed some fix for the L502X and came across the Capitan Kasar's unlocked bios. I need an eagle splash screen at start up, please!

    Thank you, I've just bought a second L702X (the GT555M version) and some other goodies (4x dimms Kingston FuryX DDR3 2166MHz, a second Intel Core i7 2960XM, some high end thermal grease, Intel AX200 WiFi 6 cards with PCIE adapters etc.) and this is coming in very handy in updating / upgrading both laptops.

    Doing my due diligence, I have started reading the topic from the beginning and noted that the video cards are coming in two flavours, the GF106 and the GF116.

    I have the GT550 M GF116 BIOS 70.26.40.00.04.

    Are these BIOS files suitable for my laptop?

    LE: I have tried the "capitanKasar5 2F" bioses, they both work and allowed my memory to run at 2133MHz instead of the default 1333MHz. As the only visible difference, with the L702X_A19-2F_generic_Unlocked_Menus_&_updated_cpu_microcode May 2019 anti Spectre.zip you also get Capitan Kasar's Eagle splash screen, so I'll keep this version on.

    I can confirm that with the capitanKasar5 2F\ L702X_A19-2F_generic_Unlocked_Menus_&_updated_cpu_microcode May 2019 anti Spectre.zip I get the Eagle splash screen.

    While I am very grateful to you guys for posting and re-posting these custom BIOSes (got both my L702X GT 550M and L702X GT 555M laptops upgraded), I must admit that I couldn't figure the difference between the different files. Beta sounded unfinished, so I've settled for the above version which comparing with the stock BIOS, offers me everything I wished for: stability, unlocked RAM frequency, and the possibility to disable BD-PROCHOT in the L702X GT 555M laptop in which the CPU was defaulting otherwise to 0.798 GHz despite no high temps on the CPU / GPU (probably a bad sensor or a less powerful-than rated power brick).

    I wish I would have the same BIOS unlock on my Toshiba Qosmio X70-A and the Clevo PC50DN2.

    I have not figured yet a way to play with CPU or GPU voltages to find a more stable profile, but things are already as good as I could hope, so probably I will stop here.

    Is there someone who was able to use this laptop in raid configuration?
    I'm really to old to get the raid to work. Can somebody give me an step by step manual for an bootable raid config win 10? If I activate the raid menu I can instal win 10 but I struggle always with the boot menu. One time I accidently could boot from an ssd raid but the access the the boot menu stopped working.
    I know on page 60 the menu. Is there an youtube video anywhere where the process is visible? Sorry for my questions.
    Best regards
