    I don't know about Windows 10, I'm pretty sure we can figure out how to make it work.
    My program will need an update to do that though.

    I am stuck at the Bios Hack patching instructions #8.......

    - Switch to command prompt on the USB key, in the python directory and do the "python advanced_menu.pydump.romnew.rom" command

    I go to my USB D:\> ......I have typed several things here but nothing works.....I get "the system cannot find the path specified"

    In my USB Disk D:\>, my subfolder is Portable Python 2.7.6.1\App which has the "advanced_menu.py" and the DUMP.ROM files.
    Can someone type out what this dummy needs to type in the prompt?

    d:
    cd portable python 2.7.6.1
    cd app

    (it helps if you rename the python folder to something simple)

    thank you! thank you! When I open command prompt, it feels like 1988 again.....I have forgotten much! I have my Vaio back!

    Last question.......do I remain in test mode indefinitely? Or go back to ComputerCowboy's patcher.exe to turn it off?

    Try both ways and see which one works better for you. I used to turn it off in Windows 7, but in Windows 8 I felt that leaving it in test mode gave me less trouble. Also, keep an eye on Windows Update - sometimes it thinks it has a better driver.

    Can anyone tell me what the temperatures are like during the BIOS flashing process? E.G. Does the fan go full blast? How long does this take? Just trying to figure out whether I should do this in a heavily airconditioned room, or just after cleaning the fan. I DO NOT want the laptop shutting down during flashing.

    I've downloaded Windows 10, I'm planning on installing it this weekend. We'll see how it goes with the drivers. At this point there aren't any nVidia drivers specifically for Windows 10. The mod and patch will need updating when there are new entries for Win 10 in the INF files. My theory is that the current patch will work with 10 for the moment. I guess we will find out soon enough.
