    I'm having a lot of issues flashing my bios. I have made my own modified/unlocked bios for GX60 1AC. I have watched a lot of tutorials on how to flash it, but everyone is using a different method. Also people has a file called FLASH.BAT which they execute in MSDOS. but i don't have that. I only have a file called: FLASHEFIX64.NSH or something like that.. Could any guide me through this?

    This is all the files i have:

    This is the guide i followed:

    Thanks for the info & the link.
    It doesn't have anything for the MSI GX60 1AC which is the model I have. Is there another link for that?

    Ignore it all! I managed to unlock my bios for the MSI GX60 1AC all by myself :D

    After that i did this for testing:

    1. BIOS>Advanced>CPU Configuration>

    PSS Support - change to DISABLED
    C6 Mode - change to DISABLED

    2. BIOS>Advanced>GFX Configuration>

    Integrated Graphics - change to FORCE
    PSPP Policy - change to PERFORMANCE

    3. BIOS>Advanced>AMD Power Express Configuration>

    PX Dynamic Mode Switch - change to DISABLED

    Hoping that i get a little more performance. But when i look in the MSI Afterburner it still doesn't use the 7970m all the time.. Any idea?

    Hi,

    How did you get past your earlier issue? I have the same one after trying to unlock the bios: `Error 18: unable to start a Secure Flash session`

    Edit: I use the EFI shell, slightly different than what you posted, but it works for me with the "original" bios and is what is supported for my machine..

    I used another method of flashing.
    https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thr...-MSI-BIOS-to-unlock-full-features-UEFI-Aptio4

    I followed that tutorial, Slightly changed some paths etc and it all works perfectly!

    I think this part:
    AFUDOS v3.06 (BIOS update utility from AMI for DOS with BIOS security bypass feature)

    Is what bypasses the secure flash thingy. Not sure tho.

    Hello
    I am currently in the reinstalation of the system on a laptop. Unfortunately, I can not update the system to version 8.1 (error 82% ..). I am asking for information about the latest drivers for windows 8 for graphics in this laptop.
    Thanks for help.

    Do a clean install, and obtain drivers from both MSI website as well as AMD website.
