    I will do it ;) , but need more evidence for that... sorry if I was little late to answer :)

    about the BIOS... I think you are entering the BIOS as a user .. not as a administrator

    Do you see when entering the BIOS on the first page at Acess level : administrator ? or user? what does it says exactly? :)

    for example this....

    If you are administrator you should be able to take a dump BIOS ;) other than that... I can't help , sorry :)

    Sorry, I didn't update it. I was able to extract the rom and hdr file using command line switches from Dell EXE.
    I edited the BIOS entries from default to USER.
    MSI uses a different page for displaying info as per your screenie. Whereas Dell uses modified setup screen and menus as per AMIBCP. I enabled HWP and lot of things and I'm afraid of bricking it. Luckily, Dell issued a BIOS update to fix uCode issue and as an enhancement they updated GOP and IRST ROM. The performance is similar to VMWARE ucode patch, no difference at all.

    No problem at all ;) , Happy to know that thing got sorted out ! I guess Dell is showing some care to its consumer on major problems but not on minors things :) and I'm sure other like ASUS, MSI,etc... will follow the same thing :)
