    Is there any way to change the service tag on a Dell XPS 15 9550 ?

    I have tried Dell Platform Tags v4.0.27.0, AMI DMIEdit and other old Dell tools but nothing has worked. With Platform Tags I can change the asset tag successfully but there is no listed option to change the service tag. Am I missing something or am I using the wrong tool ??

    I read about SmMfgCfg32/64.exe but apparently I need a file called s2token.tbl because this tool is made to be run / connect to Dells internal network. I also read about changing the asset tag to "pass:12/34" which would put the board into manufacturing mode, but I have not tried this yet (and don't know if it will allow me to change the service tag since it seems this is mostly for SLIC modification).

    I have the old board with me but I have not yet swapped the ROM chips or started playing around with the external programmer.

    Any help would be much appreciated :)

    On some boards (I have experience with DELL desktop boards only) there is jumper labeled "SERVICE" (in notebook it could be a pair of pads) - when I shorted it out, it cleared the service tag and allowed me to enter it again directly from BIOS setup (I am not sure now if I needed to power the system up with the jumper closed) You could try to look for something like that.

    Hi, i am looking for an asus tool called bt2.exe. All i can find on the web is the older Version of the tool bt.exe, but it seems that this one is too old for my Notebook as i get "no support extf function" error when trying to use it.

    I am trying to get my keyboard backlight back to life in my asus ROG g752vsk after a RMA. There are several posts on the web if you want to Look up what needs to bei done , but here is a short description:

    I need to edit cnfg page of eeprom/nvram and change the DD block fromm FF to 7C with the command: bt2.exe -c cnfg /w DD 7C

    With the older Version of bt i get the error mentioned above so i need the never version bt2, or any other tool that is able to edit that cnfg page.

    Rewriting my bios dump with mmtool and a hex Editor and reflashing with afudos did Flash succesfully, but the changes did reset back to FF after flashing so this does not work unfortunatly.

    Appreciate any help or a link/message with the needed tool :) thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    I am trying to write a BIOS with a changed ROM-ID to a X11 Supermicro motherboard. New BIOS versions only likes AFUWIN AFUEFI etc over version 5.09 with that board.
    Unfortunately /X Switch does not bypass the ROM-ID check and it gives ROM-ID mismatch when you try to write it.

    I do not have a AFU version that is equal or later than 5.09 that I can use /GAN switch. Does anybody have a version that is 5.09 or later that I can use /GAN switch or do you know if the switch is changed ?

    Thank you

    Unfortunately it could not read the firmware file. Regular public AFUWINX64, AFUEFI over 5.09 works but those will not accept /GAN
    Thank you for the link though. If anybody has a solution or information I appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Is there some universal BIOS tool that can read, write and erase Windows CD-Keys?
    I ask because I purchased a laptop with Windows 8 pre-installed and I have forgotten the CD-Key.

    EDIT: I forgot to ask about Intel AMT/ME. I have heard of people either disabling it or removing it entirely without any problems.
