    Depends on your Notebook model (vendor, bios type) and even with this information there maybe different ways to do.

    You found nothing at your Notebook vendors Website (e.g. Asus see here) or user manual?

    P.S. and Read all of this post (especially from 2(b) to end)

    I made a boot disk, put my modded bios along with plash17 exe on the disk. Booted in dos and typed in command above but it doesnt do anything.
