    Yes, I've exactly the oposite problem to tferi's at forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/32952-Flashing-Dell-M65-BIOS-on-D820-motherboard-Please-need-help!

    I could also settle with a SLIC 2.1 modded bios for the M65 though..

    Thanks for any inputs!

    Wow, that was fast! Many many thanks.

    Just to be sure, after flashing this my system will be again a D820 for all intents except for the GPU which will need the Quadro FX350M driver instead of the Quadro NVS 120M one. Right?

    I'll be back right after flashing with rc :)

    Unfortunately I'm getting the <<Cannot use a "Dell System Latitude D820" BIOS in a "Dell System Precision M65">> error :(

    This is executing "D820_A10 -readgzfile" as per instructed by the readme.
    What should I try now? Maybe renaming the file inside de gz archive to some magical filename?

    You got the wrong zip...there are two there (D820->M65 and M65->D820).

    You want the "Dell_CrossFlash_M65_to_D820.zip" and then run "M65_A10 -readgzfile".

    Right! And I was wondering why there were two identical downloads, silly me...
    Thanks, it works now.

    The gpu is detected as an nvs 120m thoug. What do I have now, an nvs 120m with an fx350m bios?
    Not really sure that'd be better than leaving this board as a pure M65.

    Let me know what you end up doing. I have a few D820's in my lab and I'm curious if the M65 BIOS is any better.

    That is great. I originally thought the other file was the original one you prepared for tferi. That one would flash an NVS 120M BIOS over a D820 mo-bo if I'm not mistaken.

    Nice to be able to go switch back and forth. Many many thanks :)

    I'll let you know when I check (in a couple days). I dont expect anything spectacular except for maybe being able to install some drivers with more user selectable options. The ones from Dell are pretty stripped down, you know...

    At the end of the day those cards are good for barely running aero and not much more but, hey!

    I updated the link in my original post here.

    But you want the D820->M65 CrossFlash from the other thread.

    Good luck!
