    Hi, I require a BIOS unlock for the HP DM4-3005tx laptop. Just a brief intro, the DM4-3000 series is actually designed based on the DV6-6000 series Intel notebooks. While it shares design and software similarities on a lot of aspects, they use different UEFIs.

    Note: This piece of BIOS is consistently used throughout all Intel based HP DM4-3000 series laptops. I hope while unlocking the BIOS for me, this will also help other people running the DM4-3000 laptops trying to work around locks set by HP. The DM4 series is actually quite *dwarfed* by the DV series but there's a good number of people using the DM4-3000 too. So here are the relevant stuffs.

    BIOS: Insyde H2O
    Revision:v3.5
    Version: F.0A released around end may (Previous version was F.08 if anyone remembered)
    Link: ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp57001-57500/sp57375.exe

    If a removal of menu is necessary, the following can be removed in order of priority:

    1. Security
    2. Diagnostics
    3. System Configuration


    What I need (In order of priority):
    • SATA mode (For swapping to AHCI instead of RAID, better still, more SATA modes) Yes, I bought an SSD
    • If possible, the stuff inside the advanced menu, specifically thermal configuration
    • Unblock blocked Wi-Fi cards (If its not embedded in advanced)

    Pictures of the current BIOS:

    docs.google.com/open?id=0B3WSRFr...Xc1NFhUeXM
    docs.google.com/open?id=0B3WSRFr...zlRdFZ0aWc


    I hope the information helps. Please PM/Post if some additional info is helpful for creating the mod because I don't know how to Mod the BIOS myself. I'd like to learn it sometime though... :(
