    I have a Samsung Slate 7 (700T1A-A04US) and I need to be able to password the BIOS. This option is not currently available. I have the latest BIOS from Samsung for this model (Version 08FW). Does anyone out there have a BIOS Mod that includes the Security Tab with the option to password protect the BIOS? I would really appreciate a copy if one is available. I have never modded a BIOS and I have looked at a couple of tools but none of them open the BIOS I download from Samsung (it is an executable file). I for the life of me cannot understand why they would offer a system with a TPM for encryption but leave the BIOS wide open.

    Thanks

    Update to the latest bios, then use this to make a backup, then use AMIBCP to unhide the hidden pages (if any).

    Which version of AMIBCP should I be using and where do I get it? I have tried 4 different versions (3.12, 3.13, 7.60, 8.95) and none are able to open the backup bios rom.
