    Hi JRandomHacker

    I have an M3800, the one with 4702HQ processor, 3200 x 1800 touchscreen display. My bios is A09. When opening my setup.bin in IFR extractor, I can see this,

    Code:
                                       Form Sets
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Offset:        Title:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    0x4A09F        Main (0x71)
    0x4A369        Advanced (0x73)
    0x4A962        Intel (0xA5)
    0x4AA55        Security (0x77)
    0x4B809        Boot (0x79)
    0x4C0EB        Exit (0x7B)
    0x4C334        Main (0x7)
    0x5DA16        Advanced (0x1D)
    0x67F9C        Chipset (0x1F)
    0x71C4F        Boot (0x21)
    0x72D57        Security (0x3C)
    0x735F5        Save & Exit (0x50)
    
    the menus, but offset is a bit different, and the (0x71) beside the menu title is also different, I guess that's ok, maybe we have different bios versions.


    But my IFR.txt does not have this, the one below.

    Code:
    Main         01
    Advanced     01
    Intel        00
    Security     01
    Boot         01
    Exit         01
    Main         00
    Advanced     00
    Chipset      00
    Boot         00
    Security     00
    Save&Exit    00
    
    is that normal?

    but when i load my setup.bin in hexedit, i can find 01 01 00 01 01 01 00 00 00 00. should i just change it? even if i dont see the one above on my IFR.txt?

    thanks

    I have the same problem as above.

    My file looks roughly ike this ;

    Offset: Title:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Main
    Advanced
    Chipset
    Security
    Boot
    Exit



    So it doesn't appear there are extra menus to unlock.

    However in Amibcp 4.5 I can see all the extra menus.

    Now when I change the same string of bytes nothing unlocks for me.


    Also when in Amibcp, if I change settings from default to 'user' , again the menu will not appear.

    This is for a sager np8170 (or clevo p170hm).
    Have the same issue with the np8150 / p150hm.

    Would be good to know if there is a furber trick or something to check.
