    Hello,

    I got a new notebook and it came with the terrible Nvidia optimus.
    In the past I managed to modded bios to unlock the BIOS menus in my previous notebooks.

    But now I'm have to learn everything again...

    My notebook is a MSI GE62VR, it has Aptio V AMI BIOS (not UEFI) which I was able to extract with 5.08.02.1189, modified with AMIBCP 5.01.0014.

    When I tried to flash I got BIOS checksum error (AFUDOS and AFUWIN).
    I tried one unmodified dump and got same error. For every dump I got a different checksum.

    Anyone can tell me what's wrong?

    Thanks!

    (OP)
    I managed to dump and to flash the BIOS with INTEL FPT.
    After modified with AMIBCP for aptio V and flash, the menus remains locked.


    I believe it's hard coded.

    Meanwhile I extracted setup.ffs but I don't know which HEX sequence I should look for.


    Any directions?
