Sony :: How To Backup Vaio Z Original Bios While Flashing New Bios

Oct 16, 2009

Updated: Found a better way to backup Bios only, Please see the end of this message

Let say your Vaio Z is using Bios R4040M3 and you move to Bios R4041M3 to use the official VT support. Later on, you want to move back to R4040M3 to use the Advance Menu hack. Unfortunately, you cannot move back as Sony never publish the R4040M3 Bios update. This is my current situation.

I decided to investigate a way to back up the current Bios. Using a program called Universal extractor, I managed to extracted the files in the original Bios update. The bios update uses a program called Insydeflash to flash the Bios. The Insydeflash uses a file called platform.ini to control its setting.

In the platform.ini file, there is a section called [FDFile]. The section [FDFile] has a parameter called BackupName. If we put in a file name here, the Insydeflash should save your current Bios into that file. Unfortunately, I cannot make it work with the Sony supplied Insydeflash. (version 3.38).

I managed to get the newer version of Insydeflash (version 3.72). The newer version has a new ini section called [BackupROM], as the following:

..........
[BackupROM]
Flag=0
FilePath=c:
FileName=....................

Dell :: BIOS Hack To Enable Intel VT And/or AHCI On Inspiron

Nov 20, 2009

when I got my 9400/E1705 I was always sad for not having the AHCI option available in the BIOS.

This was asked for so many times:

- "Notebooks BIOS should support AHCI"
[url]

- "Enable AHCI in Dell Notebook BIOS"
[url]

- "Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!"
Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!

- "Give us real bios control"
[url]

- "Bios release"
[url]

In the Sony forum, they have found a way to activate these options even if they're not present in the BIOS:

How to Enable Intel VT and AHCI on a Napa/Santa Rosa platform Phoenix BIOS Vaio laptop
...
The only item you'll need is a bootable DOS media. Click one of these links for instruction for creating a bootable floppy disk (with USB floppy drive) or usb stick.USB flash1 or USB flash2 or CDR (add modified table file to image before writing).
Instructions:

1.Download symcmos and copy it to your bootable DOS media. This utility is used to modify your Phoenix BIOS settings. Also, download a DOS text editor and copy it to the media if you feel comfortable editing a file in DOS.

2.Go to the BIOS by pressing F2 during start-up, or when the VAIO logo appears, and reset the settings to factory default. Save and reboot.

3.Go back to the BIOS and enable the boot from external devices option. Save and reboot.

4.Press ESC when the VAIO logo appears to bring up the boot selection menu and select the bootable DOS media. At the prompt, type "symcmos -v2 -lDefault.txt", without quotes, and note that there's no space in between the flag and filename. This will create a literal symbol table from the NVRAM named Default.txt which contains all the current BIOS settings. Reboot by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del. If that doesn't work, hold the power button until the notebook turns off.

5.Use the DOS text editor (or boot to another OS and use a text editor there) to edit the generated Default.txt file. Change the following lines and save the modified file to something else (e.g. modified.txt):

For Napa SZs - R0112N0

AHCI: (015C) [0000] ---> (015C) [0001]

VT-x: (0354) [0000] ---> (0354) [0001]...

HP Envy Dv7 7304tx :: How To Enable AHCI Mode (which Is Not Possible In The BIOS) To Optimize The SSD

Nov 25, 2014

I have an HP ENVY dv7-7304tx now succesfully running a Samsung 840 Evo SSD as the primary disk. The second disk is the original spinning disk.
 
Samsung Magician software tells me I need to enable AHCI mode (which is not possible in the BIOS) to optimise the SSD.
 
Does this have the same or similar solution to that provided in the link here? : [URL]....
 
Would there be any negative consequences for the spinning disk?

HP Envy SleekBook 6-1153eo OS/Software :: Enable AHCI In Windows 8 / BIOS

Feb 14, 2013

My computer:
HP Envy Sleekbook 6 - 1153eo
Windows 8 Pro
 
AHCI is currently disabled on my computer and I wish to enable it to get the most performance out of it. It can easily be enabled via the windows registry but to get it working i need to be sure that AHCI is currently enabled in the BIOS aswell. When I enter the BIOS there just isnt any advanced options available, only time and date and other basics. How do i find out wether or not AHCI is enabled in the BIOS? How do i get access to the advanced options in the BIOS to turn on AHCI (if it isnt already enabled that is)?

Dell Inspiron 1720 :: Difference Between ATA And AHCI Settings For SATA Operation In BIOS

Aug 31, 2007

I just got my new 1720 Inspiron, and I had a problem when trying to create an image of the C and D drive using the Ultimate Boot CD (BART), it would never see my hard disk partitions.  I changed the BIOS setting for the On Board Devices from AHCI (default) to ATA for SATA operation.  I also had to change the Flash Cache Module to be disabled, it was enabled in the Factory Default.  The result of these changes was good, I was able to see my C and D drive when booting from my Ultimate Boot CD. What these changes do?  Should I leave my BIOS at the new setting, or will I lose performance from my hard disk?

At boot Intel Matrix Storage Configuration doesnot appear anymore (where you can build RAID etc).
 
Boot then brings up message "missing operating system".
 
Downgrade to BIOS 1.05 impossible, due to ISO File on www.lenovo.com support is not system compatible, message "Lenovo Group Limited - Invalid system disk; Replace te disk, and then press any key")
(The link to the ISO File version 1.05 at the bottom of this page links a non bootable ISO image [URL]....)
Also the downgrade to BIOS version 1.08 found here [URL] .... does not work, CD also messages "Lenovo Group Limited - Invalid system disk - Replace ...").
 
Rewriting BIOS version 2.05 (GNET57WW) does not work (says "BIOS update not necessary").

Sony :: Vaio BIOS

Jul 10, 2009

I am very close to deciding on Sony for my next machine.

Half of the people hate them. Half love them. Half the reviews say there are crap. Half say they are machines built by Gods.

It is a lot to sift through.

The WEIRDEST thing I have heard is about the BIOS and how it is not really a completely hardware controlled BIOS like most are .....
