#1 [request] Asus k55v Bios "hot-plug"/ "hot-swap" unlock by Bou 15.06.2017 16:22

Hello guys
im new to this forum.
Im sorry if i posted in the wrong section :|
my story in a nutshell is that i bought "GDC V8 Mini pci-e" and a 1050 Ti graphics card
i connected it instead of the wireless slot in my laptop

when i login to windows it shows me that there is a 1050 card, but it says windows stopped it code 43
i searched online and they told me that i need to "Mod my bios" to enable "Advanced tab " "Hot-plug" option

So please could anyone help me ?
this is really my last hope Sad

This is my bios read from "Bios backup toolkit"
https://www.dropbox.com/s/uzu3d4q3zkarg9...VD.411.rom?dl=0

and this is the original rom from the asus website ( i dont know if this helps ):

You probably mean the Hot Plug option in Chipset - PCH-IO Configuration - PCI Express Configuration

@Ferrous,i'm little bit off topic here but by any chance you know a way to unlock the CPU multiplier as well as the DRAM options in similar ASUS laptop bios?

How did you flash the modified bios?

@dani_tx
It's impossible to unlock the multiplier of a non-K CPU.

Using AFUDOS.exe and Rufus to make the usb bootable
did i do something wrong :( ?

#9 RE: [request] Asus k55v Bios "hot-plug"/ "hot-swap" unlock by Ferrous 15.06.2017 20:42

What parameter(s) did you use with AFUDOS?
Only the Main Block is modified, so it should be Afudos filename /p

#10 RE: [request] Asus k55v Bios "hot-plug"/ "hot-swap" unlock by Bou 15.06.2017 23:52

Aha, i see.
i wrote "afudos bios.rom /GAN"
i will try /p now and tell u what happens

#11 RE: [request] Asus k55v Bios "hot-plug"/ "hot-swap" unlock by Bou 15.06.2017 23:58

Now when i try /p i get this error:

"Reading flash .... done
FFS checksums ... ok
Erasing Main Block ... 0x00000000 (0%)
3 - Error : Problem erasing flash"

It seems that your BIOS is somehow write-protected.
Try Intel Flash Programming Tool v8 instead.
fpt -f filename -bios

EDIT: Have you tried the "Easy Flash" option in the BIOS settings?

#13 RE: [request] Asus k55v Bios "hot-plug"/ "hot-swap" unlock by Bou 16.06.2017 05:45

Easy flash doesn't recognize the modded rom :(, i have tried to rename it to the original name and still doesnt work :(

About the "Inter flash programming tool" could you please give me some tips? like what to download or if there is a simple video to watch? i got lost in this huge post :(

Maybe Easy flash only recognizes capsulated bios. Try the attach capsule bios instead. (PS: DO NOT flash a capsule with FPT!)

#15 RE: [request] Asus k55v Bios "hot-plug"/ "hot-swap" unlock by Bou 16.06.2017 06:47

It recognizes it, but it says "Old build press Enter to return" :(

My current version is 411 and the one that im trying to upgrade to is 411 too :(
