See edit above. You're welcome!
On storage, you should be able to install any size drive you want, where do you see such things saying HDD/SSD size is limited?

@Lost_N_BIOS

I had success in all the steps you told me to do, attached a zip with a photo of the first command you asked for and the biosreg.bin

Zitat

Good to see, unlocked FD was left in place by stock reflash!
So, what about step #2 of the FPT Spoiler?

Unless there is some known issue with this model and larger drives, you should be able to install any size drive you want.
Whatever you saw mentioned was probably incorrect, or possibly some issue with an early BIOS maybe, or possibly they were confused by it only being offered in sale configurations with SSD up to 512GB or something.

Reboot and try again. If you know how to make DOS Bootable USB, and it says same after reboot, make DOS bootable USB and then copy all contents of FPT DOS folder to root of USB and boot to DOS and try there instead.

@Lost_N_BIOS

Try all the steps again or just step 2?

See edit above. Only try step #2 again, you already have biosreg.bin so no need to re-create. If you do the DOS way, copy your BIOSreg.bin to root of USB too, so you don't have to do step #1 again.

#23 RE: Sony Vaio Pro 13 - SVP1321C5E bios issues by muteen 11.05.2020 10:46

@Lost_N_BIOS

Tried step 2 again after reboot and got this error ive attached.

Should i try the DOS bootable usb method?

Now, that's more like it! Thanks, this is normal error, please wait for edit here

* edit - I made a guide for this, you can start at step #6 because I've done 1-5 for you
[GUIDE] Grub Fix Intel FPT Error 280 or 368 - BIOS Lock Asus/Other Mod BIOS Flash

Since BIOS page with launch to shell is hidden from you, you will need to use this method to get to grub - [Help needed] Hidden Advanced menu Bios HP Z1 J52_0274.BIN (2)
Follow that link, and then at that post, follow the other link and do ONLY steps 1-2, then come back and do everything shown at the link above, just like the image shows.

SMI Lock variable to disable >> 0x91
BIOS Lock variable to disable >> 0x92

So, at grub prompt you will type the following, one at a time, enter between each, case sensitive.
setup_var 0x91 0x0
setup_var 0x92 0x0


Once that is done, reboot to windows and try FPT step #2 again, it should succeed

If all this is too much hassle for you, we can carry on with programmer if you want.
OR!! I can make you new mod BIOS to program in once more, with all this already disabled, then you can program that in and test to confirm step #2 no error, then we can carry on with FPT and you can put programmer away
Let me know what you want to do.

#25 RE: Sony Vaio Pro 13 - SVP1321C5E bios issues by muteen 11.05.2020 11:57

@Lost_N_BIOS

Im gonna give the method youve outlined a go and see if it works
----------------

@Lost_N_BIOS

My usb drive seems to be write protected for some reason, i dont know what to do next.

Edit: ive tried a few other usb drives and they all say the same.

This is due to Win10, and or USB3 (or both). I recently noticed the same on my new setup. Use older system, something with Xp-Win7 and you'll have no issues

#27 RE: Sony Vaio Pro 13 - SVP1321C5E bios issues by muteen 12.05.2020 19:12

@Lost_N_BIOS

Having a hard time getting the grub to work :(

@muteen - Why, what's the issue etc?

Wipe USB, start over. Go to this post, do 1-2 ONLY <Request> Flagship X470 Gaming 7 Wifi Motherboard BIOS Fix
Then go here, and do everything mentioned after "Edit" and make sure your USB matches what's shown in the image - [Help needed] Hidden Advanced menu Bios HP Z1 J52_0274.BIN (2)

Then from BIOS choose to boot directly to USB if you can, if not, move your USB to first in list at Boot Device Priority, or at startup hit whatever hotkey is your "Boot Menu" key and then choose USB
As mentioned, we can carry on with programmer if this keeps giving you hassles, it's not ideal but if we have to - we have to.

I can make this easier for you on next edit, swapping exit page for Save & Exit page, then you will be able to just follow the main guide method from post #24 directly from and wont have to do all the above work around stuff for when you don't have exit to shell on BIOS exit page.

@Lost_N_BIOS

when i try flashing the usb with the hp tool, i dont see any files in the usb afterwards. ( is that normal? )

i carry on with making the files just like the image and i boot into bios, change my boot options to boot from the usb and reboot.

im then greeted with a blank black screen. :(

Yes, this is normal, if you do not have "Show hidden files and folders" checked in folder options, once you enable that you will see 2-3 files.
Sounds like you may need to set BIOS to UEFI Mode still, or disabled that mode if already set, I can't remember which way is required for that or if it matters.

If you want, send me new dump from programmer and I will do as mentioned, then you can do this in a much easier fashion following the main guide directly.
