#1 [REQUEST] Clevo NH58DEQ Bios Unlock/Modding by RecS 08.06.2021 16:35

Hello everyone, I've been trying to unlock my Clevo NH58DEQ laptop (Turkish reseller brand: Monster/Model:A5 v16.6.5) but haven't reached what I want yet. I use Insyde H2Ouve to enable ''BIOS Insde Full show'' option but this option is not visible on my bios. I tried to find it by ctrl+f using on setup.txt file but there is not such an option. I mean, The option that makes bios options visible is also invisible xd I hope you can help me :')

My Bios File's link is attached.

Variable 13B5. Even tho, if you just change it to "show" your bios won't be fully unlocked.

I didn't understand what you mean sir. I am a newbie. Can you elaborate it ? What do I need to do now ? what is the thing like code you mentioned ? What should I do using it ? Thank you so much.

What do I need to do now ?
Use this to execute next command: "setup_var 0x13B5 0x1". This is how you enable BIOS Insyde Full show.
If it's not very clear, then I can make a mod of your BIOS so that it can be installed from OS Windows instead.

Which platform am I supposed to be using to enter that code ? Windows ? EFI shell ? and is there a chance of bricking my device even if I do everything correctly ? And Where and how did you get that

txt file that you found variable id in

As you said, Can you make a mod of my bios so I can install it through insyde fft ? and while doing that can you make a step by step instruction so people like me know what they should do. Thank you so much for your effort.

I got an error :(

@RecS- you added the word Setup and that's what caused grub to error. Type exactly "setup_var 0x13B5 0x1" without the parentheses

This is not what caused the error. @RecS did everything right. But GRUB doesn't seem to handle hex values ​​higher than two ordinal.

And Where and how did you get that txt file that you found variable id in
I used another tool (IFR Extractor) on the setup module to get a long list of BIOS settings from where the presented piece of text was taken.

Not sure about installing the mod through FFT. It must only be flashing the Secure BIOS. It is natural that after modifying the BIOS file, the signature becomes invalid and you need to re-sign it. I don't want to deal with this because I just tried to sign, but something didn't work: either the tool is out of date or the installed WSDK is corrupted.
Typically, Intel FPT is used to modify Secure BIOS. Run it and upload the result file here.

I hope we can fix this issue. thank you so much in advance. Here are the Results

Here's your bios mod, @RecS . Install it by running "FLASH.bat". Load bios setup defaults, and after that "Setup Menu Insyde Full Show" will be set to "Show".

#13 RE: [REQUEST] Clevo NH58DEQ Bios Unlock/Modding by RecS 10.06.2021 09:23

Sir I run the bat file as Adminstrator but it doesn't work. I checked it on H2OUVE and it looks like it will work because the menus are visible. thank you so much. Only one step left. Flashing. But as you see I cannot flash and it gives an error (189: file does not exist). I think that's because the bios file is in .703 format instead of .bin but I didn't want to change and try anything before asking you not to have headache with a bricked bios .

Common issue. Try downloading again.

Ok I'll do it when I am at home. By the way could you please share the instructions of that modding please ? Or another bios modding topic where the same methot is used. If a new version of the bios is released. I want to deal with it by myself. Thabky you thousand times again
