Usually, asus mboards use a generic base board ID on the PCB…its not to trust all the info by software. Flashed yesterday a client computer that was a F540NA and its a X540 base bios file Ex: VivoBook F540 A540 X540 r ALL base board X540 So indeed ur base board can be the same as both models share the same bios version AS308, even if the name of the download file has VEAS308 ou VDAS308.
@jen11 yeah, but in my backdoor laptop it’s says GL553VD. here i can explain why i"m pretty sure my laptop is GL553VD because this is the real information provided on official website asus that explained :
- GL553VD come with intel I7-7700HQ with Nvidia gtx 1050 (non ti) - While the GL553VE come with I7-7700HQ with Nvidia gtx 1050 Ti
You can look for my backdoor type in the below its says GL553VD-FY280 (without T) While the GL553VE-FY280T
And a postscript that i have same problem but with different type model and he’s from my country too and got done force flashing different model using ch341a cause fault install wrong bios without attention to the real type of the laptops.
@jen11 how to check device id for my nvidia gtx 1050 ? My gpu is running fine for gaming and using cinebench or furmark.
@MeatWar yeah! Why i’m pretty sure if my laptops its GL553VD is the vga is gtx 1050 (non ti) and the full type is GL553VD-FY280 (without T) And I"m sure that GL553VE and GL553VD is the same GL553 series on base boards.
@jen11 on yesterday i’m done flashing my GL553VE AS308 to GL553VD AS308 using AFUWIN but after done flashing i"m checking my bios type on dxdiag, msinfo32 and hwinfo64 they all says has changed from GL553VE to GL553VD. BUT, when i"m checking on device manager on tab System Firmware he has 2 Device with version 308. (The true is 1 device on System Firmware aka BIOS itself while i’m reverted to GL553VE AS308) and when i"m update bios or downgrade bios ONLY VERSION GL553VE using WinFlash update or downgrade (add “nodate” parameter) it’s succesfully and continue EZ flash 3 loading on UEFI.
While i’m trying flashing using WinFlash on Bios GL553VD AS308, The WinFlash software he said : “Bios is not Valid” not work. If using “nodate” paramater he said “Your Bios version is Older” i’m looking on WinFlash menu is showing same version 308 on Current bios and version 308 to be installed bios and he said that bios is older even though the bios version is the same.
@jen11 about bios utility i dont notice any update bios.
I dont notice option to update my bios automatically. And thank you for identifying my real gpu hardware id is the real gtx1050. And now in the morning i’m has been ordered the ch341a+SOIC8 test clip for flashing my bios since it’s not applied for flashing bios in fpt, or maybe i’m still confusing to installing bios using fpt and if you prefer me to instal my bios using fpt, please give me the detail guide how to force flash different bios on fpt and modified it.
@jen11 thank you for the guide. But first can you give me guide how to backup my NVRAM, UUID, LAN MAC ? I’m looking my friend’s conversation on bios mod forum with Lost_N_BIOS He’s give disclaimer and said : “this firmware may loose your UUID or serial and LAN MAC.” If you can help me how to backup it?
And please give me long time to start conversation now in here is 11:13 PM i hope can faster you replied.
@setya87 The bios dump you saved in post #6 contain everything, just save it in a safe place (external usb drive)
these information will be erased when flashing stock bios file using intel flash utility, lost bios was right about it, good thing you mentioned it, but if you flash the dump file they will be restored
as long as you have the dump file you are safe, and if you post it here I can help you write these information to the stock bios file
Update 1 : result on IFR showing these GUID for my bios dump using Intel csme system tools v11 r37. But, the subGUID is not detected for my bios dump. Is the subGUID important ? Or im continue and ignore it about the subGUID?
@HP_ThinksUrDumb thanks for the information, but dont know how to backup current table’s on ASUS DMI configuration utility. And give me linked guide how to do it.
UPDATE 2 : VarOffset 0x8AA Default Value 0x0 mean my bios Capsule is DISABLE LOCK ?
UPDATE 3 : amisetupwriter 0x8AA 0x0 and the result like this:
Here’s my VBIOS version is 1049 is correct with my gtx1050 (non Ti) gpu ? The VBIOS version comeback after flashing from current bios GL553VE AS307 to latest GL553VE AS308 via Ezflash 3 and my VBIOS come back! Before the status is N/A (flashing 3 or 4 times) and now VBIOS is back!
Last report and not rush to flash my bios now just waiting BIOS modding guru to be helped my problem. This is the STOCK of GL553VD AS308 last check has 0x0 or BIOS lock disable and i dont know how the next step to go.
on a USB drive, make a folder EFI and sub-folder inside it named Boot and then copy the efi file as BOOTX64.EFI and unlock your bios (you may have to disable secure boot) (btw I never used that utility I used another one but it is more complicated for you) or simply just extract Boot_Shell_AmiSetupWriter.rar into the root fodler of the USB flash and boot using it,
I made a new bios for you, I didn’t mode or update any module, or the microcode, it is up to you if you want to I can do it for you.
The bios I am uploading has the same EC first 128KB so there is no risk for bricking the motherboard, however , I will recommend that you do it at your own risk and remember there is always a chance to do things wrong.
again, don’t do anything your are not sure of, post anything you are not sure of, to wait is better than bricking your motherboard
