Here is a list of all of the Alienware unlocked BIOS' for laptops that I had saved. All credit goes to their original owners. Flash at your own risk. 

Do NOT post these links elsewhere. If you want to share this publicly, upload the file yourself to your preferred sharing site. I'm missing AW14 A09 unlocked BIOS so if you have it let me know. Otherwise I believe I got the major ones here.

I think A17+ is the latest one and should work well.

The Alienware m17xr4 which bios is better, A11 unlocked or A15 unlocked? I have A10 installed now but not sure what the difference of the 2 unlocked would provide. I am having no problems and the m17xr4 is running great. But I do have a problem with "If it aint broke dont fix it" I tend to fix it anyway, its fun fixing it after I broke it HA HA HA!

Does anyone know where I can find info on the settings in these unlocked bios and what each setting does,like PCI Express Configuration/ DMI Extended Synch Control/ Disable or Enable or setting the maximum PCI-Express Speed? Or maybe what gen x, Gen 1, or Gen 2 or 3 is? Can any of these settings or others dictate what GPU is usable in the m18xr2 or m17xr4 or any Alienware

Added M17xR2 A10 V1F unlocked bios. 

 

I don't think M15x unlocked bios adds anything useful but if someone wants to attach it, I can re-upload it to google drive and add to first post.

I've gone ahead and updated the A13 unlocked bios file to include all needed files for flashing. 

 

As a reminder this bios requires a bootable dos usb. 

 

A bootable dos usb can be created for free using rufus (choose freedos) when formatting usb. Then drag all files from the unlocked folder to the root directory of the usb. 

 

Boot with legacy option rom enabled, select the usb and once dos boots, type in: flash.bat 

 

Before flashing a unlocked bios, you must flash the standard version of that bios from dell's website since a lot of these unlocked bios' only have the bios portion and not the ME. 

 

Example:

 

M14xR2 is currently on A03 stock

First flash A13 standard from dell support website

Then flash A13 unlocked using dos method
