Altough Alienware doesn't provide BIOSes for everyone, there's a method to get them.

First, you should google to know which is the latest bios version. (Yes, this is a lil' research, but worth it)

Apply the following syntax:

http://aliendl.alienware.com/Mobile/[model]/BIOS/[Model]_Bios[version].zip

Working examples:

http://aliendl.alienware.com/Mobile/m5750/...0_Bios1.19W.zip

http://aliendl.alienware.com/Mobile/m5750/..._BIOS_1.15W.zip

http://aliendl.alienware.com/Mobile/m5550/..._BIOS_2.07w.zip

(notice: the m5790 1.19W is

And an off-topic remark: m5550 is based on Uniwill P53, m57x0 on P72, and the Uniwill P53/P72 generally shares the same bios code, so they're interchangeable. (A living example: I'm using the m5790 1.19W on my Amilo Pi 1536)

P53 based notebooks are (known by me so far):

FuSi Amilo Pi 1536/1556

Alienware Area-51 m5550

Vega P53

Rock Pegasus P660/665

P72 based:

FuSi Amilo Xi 1526/1554

Alienware Area-51 m5750/m5790

Important notice: Remove any BIOS passwords before upgrading and rebranding, or else you may get locked out from your own notebook.

Hi Grisa

(Sorry for my approximative english)

I'm coming here hoping that you may have some advices or solutions for my problem :

I was considering an upgrade for my Amilo Xi1547 and I bought 2x2Go of ram last year, but I discovered that the Fujitsu Bioses only support 2.5Go. I was searching on the net over one year before I've found a trick with the AlienWare w5790 bios : A guy, on the fujitsu forum, wich was waiting like me for 4Go support from Fujitsu, gave the trick with the AW m5790 bios flash and I was very happy to discover this solution.

So I flashed my amilo with the m5790 bios. Everything runs fine during the flash and the laptop reboot normaly with the alienware logo on the boot page, but after that, i discover a message asking me a password to acceding the bios AND for booting normally withaout bios access. In fact, I haven't seen your message (and especially the important notice in the end) before and I let a password on the bios acces. I've tried to enter my password again and again, believing a bad joke and considering easy to recall parameter in bios or find something on the web for reseting the Bios but after 2 weeks, i've found nothing to disable this 2 fu... passwords (one for the bios wich's different from mine, and one for booting).

I've called Fujitsu's hotline with my bill to ensure that my laptop was clear, without telling them about the alienware bios, but the guy said to me that it was impossible to clear the password and the only solution was to change the mainboard or finding an illegal software to break it ( I've tried cmospwd 5.0, but it's impossible because my laptop don't boot on anything : floppy, CD, disk or whatelse)... After that I found on internet a guy with an Amilo Pi 1536 who had, one day without explanation, a password on the boot (it seems to be a very rare bug). He called FSC hotline but they told him the same bul... like me, until he wrote to FSC mediation service. He was recalled by an FSC technical service to bring his laptop for repairing and the technician explain him that there is a secret combination of keys during the boot to clear the password. So I don't know what I can do today. I can't bring my amilo to the FSC helpdesk with the alienWare logo on the boot, so I come to ask you if you may have any solution. To be honest, I don't know if there is a solution but as you give the notice, i hope that you may know something about leaving a password during a flash...

many many thanks in advance

Hi there,

Is here something new about the Password Problem on Xi1546 with the Alienware m5790 1.19W Bios?

Because I want to flash the Alienware Bios on my Amilo, because I want to upgrade my RAM up to 4GB.

Is there a newer Bios as the 1.19W?

MfG

Hello,

Sorry for my english...i'm french.

I installed the vesion 1.19 on my amilo xi1546,without removing the password in bios and after it the computer asked for a password.

The only way i found to remove it is to send the computer to Fufitsu siemens and for 120? they remove the password.

Now i've my computer and i would like to know if someone tried to install the bios on xi1546 and if it work when there is no password in bios.

Thanks

Always remove any passwords in BIOS!

to install BIOS 1.19W burn iso disk image to disk then place disk in drive, restart
