Hi everyone!

 

I just tried to do this on my Latitude E7250, with BIOS version A20 and I think that I might have messed up somewhere.

 

I followed the instructions and did the search for my DVMT and I found the following:

I choose the first value of 0x15B and ran the command. This was my output:

 

grub> setup_var 0x15B 0x3

Looking for Setup variable...

var name: Setup, var size: 12, var guid: ec87d643-eba4-4bb5 - a1-e5-3f-3e-36-b2-0d-a9

 

--> GUID does not match expected GUID, taking it nevertheless

expected a different size of the Setup variable (got 2638 (0xa4e) bytes). Continue with care...

successfully obtained "Setup" variable from VSS  (got 2638 (0xa4e) bytes).

offset 0x15B is: 0x01

setting offset 0x15b to 0x03

 

Is everything OK or do I have to dig out my SOC8 clip and programmer? ☹️ I'm attaching my extracted file.

 

Thanks!
