So has there been any progress on an official BIOS fix? I've modified the BIOS in all of my desktops and old laptop to varying degrees, so I'm not entirely paranoid about possibly running a modified BIOS in my G74, but I would still very much prefer an official update. I realize there is the software based workaround, but being required to do it just so the computer works properly annoys the everliving heck out of me. And it is frustrating, especially considering the rather high regard in which I hold ASUS products, as evidenced by the large pile of ASUS labeled boxes I have lying about.
Please don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore my G74 to no end. The only complaint I honestly have is about the lack of hardware RAID functionality. I also wish it had an optical output, but that's not really a complaint, just a personal preference kind of thing. Outside of that, it has absolutely everything I could wish for in a gaming notebook, and I'm more than happy to recommend it to others.
But any kind of update in regards to how things are progressing would be appreciated to no end.
