Also, you did mention that you studied the bios patching guide, but to show you just how easy it actually is: You put the grub shell (the file is named bootx64.efi) in the EFI partition of a USB key (/efi/boot/). You then boot from that USB key in the bios.
In the case of our motherboard:
Bios F5 you'd type:
setup_var_3 0x493 0x00 <enter>
setup_var_3 0x4ef 0x00 <enter>
then just restart your machine and your CFG Lock is disabled
Fantastic. Thanks. I've been reading so many posts over the past few days that I realise now that I was probably overthinking it.
Assuming BIOS F22g, I have seen reference to:
setup_var 0x4EF 0x00 <enter>
setup_var_3 0x4EF 0x00 <enter>
