HP VICTUS 16-e0000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I have an HP Victus 16-e0xxx and was wondering how to unlock the advanced option? I've been trying so many hotkeys to unlock it, but none of them were the correct one. do I need to downgrade to F.09 Rev.A? because I think I have F.11 right now

Sorry, but apart from business notebooks and some high-end gaming PCs, accessing Advanced BIOS option on HP PCs is not possible.

Some OEMs lock out the advanced BIOS options to prevent customers from making changes to options that can destabilize or otherwise damage the PC -- and then send it back for repair under warranty claiming they did nothing to it.

I know only SOME of the advanced options are risky, but it's simpler to disable access to ALL advanced options than to allow/disallow on an individual option basis.

That's the course of action that HP has chosen. No one from here is going to provide you any means of getting around that.

Yeah, I know that -- but either the Advanced options are available or they are not.  IF they are not on yours, there is nothing you can do to change that.
