Unlocking BIOS advanced settings

HP Pavilion g6-2230ew Notebook
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Dear community,

 

I've updated my BIOS recently(current version I have is >> Insyde F.26, 2014-06-03 << ), but I still dont have the advanced settings there available. What I am looking for is to unlock them, just like it's done on the image below:

 


 

Currently my BIOS just don't have this advanced settings tab. Before experimenting on my own I prefer to ask here on forum, is there any safe way to unlock these settings?

There is not a way for the BIOS to be unlocked.  If you don't currently have an option/feature then it is not available for changed.  HP ships most/all their PCs with limited BIOS options.

Are you sure that it's impossible, not just locked/hidden? I am really dissapointed to hear that. In this case, could you guide me how to install BIOS with the advanced settings already available?

It is locked. Only if one used a modded BIOS will those feature be unlock then can you access them but even this is USE at your Own RISK. And bricking can happen as well doing this.
