After completed, click 'Exit'.
Save a copy of the backup to a safe place, just in case.

Click File -> Open, then select the backup saved on step 4. (afuwin.rom or however you named it)
Just change Access/Use from 'Default' to 'USER' to every menu/sub-menu/option you want to unlock.
After you changed everything you want to unlock, click on the 'Save' button (overwrite the current, don't use save as).

Open ChangeLogo.exe, click on 'Load Image'.

Click 'Save Logo'.
Now edit it as you wish with mspaint, gimp etc.. but preserve the dimensions and format.
To change it, click 'Browse' -> Select the edited logo, then click on 'Replace Logo' (it will say something like: JPEG not supported, do you want to continue?).

Select your USB drive under Device.
Select FreeDOS under Boot selection.
Select MBR under Partition scheme.
Select FAT32 under File system.

Click Start and wait until it finishes.
If everything goes well, you should see a message saying "Flash update completed".

You should see the hidden BIOS features unlocked and accessible. Enjoy!
