I am a linux user encountering a grub installation problem of Grub in mbr by a locked bios on a Mitac 8060b motherboard (Medion 41310).
The bios lock deny mbr rewriting on the mbr, I have the latest version from Medion website and I am looking for how to come, if possible, in advanced bios features to disable that what seems to be a virus protection because it seems to be a "limited" edition.

My problem is that I do not know if extended menu exists on this bios (item security) or if I need a "full" version if avalable somewhere on earth.

Or does it exists some tools to allows this walkaround, I tried Tweakbios, but Intel i855 chipsets are not supported and I cannot find where to download the BNOBTC V5 Toolkit (not sure Insyde bios supported by the kit).

Thanks for your help because I am testing this hardware to become a Linux certified label that it cannot have for this time.
