Lenovo Y500 Bios Whitelist Error

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I've been following svl7's guide to removing the whitelist from my y500, but I ran into Error 28:

Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash access.

Please contact the target system BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.


I saw that svl7 solved it for Frost-dc, but they neither of them ever posted the solution. I tried PM'ing him, but he cannot receive messages. 


Can anyone help me out help me and/or give me the solution? The sleep hack also doesn't work for me.
