Lenovo Z710, Z510 unlocked BIOS menu / wlan whitelist mod / vbios mod

Recommended Posts

Is there somewhere an option in the BIOS to change that 85 degree throttle limit of the CPU in the z710? Lenovo set it to the lowest possible value when Intel actually allows up to 100 degrees.

Hi!

Search in new unlocked menu settings named as TCC activation or same, if you find it, then post screenshot.

There is nothing named "TCC". What I tried is in the picture. But these settings seem to have no effect at all. Still 85 degree limit.

The BD PROCHOT setting on the CPU thermal page has no effect either.

Hey there! I'm so glad to find this forum! I'm happy there's someone like you out there helping frustrated lenovo laptop owners. Can I have my bios unlocked too please? I have a Lenovo z710 with BIOS version 7FCN96WW. I'm sending you the results along with the BIOS setup file I used to upgrade to... Please unlock everything you can. I want to be able to control fan speed and raise the thermal throttle limit... Thanks in advance.

If you find a way to change the throttle limit, tell us. I tried many settings, but my Z710 keeps throttling at 85 degrees.

SecurAble utility show that virtualization already enabled.

Are you sure that Intel (VMX) Virtualization Technology disabled in bios?

If you sure, then 

Download this tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...RtQXM/view
Extract the archive H2OUVE.rar directly on the Desktop and copy the H2OUVE folder directly on the disk C:\

Then run the Command prompt as Administrator and execute these commands:

cd  \

 

cd  H2OUVE

 

H2OUVE.exe   -gv   vars.txt


After each command press the Enter button.

After that, you'll have the file "vars.txt" in H2OUVE folder.
Post here this file "vars.txt" or upload it to any fileserver and  send me the link.

Download and extract archive vars_mod.rar

Then you need to put the vars_mod.txt  file in the folder with the H2OUVE.exe file and execute the following command in an Administrative Command Prompt in that folder: 
 
H2OUVE.exe  -sv  vars_mod.txt
 
H2OUVE will update the NVRAM area of the BIOS and after a reboot the new setting should be active.
This will only enable Intel (VMX) Virtualization Technology and not mess with any of the other settings of your BIOS.
In case you want to revert to default, you can go back to default with the following command:
 
H2OUVE.exe  -sv  vars.txt

Hello everyone :) Could I also get a whitelist-free BIOS for Z510?

If it is OK I have one question before I post dump files. In general, sometimes it is recommended to have the latest BIOS version installed. But sometimes latest versions are better to be avoided, as they are harder to work with, use additional protection, or sometimes introduce some kinds of problems. My current version is 8DCN37WW, and the latest version is 8DCN40WW.

 

The question is - is it OK to upgrade, then dump files and modify the latest BIOS (v40), or is it better to keep my current version (v37), dump it and modify it? Are there any good reasons not to upgrade to the latest version before modding?

 

Thanks :)

Hi!

In your case bios version doesn't matter for unlock. You can update your bios to any new version from Lenovo website and then we can unlock it.

Thank You for the mod and very detailed instructions. Flashing was successful, new BIOS options appeared. Didn't check new wireless card yet, but I will in the next few days, when I get it.

 

Once again - big thanks.

      Hi folks,
        Greetings from Brazil!  Not sure I'm posting in the right place, but I have a question:  how do I find out the brand and model of my BIOS chip without having to open my laptop?  I can't find this information anywhere.  Been searching for days... I have a Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK 80RS (motherboard Paris 5A8).  Thanks a lot for your time and help! I really appreciate it!   Best regards,   JC.

      Hello guys,
      I have a GT72VR 6RE with G-sync MSI Laptop. Sadly the GPU is partially dead (artefacts all over the screen, crashes, windows detecting a damaged hardware etc...).

      So I bought an other GTX1070 MXM on ebay, which was used in a Vortex G65 6RE before.
      Sadly, when I plug the new GPU in the laptop, the laptop screen stays completly off, but i can use the HDMI port. So i though that I would just have to flash the vbios to the one I was using on the GPU that died, but I couldn't because of a mismatch betwen the PCI Device ID.
      The new GPU ID is : 10DE 1BA1 - 1462 11AF and the previous GPU ID was :10DE 1BE1 - 1462 11AF
      Pretty close right? but the A1 and E1 variation are fcking everything up. I've read that 1BA1 is for non G-sync and 1BE1 is for G-sync. I've also read that the G-sync variation is not part of the card but is an external part no on the GPU board.

      So now I'm wondering what can I do : is there a way to force the vbios flash or to change the PCI ID ? I really need some help here. I'm no expert and I've try as much as I could. Maybe I need to do some vbios editing but I don't really know how to do it and what to do exactly to make this work.

      Thank you very much for your help guys

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad X250, X260.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, then you can post your request in this thread.
      Important!
      For creating your personal bios dump and to flash your bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!
       
      Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.
       
       

      CH341A programmer:
      https://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-Programmer-CH341A-Series-Burner-Chip-24-EEPROM-BIOS-Writer-25-SPI-Flash-AU/153117073868?epid=577511738&hash=item23a67d21cc:g:XKEAAOSw5UdbW-iL

      How to use it:
       
      Also, you can search on YouTube a lot of guide for CH341a.
       
      Note: 
      Each bios mod prepare personally and based on your personal bios dump which contain your personal data like Serial numbers, UUID, Service TAG, MAC addresses, Windows keys, NVRAM settings, etc.
      For creating your personal bios dump and to flash bios mod, you need use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!
      Just dump your Bios (from your laptop) using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.
