Hi Klem,

I have a Lenovo x250 - do you also help there?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/d2h3onht6xisgji/moddedx250bios.bin?dl=0

 

I modded the bios myself to enable a screen whitelist. But now it beeps in goups of five two times. I think I need to rehash the BIOS, but can't find out how. Can you help here or explain how I could do that? Also, the advanced menu would be a nice thing, I also haven't found how I could do that.

 

Cheers

Hi!

2x5 beeps after install any modified bios, it's normal for this laptop model, because this laptop model have special TPM/Security chip, every time when laptop start, this chip will check special RSA signature.
When the BIOS integrity test fails, a sequence of 5 whistles is issued twice at boot.
After modifying to remove whitelist (enable unauthorized WI-FI cards), enable advanced menu, etc. the BIOS can't pass the integrity test (because bios was modified), and therefore sequence of 5 whistles is issued twice at boot.

In this case, I know only this way:

Disable TPM/Security chip (in bios setup menu) before and after flashing.

Pull out CMOS battery and wait 5-10 min to reset NVRAM data.

Set Intel AMT module (in bios setup menu) to Disabled.

Finally! 

I took off cmos battery (and all other including power cord) for 20 minutes.

putted it back - got no luck 5 beeps again.

Assembled all back.

Started using OS X Mojave.

and... after some reboots beeps are gone!! Thank you so much! u made my day!

btw don`t you know is there any way to make DW1650 BCM94352Z work in windows 10? it does not find any netwroks in lenovo x240 laptop.

(this adapter works with OSX at the same laptop) I found the solution for Linux.. but not for Windows here - https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307738-bcm94352-working-in-osx-but-not-in-windowsoo/?page=2

 

Best regards!

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad T440p / T440s / T540p.
      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 bios backup and to flash 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.
