hehe. i am hesitant.

is it much easier to mod the bios when lenovo releases an actual bios rom, instead of messing with bios dumps

I agree.. me too.. flashing a dump from an universal bios dump as a test make me nervous. I got the platform.ini working for flashing..

and made a real InsydeFlash backup bios but didn't flash..

but still it's a Y480 flashing tools as no original flashing tools has been released for the Y580 yet...

just evaluating that bricking may bring downtime and Headache .. Hey svl7, thanks.. any good and proven recovery method available?

OP would you try??

not worth the risk, using a y480 tool to flash a y580. they have different bios.

for the Y570, lenovo eventually released updated bios roms that you could play with. I would just wait until lenovo releases a new y580 bios.

I have already called lenovo tech support requesting certain bios features, like automatic external display when closing laptop lid.

Maybe they might release a new bios rom with those options available.

The Insyde USB recovery method should work, you can also try to flash the file with this method.

Hate to say it, but keep on dreaming.

I thought the Phoenix Crisis method is used on Lenovo???

Nope, this model uses an Insyde UEFI, so not Phoenix Crisis stuff ;)

I have an error when flashing "the version of rom file isn't newer than bios version" and InsydeFlash.exe quit.....

I bet some tweaking has to be done to the "platform.ini" to remove previous bios version check

i heard that y580's vbios is tied with this. would that mean there could be custom vbios clocks for y580 as well?

Set the [bios_Version_Check] flag to 0 and try again.

It is, yes, that would be possible.

I just got it figured out:

at the top of the "platform.ini" file

change this: SwitchString=ACEN DCEN CPVER:[1] FHRST RESSEN

to this : SwitchString=ACEN DCEN CPVER:[1] FHRST RESSDIS

that will enable bios regression..

OK guys I flashed the mod ... and it's SUCCESS I will upload pic later, as I don't have the right yet..

Here is the Bios PIC here

That's weird... or am I too tired and missing something? I mean RESSEN is already there and means 'regression enable', right?

Anyway, thanks for testing and for the first pics!!

You welcome.. Thanks for you to make this happening.

maybe they mean "regression enable" as if yes then no go.. contradiction very yes.

I haven't play much with settings yet.

Don't know, there's no detailed changelog available as far as I know, all it says is "Updated Information: Latest Version BIOS fixed the Windows Memory Diagnostic Hangs up at 99% Issue "

Yeah... test it and you'll see whether it has been fixed or not.
