Lenovo Y580 / Y480 'unlocked' BIOS versions

Recommended Posts

then update your firmware... Sold State Drive (SSD) Support

select on this page your product, the ''Crucial m4 mSATA SSD''

then scroll down to ''Firmware Update 07MH''

download the firmware ''Manual Boot File for Windows and Mac''

under the download button is a simple installation guide, step by step for updating the mSATA SSD in DOS.

*the update should also works if the BIOS doesn't recognise the ssd.

I already tried it when I read your first message but the DOS utility is unable to detect the SSD ...

I tried disabling the UEFI and using the SATA Compatibility mode but it's still not working ...

Then there are three options in the Boot Manager: 1. My hard drive, 2. EFI network 0 for IPv4, and 3. EFI network 0 for IPv6. I don't know what options 2 and 3 are, so I chose my HD and then the computer boots as it normally would.

did you made your USB drive bootable?

Yes, prepared it so that it's DOS-bootable exactly as described in the first post

-----------Edit----------------

Seeing En-TACT's success on page 37, I also tried making a different USB drive DOS-bootable, but I still get the same "System doesn't have any USB boot option" message

hm :disturbed:

some people had also this problem: Y580 msata problem - Lenovo Community

-> try a reset like here Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

I'm sorry, please wait about the opinion of an expert like @svl7 !

I decided to let the computer without the battery for 10min : the m4 was detected when I booted in the BIOS so I was able to perform the firmware update.

Now it's working flawlessly :encouragement:

But I really don't understand what happened ... :suspicion:

Thank you for your help !

Update :

I tried to flash the unlocked BIOS but unfortunately, as I already have the stock v2.07, the InsydeFlash utility keeps telling me that the BIOS i'm trying to flash is not a newer version ...

:blue:

Do you know if I can do something ?

yeah with the new firmware it's a great SSD!! :)

Do you know if I can do something ?

yes, you have to change a parameter in the ''platform.ini''... sorry, can't remember wich it was..

so just use my one (i already changed it).. and replace it before running the ''InsydeFlash.exe''

Hi! I'm new here sry for my bad english

I bought an used y580 after Lenovo warranty repair (fan + keyboard).

I did get it for 660$ included shipping.

The config. was i5-3210M 4GB(one DIMM), 1TB HDD, GTX660M, 15,6" Full HD, NO OS preinstalled.

Firts upgraded to 8GB ram

Second i have upgraded the cpu to i7-3610QM

then installed the modded bios to get a better OC of the GPU.

4GB was 15$

i7-3610QM was 92$, sold the old i5-3210M dor 83$

I'm getting blue screens with no particular message in Battlefield 3..

I tried stock clocks 835/2500 still blue screens..

I want to install the old original BIOS.

I can't revert to original 2.07 bios... it says that my modded is newer..

Where the hell did you managed to get i7-3610QM for 92$ ? :D

Anyway, to flash older bios edit platform.ini at the third line and change RESSEN at the end for RESSDIS.

As you could find it here

I have a Win7 Y580 and the flash to svl7's BIOS 2.07 was completely painless and I quickly upgrade to an Intel 6300 WiFi

(I actually ordered a 6205, but they sent me a 6300 in package labeled 6205)

HOWEVER, the graphics card's overclock doesn't seem to be working.

BIOS settings reset to default.

660m 2GB, with the latest 314.22 drivers

(the only option in the Nvidia control panel is "3D Settings")

post-7929-14494994882369_thumb.png

GPU-Z's "Graphics card" tab says GPU: 1000 MHz and Memory: 1250 MHz

GPU-Z's "Sensors" tab only shows GPU: 885 MHz and Memory: 1249 MHz

GPU-Shark says 885 MHz for the GPU and 2499 MHz for the Memory

MSI Kombustor & Furmark agree with GPU-Shark

and they both display "GPU Throttling: -480 MHz"

jdeMTteHFThUk_xs.png

MSI Afterburner has no effect on the GPU or Memory settings.

Any thoughts on why I'm throttled at a max GPU clock of 885 MHz and a max temp of 63 degrees?

Edit: I'd be happy to provide more information as necessary.

Are you using the Lenovo Dynamic Graphics power profile?

If not, the GPU will not clock to the higher performance profile set by SL7 in the custom video bios.

Don't use Furmark - problem solved.

Hey slv7 would you have any idea why turning on the lenovo dynamic graphics causes my games to freeze about a minute in?

It seems to corrupt something, I hear sound but video is frozen and can't pull up task mgr to close it. When I hit reboot the comp just sits on restarting screen and I have to hold down power to manually shut down, not sure what's wrong :(

That fixed it!

My GPU temps are now peaking at 66 degrees.

Thanks svl7 for your work and thanks ilal2ielli for showing me my error.

/GPU-Shark & MSI Kombuster still think I'm running at a memory clock of 2500+ MHz

As you could find it here

I bought the i7-3610QM on allegro - polish ebay. The CPU has a cracked corner:

Galeria zdj?? aukcji Allegro - Galerie Allegro.pl

But the CPU is working 100% ok, in games like COD 4, Crysis 3 or tests like 3Dmark 11, 06 or Intel Burn Test.

You did not understand me.

I want to flash the original BIOS, while flashing the modded BIOS I did change to RESSDIS (btw. why not correct it and upload it again to techinferno?)

The original BIOS is one FILE and I can't change anythink.. only way is edit thru Notepad++ I think :)

Yes, it is one file, but after executing, it extracts all the files to the temp directory, so you can copy them from there.

Here it is.

I just did this bios unlock so that I could overlock my 660m and I have a couple points and questions to make. I had heard on a few posts here that we should not put our battery on lenovo dynamic graphics otherwise we would not get the 1000mhz and be stuck at 880, but the opposite was true for me, only lenovo dynamic graphics power setting kept my 660m at 1000 and the others I was stuck at 880. Any idea why?

Also, right off the bat I tried to do an overclock while playing bioshock infinite using msi afterburner, I was at a spot in the game where I get 26 fps, so I minimized to msi afterburner and did a core overclock to 1250mhz which increased my fps by 6 frames, and increase my mem speed from 2500 to 2800 only saw an increase in 1 frame. The problem is that when I did this and went back into the game after a couple minutes my computer would lock up, my driver, and the game crashed, and then I went to msi and reset to regular settings and I would be fine.

So I guess my couple questions to this is, is it even worth it to overclock the mem speed if I only see a 1 fps boost? And how come others on here claimed to do 1250 mhz core clock stable while it caused mine to crash after 2 minutes?

Thanks everyone I'm very new to the overclocking business and just trying to learn the ropes, also thanks to op for the bios unlock!

Thx :)

I did it by myself yeasterday. Just changed to RESSDIS or sth like that.

Still getting blue screens..

Is there a problem with the power cord?

When I turn Prime everythink is ok CPU is about 80°C.

But when I turn in the same time Furmark the laptop is restarting immediately.

That is a shame.. I cant play more demanding games like BF3 Far Cry 3 cause its bluescreening

Any IDEAS?

a few posts before you wrote ''The CPU has a cracked corner''

maybe thats the cause, i don't know

or the gpu doesn't gets enough power and needs a bit more voltage... you replaced the i5 with a i7... it seems like the i5-version of the Y580 hasn't got the same power supply.... but i don't know, please take a look at your power supply and tell us the specifications (input, output, whatever)

1. Typically you need to test your overclocks to make sure they are valid before expecting them to run games with stability. Download stress testing programs for the GPU such as Unigine Heaven/Valley or FutureMark 3D Mark to test stability of overclocks on core and memory.

2. Changing clocks while a game is running is not typically advised and can cause crashing issues such as what happened to you.

3. Overclocking is a your mileage may vary type of thing. Not everyone can have the same overclocks even with the same settings and be stable, this is why you test your overclocks to see what works for your system.

hello guys

i think i could mod the vbios with the clocks i want for the 660m

post-10385-14494994883526_thumb.png

but for some reason the core clock stays at the 1 ghz and the voltage stays at stock 1,1 V, although i changed it both in the vbios! post-10385-14494994883747_thumb.png

so i have to add 300mhz with msi afterburner to get 1300mhz core... post-10385-14494994883981_thumb.png

then it runs stable at 1300mhz..

but then i also got this?! post-10385-14494994884176_thumb.png

so svl7, why the voltage and core-clock isn't changeable? what did i wrong?

any ideas?:disturbed:

Hi everyone, this is my first post on the forums so be nice to the new guy?

Brief overview of my problem: I have a brand new y480, I followed the bios flash to a T. Everything worked without error, but when I rebooted I got nothing on the monitor :( so I disassembled. I found what I am pretty sure is the watch battery with a bright blue ring around it, desoldered it, waited for 10 minutes and resoldered it. I figured this would set the bios back to original state. After reassembly I still have no picture. I'm usually pretty good with this stuff but I'm at a loss now. I hope I didn't brick it. Any ideas?

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

-Matthew

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      ok, so, i have a serious problem atm.
      im trying to mod my bios so that i can go past the normal overclocking limit. however, everytime i try to do it, it always says "file size does not match existing bios size!", and it's really annoying, since i had to find everything myself, as no one else online tried this on my specific model, besides me. (which surprises me, really)
      this is the guide im following:
      So this is my detailed description how I managed to mod and overclock my GTX 960M in my Lenovo Y50-70. Please note: it is very dangerous to play with the BIOS, so you need to be very careful! I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage or misuse of the information below! Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK!
       
      -------
       

      Necessary tools:
      A. Fptw64 from Intel (9.5 or above)
      http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75024
      B. PhoenixTool (2.50 or above)
      C. Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker (1.36)
      https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2562/maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker-v1-36/
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to flash Modded BIOS:
      0. Flash the latest (3.03 now) official BIOS
      1. From Windows, start 'cmd' as Administrator and read your your BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -d BIOS.ROM -bios
      2. Reboot, enter your BIOS and check "Enable downgrading BIOS" feature (we need to downgrade first in order to flash the modded BIOS)
      3. From Windows, downgrade to 1.13 (this is necessary because the newer BIOSes have protection against mod-ding)
      4. After reboot & reflash, start Windows, then enter standby, wait a bit, then wake up the machine
      5. Create your modded BIOS, see separate list below
      6. Start 'cmd' as Administrator and write your _modded_ BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -f BIOS_MODDED.ROM -bios
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded BIOS (point 5 above):
      5.1 Start PhoenixTool.exe from Phoenix Tool 2.50 and open your previously saved original BIOS.ROM from point #1 above
       .2 The tool analyses it and shows some messages, click OK
       .3 Now you can find your vBIOS in the "DUMP" subfolder in the folder containing your BIOS.ROM, with the file name:
          BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM
       .4 Create your modded vBIOS, see separate list below -> let's call it 960M_OC.MOD
       .5 Click on "Structure"
       .6 Open "EFI BIOS" tag
       .7 Open second "File Volume {7A9354D9-...}" tag
       .8 DXE Core -> Compressed Section -> Raw section -> File Volume {7A9354D9-...}
       .9 In the very long list, find the following tag (usually displayed at around 80% of the list):
          Freeform {BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597}
          This is the item containing the latest vBIOS
       .10 Open the tag, then "GUID defined section", then click on Raw section. "Internal number" (in the top right corner) should be 1796 for BIOS 3.03.
       .11 Click on "Replace" and select your modded vBIOS (called 960M_OC.MOD above)
       .12 Click exit "Exit" and say Yes to "Save changes?"
       .13 Close the Phoenix Tool; now you should have your BIOS.ROM updated (the original will be saved as BIOS.ROM.OLD for safety)
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded vBIOS (point 5.4 above):
      Use Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker to change BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM;
      5.4.1 Open the ROM
         .2 Change "Boost Clock" on "Common" tab to the new boost-ed maximum value
         .3 On "Boost table" tab, use the slider in the right bottom corner to increase your max boost-ed value to the same number
         .4 On "Boost states" tab, at P00 profile, change the MAX values in the GPC, L2C and XBAR fields to the same max boost-ed value
         .5 Save your modified BIOS and rename it to 960M_OC.MOD
       
      (My boost-ed max value was 1359 MHz. I could then use MSI Afterburner's software tuning -> my 960M could reach 1454 MHz without voltage increase.)
      i know that it's for a different laptop, but its basically the same
      ill provide more info when im home
    • By mclarke2355
      Hello,
       
      I want to share the modded Bios I created for the Acer Aspire E5-572G notebook.
      The official bios 1.09 was used as a base.
      I'm offering three flavours: Microcode 01, Microcode 07 and Microcode 21.
      Microcode 21 is the latest available microcode, this is the Bios you want to use unless you want the special properties of the other microcodes.
      Microcode 07 is the latest microcode that allows using the full turbo clock speed on all cores (using single core turbo with all cores).
      Microcode 01 is the one you should take if you want to try this. I wasn't able to get it to work on mine (i5 4210m, HM86), but your mileage may vary.
      In case you want to always use an older microcode, I'm offering a script for windows that'll keep the OS from using a newer microcode (compatible with Windows Vista to Windows 10). Frequency and other things can be set up with ThrottleStop (use the latest version).
      I've also included an overclocking enabled ME firmware that should (hopefully) allow overclocking on the HM87 equipped notebooks.
      There are two flavours of this notebook available: Ones that use the HM87 chipset and others that use the HM86 chipset. Overclocking is only possible with HM87 as HM86 isn't capable of overclocking (tested it myself).
      Additionally I offer a collection of Bios, EC, ME and FD files of this device, in case anyone wants to experiment with these for a bit (EC Modding, etc.).
      I will update this bios in case there are newer parts available.
       
      Any feedback is welcome!
       

      Features:
      -Advanced Bios Options unlocked (Advanced, Power tabs and additional options in the existing tabs)
      -Nvidia 840M/940M VBioses replaced with adapted 940MX VBios with unlocked TDP Limit, unlocked Boost Table and some OC (1306,5MHz GPU/1070MHz Memory - with general usability in mind) + all voltage sliders unlocked
      -Intel Management Engine: Updated to 9.1.37.1002 + All Locks Unlocked + Overclocking Enabled For HM87 Notebooks + PAVP (Protected Audio/Video Path) Enabled
      -Flash Descriptor unlocked
      -Microcode updated to version 21 (respectively downgraded to 07 and 01)
      -Intel GOP Driver updated to 5.5.1033
      -Intel VGA Bios updated to 1042
      -Intel RST OROMs updated to 15.1.0.2545
      -Realtek Lan OROMs updated to 2.037/2.64
      -Applied a few useful BIOS patches by CodeRush (Unlock CPU Power Management Register (useful for Hackintosh Users)/Disable BIOS Lock/Disable SMI Lock)
       

      Flash procedure:
      1. Copy the BIOS file to an empty and with FAT16/32 formatted usb stick.
      2. Unplug the AC adapter.
      3. Remove the battery of the notebook - you can unlock the battery on the backside.
      4. Plug in the USB flash disk.
      5. Press and hold <Fn> and <Esc>, and then plug in the AC adapter while still holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      6. Press the Power button. You can now stop holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      7. The BIOS flash should now begin, the fans will spin up at max speed and the power led should blink. It should take between one to two minutes.
      8. After everything is done, you can reinsert the battery and go to the BIOS (F2). There you may want to change some settings (the BIOS flash erases all previously chosen settings).
