No you need to buy a 42mm SATA M.2 NGFF SSD (ie M.2 2242).

Quote: To make things easy paste your 'fptw64' folder in C drive. The directory will now be c:\fptw64. Open command prompt as administrator (important).


Type

cd c:\fptw64\

and then

fptw64.exe -d biosbackup.bin -bios

 

It will start backing up and the newly generated biosbackup.bin found in the fptw64 folder will be your bios backup.

 

I tried this method.

The first part was OK cd: cd c:\fptw64\

the second part was rejected as it's not a cmdlet, function. script file or operable with lots of red stuff

Thumbs Up

My system is IdeaPad Y500 with 2 Nvidia 750m 2G graphic cards. One card is soldered to the Intel graphic card and the other is removable. The Bios version is 2.03.

I want to remove one of the Nvidia card and add a powerful external GPU for better gaming.
Before I commit to buying the new card:
Can the 2.03 Bios version accept the external card or do I need to flash the Bios?

i encountered "error 200" when running backup bios tool.   I tried running fpt_dos and i tried fpt_w64.  I got the same error both times.

How do i get around this error?   I am running V2.04 BIOS .

I also could not create the DOS boot USB by the method described here.   I had to use rufus instead and from there i tried to furn fpt_dos to create by "bios backup" witch failed.

Hi!

Send me your file backup of bios via PM.

For creating backup of bios use attached program. Extract  attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the program as Administrator (right click mouse). Program will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results" via PM, or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

I know it's been a few years, but I'm currently running a y500 with a v2.04 BIOS and a locked wlan card. Anyone know where I can get an active link for an unlocked BIOS or if I am able to go back to v2.02 w/o bricking the system?

Do not pay attention to errors, just let the utility completely finish its work.

      A part of my BIOS got corrupted that controls my laptops backlights. Other methods like the Gary Key fix did not work for me because I do not get any light up during post. i followed this guide  that says I need to extract and use the 6MB portion of an 8MB bios dump, only AFUWIN tells me "Error, ROM file size does not match existing BIOS size which is because my laptop BIOS size is only 5.87MB.  I don't need to flash the whole BIOS, I only need to flash a portion of it. 
       
      I've searched everywhere online for a dump of my laptop model but non exist that I know of.

      I fiddled around with modding my laptops BIOS to unlock XMP profiles and hopefully seeing if optimus could be disabled. After flashing my modded bios and trying it out, I noticed that my keyboards backlight no longer turns on. I was unaware it requires an official BIOS to function. They backlights wont turn on unless ASUS ATK package is installed but now it seems it also needs an official BIOS?
       
      The modded ROM and tool I used if anyone has any experience with this and doesn't mind telling me what to enable/disable, or anything else i can do to re-enable them

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!

      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.
