Y580 BIOS problem!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

first of all sorry for my english, is not my native language.

I made huge mistake and need your advice to help me solve my problem.

I have flashed accidentally my bios with wrong version. I have Y580 (v bios: 5dcn40ww) but instaled bios from G580 (v bios: 5ecn96ww). Flashing proces went smoothly w/o any errors but after restart my HDD is not visable in bios (only SSD work).

When i tryied reflash it back, pop an error:

I googled a bit and find the way to skip this error (extracted 5dcn40ww.exe using winzip and edited

[Platform_Check]
Flag=0

in platform.ini )

It helps, but in next stage, during flashing it returns an error:

After many attempts and edits platform.ini i couldn't solve this error. If any1 know how to do it please tell me!

Thank You svl7 for your answer! :)

I couldn't download attachments from your link. I created backup for my current bios using BIOS Backup ToolKit V2.0 though (have file LENOVO-5ECN96WW(V9.01).rom).

I'm waiting for further instructions.

Just click on 'go advanced' when posting and you'll find the attachment options.

PROBLEM SOLVED THX TO svl7!

1. Create Bootable USB stick and bios backup following to this guide: http://forum.techinferno.com/lenovo-ibm/2260-lenovo-y580-y480-unlocked-bios-versions.html

2. Download bios you want to flash.

2. Download FPT Tool from here and prr tool from here.

3. Put the prr and fpt files on your bootable USB stick, as well as the bios you want to flash.

4. Boot your pendrive and type

prr

and press Enter.

5. Flash with

fpt -f [I]biosnamehere[/I].bin -bios

.

6. Reboot if there's no error message, go to the bios and load the default settings.

I have same problem with wrong BIOS version, do everything like stayinthelight, but I get error:

Error 104: The 2 SPI flash devices do not have compatible command sets.

BIOS is downloaded from official lenovo website. How can I fix this?
