Hello!

I bought an X250 with Supervisor password. I was able to access most of the settings in BIOS but not Virtualization. In my desperate attempts to somehow reset the Supervisor password, I have entered it 3 times, of course the wrong one and then I was locked out of Windows and BIOS with the error: 199 system security - security password retry count exceeded. The only thing I can do is to enter the correct password which of course I don't know.

 

So, my kind request, if someone could please help me modify my BIOS dump in order to at least reset the incorrect password count so I can at least use my laptop like before, even with the Supervisor password, that will be great.

If the Supervisor password can be removed, that will be perfect.

 

Here is the BIOS dump: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0qyqdnakn7fsvcs/bios1.zip?dl=0

 

Thank you!

Not even with that flag that tells the BIOS I have entered the password to many times?

Hello Klem, I'm searching to upgrade my x260 with the following drive:

 

SSD TOSHIBA RC100 (240 GB - M.2 2242 - PCIe 3.1

 

Would this be possible with an unlocked bios? 

 

Thank you very much in advance for your guidance and assistance!

Hello Klem, thank you for the speedy response. 

 

Tried out the Toshiba drive but cannot get it recognized to install win10. From other sites gathered that Lenovo only allows whitelisted wifi cards. So I was wondering, if your modded bios will allow to recognize the drive and use it as a bootable m.2 nvme drive. 

 

Thank you again!

Ok. Now I understand. Unfortunately unlocked bios can't help to recognize SSD in m.2 slot. It's Lenovo design for x260 laptop model.

Rats.

 

Joined T|I forums just now to see if removing BIOS hardware whitelisting could facilitate using a M.2 2242 NVMe SSD for in the X260 WWAN PCIe port.

 

So you're saying the X260 board architecture itself doesn't have NVMe lanes to support using the WWAN PCIe port for an SSD? Getting rid of BIOS whitelisting would allow other WWAN cards to be used but nothing else?

Bust. It's a great machine but provides no meaningful path for dual drives.

I was not 100% sure if I correctly dumped my bios. The file linked was what I dumped. Will that work or did I do it incorrectly?

 

Thanks for your efforts here. Its unbelievable the amount of work you do.

      Hello, I have several Lenovo L530 notebooks, but there is no wi-fi adapter inside. I tried to use my wi-fi adapters, but whti every adapter I have an error "1802 unauthorized network card is plugged in". I have already used all available wi-fi adapters, but no result. I really need professional help and I hope I find it here. As far as I understand there is a way to remove whitelist in BIOS, so here's the file with my BIOS dump.

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)
