Phoenix Bios Editor 2.2 12


Phoenix Bios Editor 2.2 12

In my personal experience, when updating the BIOS with either the phoenix tool or SpareBIOS, there is little chance of success. I’m not sure why there is a difficulty since the utility for updating the BIOS is fairly simple. All BIOS updates are done using files stored on a floppy disk. There is a floppy disk utility which allows you to use the BIOS update files when the computer is not running. A post on the Lenovo Forum which suggests performing a BIOS update with the SpareBIOS utility is in this forum topic. This isn’t a very common procedure but it is not too hard and has worked for the author.

If the motherboard firmware upgrade did not resolve the problem then you may need to restore your old BIOS. To do that you will want to obtain a flashrom reader and a FlashROM disk image. If you have a Windows flashrom driver compatible with Windows 10 you may be able to use Windows to create a FlashROM disk image. Otherwise if you have a Linux compatible flashrom you will be using the tool in Linux.
This is a utility for fixing the BIOS on certain ThinkPads. It will return the BIOS to the original (not Lenovo’s BIOS) that the PC shipped with. Note that this is a lengthy process, and there is NO GUARANTEE that it will work. If the BIOS is not in an acceptable state for you to modify, there is no point in risking it.
You can use this utility to update the BIOS on your ThinkPad. It works best with IBM Thinkpads. I’ve had good luck with the original BIOS (read from the computer’s BIOS chip) for the ThinkPad X20/21/22, x30/x20/21/30, and ThinkPad X60/X61/X200/M60. ThinkPads X23/X24 and X31 are not supported. This utility works by completely replacing the existing BIOS on the chip. It does not touch or need to touch the ECP or any other firmware, and is therefore more secure than the methods in other manuals.
These are complete BIOSes from ThinkPad X30, x31, x41 and x200 (in no particular order) that you can use for your own upgrades. They are the original BIOSes they shipped with, although they are not from the main ThinkPad site.
Note: the name of the configuration file is the same as the firmware in this utility (read from the ThinkPad’s BIOS chip). It is NOT the same as the configuration file which the reader writes to the chip. You should expect to overwrite the chip even if you are updating the firmware for a different reason (for example, you can be updating the firmware for an external USB interface). The settings in this utility are the settings which were written to the chip originally when you first shipped the laptop. This utility is here to restore those settings.
