    Oh f**k.

    All hell just broke loose...


    Tried updating - failed.
    Tried recovery, success at last - or so it seemed.

    The screen is black, but it appears to boot.
    External screen does not work either.

    Not even emergency-flashing it back to the original BIOS works.


    Any ideas?

    After flashing a couple of times more I've got image, but nothing happens after "phoenix" is shown on the screen.

    If I press "F2" it says "Please wait", but nothing happens.

    Any ideas?

    With a dead PC, how would I be able to flash the BIOS without using the recovery method?

    Yes, I tried it...

    When I do it I wait for, say, 20mins - then I reboot, as nothing seems to happen.

    Then I get presented the standard phoenix bootscreen, but it won't move on.

    If I press F2 for entring BIOS, it tells me to wait, but honestly - when nothing happens after 9 hours i consider it malfunctioning...


    How would I clear the CMOS?
    On a stationary computer I'd do it by removing the clock battery, but that's quite hard in this case.

    It sure is.

    You're the man, Yen :)
    I appreaciate you doing the magic you do, without payment or anything (even tho' I disregard piracy for money :) )

    Do you think the SLIC table looks okay?

    And the Lenovo key is banned, so I'll have to wait for a new one, right?

    Thanks YEN.

    I'm using IFT01 and previously succeded flash the SLIC 2.0 with USB Key then using floppy recovery method.

    The second one, I also succeded flash the SLIC 2.1 with only using USB Key (no need floppy recovery).

    BTW, is there any tutorial to modify the COMPAL bioses myself?
