    I tried installing the bios provided on previous post, however when it goes into the flashing menu it says"no updated needed"

    Manufaturer: IBM Lenovo
    Model: Thinkpad T42
    BIOS Revision: 3.23

    The Bios version that ha sbeen edited by Yen is also 3.23 .

    Anyway to try and install it, or change the bios so that it will install over?

    Any help is appreciated.

    I had just downloaded these files following the posts in this forum (didn't get a chance to try them out myself). However, if you look at the linked post, there is one reported success with the first file (i.e. t400._TC-5H.rar). I looked at the disassembly - it's indeed SLIC 2.1 modded ("LENOVOTC-5H/MSFT") and should activate 7.

    However, when I looked at the other two files (originally linked from Yen's post) - I couldn't find the 2.1 SLIC (although I can't be 100% sure).
    Maybe someone else can confirm this? If someone who speaks chinese can go through that forum and share the success reports, that would be great.
    I have updated my original post based on this.

    Cheers!
