7-22-10 PROBLEM SOLVED!! Patched T61/X61 sata-II bios available here. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Hi MDL, Any bios modders wanting to have a go? Lenovo T61p bios is capped to 1.5Gbps SATA-II performance on their primary HDD bay. Lenovo have so far been uncooperative in removing this capping via a bios update. It would seem then users are being squeezed to upgrade to T400/T500 systems to see full OCZ Vertex streaming performance. ICH8M I/O chipset bit requiring alteration is summarized here. Just requires bios disassembly, modding and reassembly to make it happen. Any volunteers? T61p bios revision history is here. More notes on possible way of doing this mod are here.
