    Hi guys

    i have a thinkpad x230 laptop which died during bios update. I have a spi programmer with witch i can program the two bios chips SPI1 - 8 mb size and SPi2 - 4mb size. the problem is that when uppack the original exe from the lenovo site there are two fl files $01D3000.fl1 size 8.388 mb and $01D3000.fl2 size 12.718 mb. I tried to use phcomp.exe to decompres them but they become even larger although the bois is a insyde bios, not phoenix.

    Can You please assist me in getting the right content of the two spi1 chips from the bios files from the original bios.

    I am attaching the content from the chips after the bad bios update
