FN+R does not invoke flashing the bios for me on a T430. What combination is correct?

How I bricked Lenovo ThinkPad E440 and recover it again

2018-03-20, 22:16 PM

Problem: I downloaded the installation file with the new BIOS version 2.27, I started installing under Windows 7, then there was a message that the upgrade would be done after the restart, unfortunately the notebook froze with the "Shutdown ..." screen. I turned it off after five minutes. When I turned it on, there was only black screen and running fan.

 

Solution:

• Get a low-capacity USB flash drive, format it to a FAT system (maybe not needed, but this worked for me), preferably with an LED
• Download and extract wincrisis.1.0.0.4.zip on another Windows 7 PC
• Run Wincris.exe in Compatibility mode
• In the application, select the attached USB flash drive, other options default and start > once the process has finished disconnect and reconnect the USB flash drive
• From the lenovo support pages, download the BIOS file for installation from Windows (in * .exe format), run the installation, but quit before running the application itself
• On the C: \ drive, find the folder where the application has been installed and find the file * .FL1, which you rename to bios.cap and copy it together with MINIDOS.SYS, PHLASH16.EXE (from wincrisis.1.0.0.4.zip) to prepared USB flash drive
• Personally, I had HDD and DVD out of my laptop to make sure the USB flash drive is the only bootable medium (It may not be necessary, but it worked for me).
• I personally had my battery removed and the power adapter disconnected (maybe not needed, but this worked for me)
• Connect the USB flash drive, press and hold FN + R > connect the AC adapter > press and hold the power button (all buttons now at once) > the notebook turns on, still hold all the buttons > the notebook turns off, still hold all the buttons > the notebook turns on release the power button but still hold FN + R > After a few seconds the USB flash drive will light up, release all buttons and the USB flash drive starts blinking and the notebook screen appears lights up and the flash BIOS process starts

 

I hope it will help you and I am sorry for my English.

 

God Luck

Hi guys, this is what i did to my Thinkpad X200.

 

Tools required.

Rufus - https://rufus.ie/

Phoenix Crisis Recovery - download from Post 1.

 


1. Download original X200 bios from Lenovo Website (6duj48u6.exe).

 

2. Execute the file and cancelled the installation after all files extracted to C: drive.


3. Look for file with extension .FL1 and renamed to BIOS.WPH.

 

4. Make your usb drive bootable with Rufus. Choose 'FreeDos' and the rest unchanged.

 

5. Run Crisis Recovery with compatible mode on "Windows XP Service Park 3" follow the instructions .txt file.

    All required files “MINIDOS.SYS”, “PHLASH16.EXE” and "BIOS.WPH" will be copied into the usb drive by the tool.

 

6. Replaced "BIOS.WPH" in usb drive with your renamed "BIOS.WPH".

 

7. Turn off your laptop, disconnect the power source, plug in the USB stick.

 

8. Connect the Power source, Press and hold “fn” key + “R” or “fn” key + “B” and while doing so hit the power button and hold on to the keys other than power button.

    Wait for 5 seconds until you see the usb drive blink and the fan running.

 

9. Leave your laptop alone for few minutes and it will shutdown on its own, laptop should beep during bios update.

 

I have successful recovery my X200.

 

Cheers

 

Keith

Re:LENOVO BIOS RECOVERY

I have a customer’s laptop, Ideapad S145. She noticed that there was a firmware update in the Lenovo Info program. She ran the update and she said the screen went black and nothing happened. She claims she waited 30 minutes before turning off the laptop. Now when you turn it on, the power button glows orange for five seconds and then turns off. It comes back on after about two seconds. This cycle keeps repeating.

 

I have removed the a/c power, battery and hard drive and disconnected the CMOS battery and held down the power button for one minute. Reconnecting the CMOS battery and a/c power the same on-off cycle continues after pressing the power button. Nothing comes up on the screen and there are no beeps.

 

I followed the steps at https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-S-series-Netbooks/LENOVO-BIOS-RECOVERY/m-p/332989 for Wincrises and there is no booting from the USB drive as the on-off cycle happens. I even tried formatting the USB stick with FreeDos and copy the BIOS files and plugged it in. Still nothing on the screen as the on-off cycle is happening.

 

Is there any hope of fixing this laptop and if so, any ideas?
