Note: This procedure is for Phoenix BIOS`es only and this metod works only for lenovo.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUTE RECOVERY LENOVO LAPTOPS: Do not take off your battery before flashing unlike the others brand that you should take off battery!! It seems that before flashing, it verify AC/DC connection and battery level. If one of them is not ok, then reflash is stopped.

Hi,

 

i guess i bricked my IdeaPad S205 with deleting the entire boot order :/

As i can currently only use my flatmate's MacBook, i cannot use the wincris.exe as it (using Wine) doesn't recognize the removable USB media.... tried 4 different, none of them worked.

 

Could you maybe zip/rar your files so i could just unpack them to the usb stick? Or wouldn't this work as it would not be bootable after just copying the files?

Next problem:

 

Even on my Win7 64 bit machine @work i don't get wincris.exe to recognize the usb stick (although Win itself recognizes it - even as properly formated). What else could I do? Is there a way to create the usb boot stick using Win7?


Regarding http://s205blog.wordpress.com/2013/01/13/lenovo-s205-bios-recovery-updating-bios-without-installed-windows-os/comment-page-1/ i need a WinXP 32 bit system running. Can anyone confirm/deny that?

 Run as Administrator is not possible because i don't have the required password :/

 

Help would be very much appreciated.

 

Best regards.
