M92p SFF: motherboard replaced, To be filled by O.E.M?

2021-05-26, 23:28 PM

Hi,

 

due to cleaning of my M92p SFF, i bent/broke some of CPU socket pins so i replaced the IS7XM motherboard with the one purchased from Aliexpress. I installed the new motherboard successfully but after i booted it showed Model type and Serial number as INVALID. I reflashed and updated the BIOS and entered model/type and serial number of my previous motherboard but License Status keeps showing No DPK. it came with Windows 7 Pro license that original sticker is still on the case. I activated Windows with this serial number as well but it is annoying me that in BIOS it shows No DPK and also in Windows System Information it shows BaseBoard Version as "No DPK"

 

additionally in Lenovo Vantage App it shows "To be filled by O.E.M." which suppose to show Pc model as seen in the screenshot below. 

 

How can i change it to show correct PC model on both Lenovo Vantage and in system?

 

ThinkPad X20, T23, X31, X40, T42, T60, X61, X61s, X230 / ThinkCentre M92p SFF / ThinkVision LT2252pwA

Hi BiggAl, thanks for response.

 

yes exactly i used that process and updated Model/Type/Serial and System Brand ID via amidedos.exe but i wonder why Lenovo Vantage App still shows "To be filled by OEM". also License Status showing "No DPK"

 

in other hand, linux neofetch is showing correct Model info as "ThinkCentre M92p"

 

i have 2 issues i wanna fix :

1- why lenovo vantage app showing "To be filled by OEM" ?

2- how can i get rid off "License Status : No DPK" on BIOS and register Windows License it has?

I can't answer that, as I have not replaced a motherboard on a ThinkCentre myself.  I wanted to ensure that you had seen the command line procedure to update the model and serial numbers (as opposed to answering the questions when doing the BIOS reflash.)

Based on the BIOS number, it is a IdeaPad 3 15IIL05.  You can review specs, see photos and documents at Lenovo PSREF.
