ThinkCentre: RX 470 graphics card GPU Not Booting

I replaced power with a 650w supply since i knew I was going to put a GPU in my PC (a Lenovo m91p desktop), and upgraded it with an RX 470 graphical card by XFX. When I put it in my computer, it does not boot up and none of the peripherals work either (the lights on my mouse turn on usually). All the fans spin including the GPU. My monitor receives no signal either. When I take the card out however everything works. My BIOS is up to date, the version is 9HKT58A which is latest version I found on levovo offical Website, everything is correctly plugged and installed.
BIOS info: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS018245

RX 470 is not included in M91P BIOS white list. I have to flash the graphical adapter BIOS or modify M91P BIOS white list.

I hva the same problem with rx 570. I can confirm that the issue is with the bios whitelist, but I have not found any bios mods for M91p.

Re: RX 470 graphical card Not Booting

Hi rg10, thanks for sharing. I have my RX470 working with M91P finally. Freshing the graphical adapter bios is much easyer. The following forum may help you: 270x-downgrade-bios-to-7870-for-m91p-motherboard. I did not use hex editor, used bios fresh tool(ATIFlash) instead. Backup current bios first then modify the Device ID. Good luck!

Re: RX 470 graphical card Not Booting

I am wondering does the RX470 work as normal even with 7870 ID? I am planning on flashing the RX480 to the 7870 ID.

Hello jinzongnan,

 

can you maybe help me?

 

I've got the same issue you also had, and tried to get help from the forum you mentioned here: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/270x-downgrade-bios-to-7870-for-m91p-motherboard.237389/p...

 

I've got a lot of replies and BIOS GPU versions to test on, but couldN#t get it working so far.

 

Can you maybe tell me hat your GPU is/was  and how you managed to get it working?

 

Thank you very much in advance

Did you make it work? I'm planning to get an Rx 570 from Gigabyte for my m91p motherboard too

Do you think it would work on a Rx 570 from Gigabyte? Or should I go for a Gtx 1060?
