hi all.i have trouble with lifted pads.i want to ask a question.i have thinpad t500.when i tried to remove bios chip(16 pins)for libreboot.
i lifted some of pads.i wonder whether if this could be possible: "there is a 8 pin chip place within the 16 pin bios chip location.is that for as a replacing option?can i use one of the 8 pins to recover some of my lifted pads as a proper order?"
pinout and the pcb:

There are no circuit diagrams. You can check with an ohm meter. You have the pinouts. Only 8 pins are used so an 8-pin could be used if they are connected.

thansks.problem has been solved.i have used multimeter to track pcb ways and boom.The 8-pin portion inside the 16-pin chip location is directly connected to the 16-pin one,so the 8-pin is for the small version of the same chip.
