Need T60 Bios dump file

Hi everybody

1st of all sorry for my english

I have a Lenovo hinkpad T60 1952-cto (not the Wide screen model) and I tried to update my bios but now the notebook don't start  (I think that I flashed it with the wrong flash file).I'm not able to boot from cd neither enter in the setup utility.

after a lo time of googling I found that I can repair my laptop by programming the bios eeprom with a clean dump file obtained from another T60.

can anyone send me a dump file of it's T60 bios? (you can use Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit 2.0 to create this dump file.

 

Thanks in advance

It doesn't work like that. Part of your BIOS is related to security, so it is unique to your machine. You will get 4 sets of 4 beeps.

The dump you put back will have security info that will not match the rest of the board. (it will match the security stuff onf the board the dump came from) You will get 4 sets of 4 beeps. It won't start. I will not discuss in more detail because it would violate policy on bypassing security.
