X1 Carbon with Corrupted UUID

I have an X1 Carbon with Corrupted UUID.

I bought it off eBay. it looks like someone removed the password by shorting the EEPROM.

now, UUID is all fffffff .

I booted from the Hardware Maintenance Diskette but I cannot read/write anything on EEPROM (Secure boot is disabled already). 

when I try to add UUID it gives me error message Setting SCIA Checksum... FAILED. . 


the funny part is .. after it fails (Setting SCIA Checksum... FAILED.) I reboot onto the BIOS and I find the UUID in their ! .

only when I turn off the computer. 


Can I resolder/reflash (where?) ...

Im opento all suggestions. please help
