X260 full bios image

Hello,

 

I'm trying to repair my x260 after damaging the bios flash IC. I have a suitable replacement chip, but flashing the binary included in the update software doesn't seem to work. I'm using SPI to flash and then soldering the chip in, which should work fine. What I think I need is not just an update binary but an entire image of the contents of the chip. Anybody have a solution?

Re: X260 full bios image

I believe there is security info that is tied to data in another chip and is unique to the particular machine so no general image will give you a complete package.
