Hey Guys, does anyone happen to have a t430s bios image? I kinda had way
to much mate this morning, so i was a little bit to enthusiastically
while desoldering and ripped the WSON-8 chip from the board. I soldered
wires to the pins, but wasnt able to recover the image, and without ifd,
i cant build coreboot.


cheers

Hi
The safer solution is to get it from the Manufacturer's website (nor
relying on someone's image, you may be hacked this way).
In this case you can download this .iso and "dd" to a usbdevice.
With this you will find the .bin with the entire bios image:

Hope it can help.

Best Regards

Hi,

thank you, i tried that already , but it didnt work, neither simply
mounting the iso, not with 7zip under windows,  neither with dd to usb
nor with nero/ burning it to a cd ( i used nero because i saw in
hexeditor that the iso was build with it).

Therefor, i really need that image somehow. No worrys about me getting
hacked, neither that image nor that board will be used (just ifd for a
little test).

Let me know if you have any ideas left.

cheers jonathan

Afaik there are companies that will ship you a pre-programmed SPI chip for most devices, for like 20 euros.

I used this one in the past http://www.bios-chip24.com/en_US but there are others too.

This is of course just as secure as getting it from some random guy on the internet (i.e. not that much).

It is as secure as downloading a BIOS image from the internet, except
you're paying much more.
