This brief description of Middleton’s BIOS was written by Ali.dj, which archives the files. Thank you very much. We’ve also loaded Middleton’s BIOS into every internet archive so it never gets lost.
Notebookreview.com forum user ‘middleton’ found BIOS changes to enable SATA-II, disable MiniPCIe whitelist (so any WLAN card can then be used), and even optional FN -Ctrl replacement. Finally, if you’ve had the guts to install IPS SXGA + film on the classic X61, there is a BIOS mod in the middleton that makes this possible.
SATA-II Mod: Although the X61 / T61 / R61 / X300 have a better SATA-II interface (up to 3.0Gbps), they were in the BIOS to ensure compatibility with the SATA-to -Pata controller of Ultrabay Slim adapter SATA HDD that can never handle the maximum speed of the SATA-II bus. Regular hard drives rarely reach I-Sata speeds, but these days SSDs can handle the full 3.0 Gbps (and up).
Flash is an EXE file that directly updates the BIOS. Please note that flashing BIOS works on 32-bit versions of Windows. If you are using64-bit or whatever operating system you have, burn the attached ISO file to a CD or DVD and start from there. The following table lists the supported Thinkpad models and the corresponding BIOS update files:
These modified BIOS images have been tested as beta versions to confirm that they do not just cause the system to crash after flashing. However, data integrity checking takes time and the user must also directly confirm that there is no claim to the data due to the increased speed of the SATA-II GUI. You are solely responsible for any damage to your desktop computer system or data that is primarily caused by flashing or using a patched BIOS.
Lenovo has never implemented, approved, or supported these revised BIOSes. They are provided “as is” without warranty of any kind from Lenovo. These are definitely unofficial BIOS versions.
