I had a problem recently, trying to update the ECP from V2.04 to V3.04 on a T42.Bibin wrote:I had applied this to my T43p, and then applied the SATA mod. Did anyone do the mod with the stock bios? I have a theory that the 2010 error would not show up in that situation but I can not test it myself unless there is an easy way to restore my original T43p bios.
Every time it just 'hung' halfway through. The BIOS was already at the latest with V3.23.
I then downgraded the BIOS with an older version (V3.20) that would still be compatible with the (new) ECP 3.04.
The BIOS program warns you that you put in an older version, but does so without any problem.
Once BIOS 3.20 was installed, ECP update to 3.04 functioned perfectly, and I then updated the BIOS 'back' up to 3.23
I'm sure the above will also work on other Thinkpad models.
