Good for my frankenpad

#1 Post by nightninja96 » Fri Oct 27, 2017 8:04 pm

Hello, I can't find a bios for my frankenpad. My frankenpad features a 14.1" 4:3 screen and an integrated intel graphics card. I want to install a c2q q9100 but I can't find the modified bios for my machine.
Thank you for your help

Ok, You have to fill out the following:
Do you want a quad core: yes.
Do you want nVidia underclock: doesn't matter (would recommend standard voltage)
Do you want Active System Power Management: That is up to you!
Do you want nVidia overlock: doesn't matter (would recommend no)

Now pick a bios that fits the following specs above and install it!

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Ok, I picked the modded bios that best suits me, now I have to get the newest bios from lenovo. I have to flash the official (Lenovo bios) then re-flash my system with modded bios. I can't find a official bios for the t61 that supports non-widescreen.

AFAIK, all T61's use the same BIOS, regardless of widescreen or not.

When I install the modified bios do I have to have my officially supported CPU in (t7200) or do I put my q9100 in before I install the modded bios?
Thanks

I doubt the machine will even boot with an unoffical CPU so installing without it would theoretically be impossible.

If one needs BIOS x to install CPU y, it would seems logical really. Otherwise there's no need to install said BIOS and CPU y is indeed supported.
