Zender or other Modded BIOS for T60 Please

#1 Post by madicetea » Sat Feb 03, 2018 8:26 am

I really need a BIOS that is at the latest version that will unlock the whitelist for WiFi / WWAN cards and bonus points if it has an SLIC 2.1 table in it as well.

Thanks!

Thank you, I will give it a try.

The real results will come tonight and in a couple days - I'll be upgrading the RAM and WiFi card in a couple days (~all parts ordered~), and do a test install of Windows 7 Ultimate tonight to verify the effectiveness of the SLIC table.

For now, I will be running Fedora 27 Workstation :D (Because while 1.5GB RAM is sort of small, that is still on the large side for this machine.)

While Zender's BIOS works, I've found a more updated T60 BIOS from German ThinkWiki (actually that link was dead, but found a reupload of only the ROM file on the Korean ThinkWiki) and then repackaged it for use in a FreeDOS bootable USB drive (with most recent 16-bit DOS phlash executable).

PM me if anyone is interested.

They both remove whitelists and enable SLIC 2.1

For anyone else, @madicetea was good enough to reup that BIOS, here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/vj7vdqd8 ... DOS%29.zip.

Are there any advantages of this BIOS compared to Zender's version? Possible extra features? I thought for T60 Zender's BIOS was the only available modded one.
Laptops after the 4:3 aspect ratio era are non-existent to me.

Zender only unlocked the whitelist.

Thanks. I was about to go post this when I saw someone had actually asked something on the thread again, but I see I've been beat to it. :D
