Can i restore BIOS without soldering or search of Pomona clips(i didn't found any here in Russia)?
On some laptops it possible to reflash BIOS with only the thumb drive, it possible on X60?
And sorry for broken english, it's not my native language.

Pomona clips? Use "SOIC-8 clip" as a search term.
Backup: X601 Core 2 Duo T8100
Toy: X60F Core Solo U1300
On loan: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M
In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E; X61 7676-A24; and a BOE-Hydis HV121P01-100 in failed SXGA+ mod
I was always wondering why everybody was re-using/keeping his/her BIOS's blobs and not using someone's else from the Internet (not taking into consideration now that BIOS images downloaded from the Internet might contain rootkits).
Can't just someone else with working X60 send him his BIOS and externally flash it back? I never done this before so I am just guessing here now that he'd end up with a ThinkPad with an existing Serial Numbers - but in real world that shouldn't be a big deal, or would it be? Or maybe motherboard serial numbers are stored somewhere else completely and it doesn't matter at all.
