I have recently change my defective X230 motherboard with a functional X220 motherboard. However I didn't notice that the X220 use a different keyboard that the X230, so my keyboard isn't recognized fully. So I'd like to know if it's possible to have a modded X220 BIOS which can support the X230 keyboard. Here's some important info :
- Motherboard Manufacturer and Model : Lenovo ThinkPad X220
- Bios Revision : 8DET61WW (1.31) from 2012-04-25
Furthermore, do I need to first update my BIOS to the latest version and then update to the modded BIOS, or I can update directly to the modded BIOS ?
Thanks a lot
Not really. The other way is possible, because that's what most people cared about, so some folks went through the trouble of creating an embedded controller (EC) patch. I seem to recall that the EC region in the X230 is more protected against modification, so even if someone wanted to write a similar reverse patch, it would not be easy.
If you are fine with the X220, just get an X220 keyboard. They should be abundant and not expensive.
X61 7673-V2V, T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G, X32 (IPS Screen), A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad, A21m 2628-GXU
But I'll leave the x230 keyboard as it and if really the owner doesn't like that, I'll buy x220 keyboard + palmrest.
