    These ISOs perform flash in automatic mode. They are not intended to use from a flash drive. You should do some additional steps:

    1) Create flash.bat file with the following content:

    @echo off
    echo.
    echo.
    echo Updating Embedded Controller. Please wait...
    PHLASH16 /mode=2 /p /s /cs /x /exit $01B2000.FL2
    echo EC flash completed. Reboot your machine now.

    2) Copy this flash.bat file to your pendrive (it should be placed in one folder with phlash16.exe).

    3) Boot with the USB stick and do what you did before but instead of typing "command.com", type "flash".

    Hi!
    Thanks to all for this beautiful and useful thread.
    I have the same problem, I have a T61 with FN-CTRL swap.
    Now I would like to come back to the original keyboad layout, but after flashaed original BIS (2.30) nothing changed.

    Now I have a 2.30 BIOS with FN-CTR swap.
    If anyone can help me I thank you!

    Hi Middleton:
    Luckily I found this forum. I installed Window 7 32bit on a separate partition and got my X61 bios flashed. I verified it with Sandra Lite, and now my SSD(SATA3) is unleashed at SATA2 speed. It is a world of difference(I am running Window 7 64bit)! I am very grateful... It was fun to do! Where can I send my money?

    Hey Middleton.

    I've been using your bios mod for the y560p for some time now, which has been working brilliantly. Lenovo has released a new bios for this series, which has fixed many issues for most people, found here. Lenovo Support - Drivers & Downloads

    Updating to this bios though, it seems to have overwritten your modded embedded controller. I was hoping, if you see this, and if you're not too busy you could update your mod for the 560p for the newest version.
