    Just updated my T61P (6459-CTO) running OpenSuSE 12.1 with the new bios. My recently purchased Crucial M4 64GB SSD is now performing as expected. My unscientific testing using 'hdparm -t' and 'hdparm -T' shows a near doubling of performance. Now my poor Samsung 640GB HDD in the Ultrabay seems so slow. Thanks for the bios. Install was quick and so far, no issues.

    X200s BIOS is not a special one. It disables the dual-IDA possibility in the same way as other ThinkPads usually do. The problem is that I don't have enough time for BIOS modding now. Don't know when X301 mod will be ready (maybe never) but it won't be public in any case cause I can't support it.

    @nando4: Don´t forget to mention the X200 Tablet family as they use the same type of low voltage CPUs.

    thats sad - i want to use your wonderful Bios on my x200

    i've here the newest x200 3.20 BIOS with disabled whitelist and SLIC 2.1 and using IDA would be the Top.

    Or is there any way that you could show us how to mod an BIOS your style?

    I don't have any special BIOS modding style. I make mods with tools from forums.mydigitallife.info. If you need a modified BIOS, then leave your request there. Whitelist and SLIC 2.1 are not a problem for those guys a long time ago. As for dual-IDA support: give them link to kizwan's "EIST Unlocked Example" guide.

    Hi, Last couples of days I've been reading this post, so, I wish to thanks Middleton for this great bios, also I've read that some of you have really seen a difference using SSD's, and have notice different brands, and I wan't to know from the users which one is better.


    Thanks
