Whitelist Removal Lenovo Y470P
I've tried the solution from this thread: http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Re...enovo-Y470
But I cannot flash it to my y470p.
Any ideas are appreciated Big Grin

RE: Whitelist Removal Lenovo Y470P
I am having the same issue... I would like to have the bios modded. I want to be able to select the option to use only the discrete graphics chip. Right now it only has the option to use the Hybrid (switchable) graphics, or the integrated chip from Intel. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

Primary: Lenovo Y470p, Intel Core i7-2670QM, Radeon HD 7690m Intel HD Hybrid, 500Gb 7200rpm HD, 8.0GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM 1333 MHz
Secondary: Custom Built, Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550, BFG Nvidia Geforce GTX 285 OCX Edition, 8GB PC2-8500 DDR2 SDRAM 1066 MHz, 1TB 7200rpm HD, Asus Maximus Performance II Motherboard

RE: Whitelist Removal Lenovo Y470P
I'm having the same issue, the BIOS version for my y470p is:

59CN18WW(V2.03), 2/14/2012

This BIOS version is not available for download, at least not that I'm aware of. Is there a way to dump the BIOS image from my computer?

I've been unable to flash the files on the other thread, see my comments there.

I think it is not possible to enable only the discrete GPU because of the way the GPU switching works. The dedicated GPU has no connection to the display, so it uses the integrated GPU to get the framebuffer to the display. The intergrated GPU must be on all the time because of this. If you disable the integrated GPU, there will be no video output.
