Lenovo Yoga 11e dead BIOS
#1
Hello,

I have a Lenovo Yoga 11e 20G8 that I tried to flash to the latest BIOS ( from 1.10 to 1.38) and it just turned off during the flashing process.
Spins the fan at max when powered on but that's about it. Tried the AMI BIOS recovery option, no dice. In hindsight, stupid idea to jump so many BIOS versions but hey, here we are Smile

I got a CH341A programmer and I have removed the board. BIOS is WINBOND 25Q64FVS1Q or 25Q64FV for short.

I can read the BIOS just fine and I saved it to my PC. Output was an 8MB file.

I tried going back to version 1.10 since I know for sure that was working. Problem is, the BIOS file from Lenovo is 8.93MB in size, is a .FL1 file and I cannot flash it back since it exceeds the 8MB limit.

Can someone please let me know what am I doing wrong?
