Thanks advising, backup_tools created "results" on to the desktop, file uploaded there:
http://rghost.net/59157005 name results_flex2
universal bios backup tool messaging Error "Can not identify BIOS", if i click OK, then i have only working buttons About and Exit, other buttons Read and Backup are grey....
Of course running programs as administrator....
I'm running windows 8.1 x64, maybe there is tools version question ?
Right now i have changed the original wireless card to blacklisted one and it's disabled in bios, because if i enable that one i will get message 104.
Do i need open laptop cover and change back the orignal whitelisted card for bios tools ? or it does not make any difference ?

Hi again. New try, new results. Obviously universal bios backup tool not running under the win8,
so i installed win7 on Flex 2 and tried again both tools, succeeded, back-up tool did the same (results .rar)
and universal bios backup tool did read the bios, backup saved as LENOVO-A0CN28WW.rom
Both files zipped as Flex2_backups.zip
Hope this helps now. Meanwhile did read the forums and understood that flashing tool version which passed is 9.5.14.1724 ....
also info.txt did not informed anything about protection 280, so can we hope that this Eeprom is just flashable ?
If it's possible, please remove wireless cards whitelist and if possible, setup submenus unhiding sounds also nice, if there will
be more parameters available for other OS. Thanks in advance and hope for help.

Hi BDMaster,
Glad to see that we can flash a modded Bios without external Hardware programmer on this
Lenovo flex 2 model.
You do a great job to help people :-)

We have a french topic lenovo flex 2 on this forum:
http://forum.hardware.fr/hfr/Ordinateurs...4416_1.htm
And some Members want to replace the original wifi card.

Which would be nice, would be to remove the whitelist checking in Bios.
Like this, everyone could use the modded Bios without worrying about the model of the new wireless card.
(boring to change the PCI/VEN value for each person - Better have a generic modded bios for all members)

Model Chip W25Q64BV (same that striimer)
Last Bios for Lenovo Flex 2 (14" - 15" Haswell model):
http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobi...cn28ww.exe

Can you help us please to remove the Whitelist Checking in the Bios ? :-)
Many members will appreciate your help :-)
Thanks

PS: result fptw64 -i
