[Solved] Lenovo s206 adding support of E2-2000
#1
Hello guys.

I replaced (resoldered) BGA AMD Processor on Lenovo s206 laptop. I installed AMD E2-2000, but now my laptop starts and the processor is being detected as "AMD Processor Model Unknown". As I researched, there are no claims of "E2-2" in stock AGESA code of Lenovo s206. I tried to replace it with AGESA code extracted from Lenovo G585 which has AMD E2-2000 support, and replaced AGESA module using PhoenixTool, but the laptop doesn't work with modified BIOS. How to add support of AMD E2-2000? Maybe somebody may help?

I attached original BIOS image from Lenovo s206 and AGESA module from G585.


Thanks in advance!

Super! It works! This website is awesome, the only web resource where people really helped me with this problem! Many many thanks!

BTW:
This mod is worthy when your s206 comes with AMD C50/C60 or E300/E1-1200.
Personally, I bought E2-2000 (EM2000GBB22GV) for $7, but its regular price on aliexpress not higher than $15 for new. The replacement is much much easier than replacing any other BGA processors or graphics chips. The only problem was BIOS support, but you solved it. Thanks!

Cheers
