NOTE: this is a very old post.

I got this x201 motherboard in a bin of spare x200/x201 parts and it had a drilled thinkengine, so what could I possibly have done?

Well transplant a new one in, the closest board I have to the x201 is a dead t420, and what do you know it uses the same part number for the think engine, looks good right?

Not so fast, upon replacing it I found out it is flashed with different firmware and the board appears completely dead!

Just to be sure I also tried to bypass the first two mosfets but no dice.

So where am I stuck? Well I need to find a cheap way to flash a thinkengine.

Thank you for reading.
