    Hi guys, I am trying to remove whitelist on my Lenovo G50-70 BIOS, and I did a steps according to your guide (thank you again :) up to creating of BIOS.bin, but now I am stuck - old version of Intel's Flash programming tool (I have fptw ver. 8.0.10.1464) cannot run on my Wind 10, and I can't find never version to download and try.
    Yes, it sounds silly, and I know you will tell me to search the forum, read other posts and google...this was what I did last 4 hours :(
    So please help me: send me a link to new version of fptw tool, or link to some other similar tool.
    Thank you

    I have laptop Lenovo G50-70 with:
    -Intel Core i3 CPU
    -8GB RAM, 256GB Samsung SSD
    -Intel WiFi (will be replaced if whitelist removed)
    -Intel Graphics
    -Windows 10
    ...old BIOS, Hex editor...all by the book/Guide

    ok,
    so, here again is the problem report files, with the efi folder,
    As I said previously, on my Thinkpad T420,I have flashed the bios, so when it starts up it beeps five times, then five times more, which indicates it has been updated.
    The card seems to be recognised in System preferences, and the Wifi symbol appears on the top right of the screen.
    The only thing is, when I try to turn WiFi on, it just blanks, nothing happens.
    Does this mean the Whitelist hasn't been removed, or that the card is faulty?
    I booted up in ubuntu, and wifi didnt work there either.

    Should I get a new card, or try a different BIOS mod?
    (I am using 1.46)

    Hope you can give me some guidance on this!

    Best to test your WiFi hardware on Windows.

    Hi:

    Will the Z50-70 bios (9ACN26WW) work on my Z40-70?

    I have sucessfully, patched my bios file.
    After searching for a working version of fptw64 the following occurs.

    When I run the command for the first time, it quickly exists without any messages.

    I tested the wifi card, but the whitelist was not defeated.

    so I tried to run the flash process again, and still no messages.

    If I try a second time right away, I get an error as follows:


    ##First time i run the command

    C:\Users\Lucas Botelho\Downloads\Flash Programming Tool\WINDOWS64>fptw64.exe -f bios.bin -bios

    Intel (R) Flash Programming Tool. Version: 11.0.0.1160
    Copyright (c) 2007 - 2015, Intel Corporation. All rights reserved.

    ##The program ends with no messages at all

    ## Then I rum the command again

    C:\Users\Lucas Botelho\Downloads\Flash Programming Tool\WINDOWS64>fptw64.exe -f bios.bin -bios

    Intel (R) Flash Programming Tool. Version: 11.0.0.1160
    Copyright (c) 2007 - 2015, Intel Corporation. All rights reserved.

    ###This time I get the following error


    Error 366: Fail to load driver (PCI access for Windows).
    Tool needs to run with an administrator priviledge account.
    PMxdll.dll DebugMsg: Call to PMXDestroy()

    C:\Users\Lucas Botelho\Downloads\Flash Programming Tool\WINDOWS64>

    ##P.S. Of course I´m running command prompt as administrator.

    Please help me....
