We are able to permanently disable the Absolute Persistence, either by rebuilding the whole BIOS without it or disable it in the ThinkShield.

The service is 35 Euro.... or free with Each BIOS/Computrace reset service

Contact us at support@allservice.ro to check if your Lenovo model is eligible

Yes.

P920 has 3 SPIs: MX25L320, Winbond 25X40 and Winbond 25Q256.. but
We need the 32Mbyte dump (Winbond 25Q256) only.

Ah, good to know that. Because for whatever reason SPEG didn't want to read the MX chip, showing 0x00000 Jedec ID...

PIN 3 and PIN 7 must be shorted to Vcc.
Or maybe the SOIC clip problems, anyway let it be for now

We could do it remotely by removing the Absolute modules but if you update the BIOS then it could reactivate it. But we can disable it permanently if you ship it here, so you can update and do whatever..

Send us an email.

Okay, I emailed you.

What's the dollar average for everything?

Remote service is 35 Euro, ship-in is 55 Euro + shipping back to you. I recommend you ship the motherboard here so we can install our DXE patch and turn it off completely in the Nuvoton

I think I responded your email, check the junk box as Yahoo seems to have a bad habit throwing our emails in there.
