Recently, a friend of mine paid me a visit with a few of his ThinkPads. Over a course of a weekend, I’ve prepared a SPI flasher based on flashrom and a Raspberry Pi and flashed a few ThinkPads. Besides my rage that was mostly a result of badly written libreboot and coreboot docs (things are hard to find, a ton of the info is outdated, etc), I came up with an idea for corebooting my own X200.
This is not going where you think it might be going.
* apply a Windows 95 UI to Windows 3.1 using Calmira *
…but seriously, I was one of those people that greatly preferred the Windows 3.1 user interface over the Windows 95 UI that has been so prevalent for the past couple decades. Something about the taskbar and having a little icon representing the windows on the screen in addition to, you know, the windows on the screen never quite clicked with me.
Anyway, this was a fun project to read about. 🙂
