The motherboard recently failed on my H535 (outside of the Lenovo warranty but still under my credit card's extended warranty). After a great deal of frustration and time, I was finally able to obtain a replacement motherboard from Lenovo.
I have now installed the motherboard, and it is working. However, upon every boot-up I am getting a POST error with two beeps that reads as follows:
Error 00CE: Machine Type and Serial Number are INVALID
Manufacturing Boot Sequence will be taken if no selection is made
I presume the BIOS on the new motherboard needs to be programmed with the correct Machine Type and Serial Number from my computer.
I have read various things on the Internet about what to do, such as:
- Update the BIOS with a CD-bootable version of the flash utility (I can't find any BIOS entry under the Lenovo support downloads section for the H535, let alone a CD-bootable version)
- Use WinPhlash to modify the DMI entries of the BIOS (I apparently need some sort of BIOS ROM file to make this work, though, which I do not have)
- Use a Lenovo utility (such as 'Hardware Maintenance Disk') for my model (Apparently, these are only available to Authorized Providers, and nobody in my area does this)
- Clear CMOS by disconnecting power and CMOS battery or using some sort of jumper on the board (That seems unlikely to work, so I am avoiding doing that)
