• X220/X230 coreboot Installation Service

We flash your Lenovo X220 or X230 laptop with the latest coreboot stable and neutralize IME.

How it works

  1. Order this product and pay the invoice at your earliest convenience;
  2. Wait for the "Payment Received" confirmation;
  3. Please read the notes;
  4. Remove your HDD/SSD for your own security unless you chose the installation service for a new operating system;
  5. Remove all accessory: battery, power supply, cables, docking station etc. You even can remove the keyboard and palmrest if you like/can do that;
  6. Create a note that states the order number and your name and put it between base and lid of your laptop;
  7. Ship the laptop to: 
    Vikings GmbH
    - Installation Service -
    Weststr. 18
    52074 Aachen
  8. We flash your laptop and ship it back to you - from here on you can flash your laptop internally with software (e.g. with other versions of coreboot).


  1. If you're unsure if your RAM will work, please order RAM modules from our store, they are available optionally (for the sake of performance consider using 8GB of RAM). If your installed RAM won't work, we'll contact you;
  2. If you're using the stock wifi card: it won't work without non-free software (or at all depending on the driver/firmware situation); WE DO RECOMMEND!!!111elf!1 to choose the optionally available Wifi card in this case;
  3. Please make sure the laptop is in a normal clean state before sending it in. Alternatively you can order our cleaning services from the options menu.
    Excessively soiled laptops will be returned to you without further processing against deduction of a handling fee of 15 EUR. This and the shipping fee will be deducted from the refund we send in this case. Alternatively you will be asked to order the cleaning service. If you are unsure what is considered "dirty" please ask.
  4. You will receive the laptop in the state of cleanliness you've sent it unless you've selected the cleaning service;
  5. We don't check if your installed operating system will boot and we won't work on your existing OS unless you've ordered us to do so;
  6. The box and packaging materials you send your laptop with should be in good condition: we'll re-use the box you've shipped your laptop with to send it back to you. Please wrap your laptop carefully! If you don't provide for good packaging a 10 EUR fee for a new laptop cardboard box will apply;
  7. If you include a battery with your laptop by accident (see 5. of "How it works"), we won't be able to send it back to you. We'll charge you with a 5 EUR fee for recycling your battery at the recycling station.
