In Genesis 1:1 in the Masoretic text, Elohiym has a Hireq Yod.

I assume that there are no Dead Sea Scrolls that have vowel points,
but in the Dead Sea Scrolls,
does Elohiym have a Yod,
which is being used as a vowel-letter for the vowel “i”?

If in the Dead Sea Scrolls,
Elohiym does have a Yod,
which is being used as a vowel-letter for the vowel “i”,
is there any older extant Hebrew text, 
where Elohiym is written without a Yod?
