Lenovo bios updating tools dating ex husbands brother ilegal
Updating BIOS is the easiest way to gain the new functions, enhance the stability of BIOS and fix some bugs of the former version.
This post aims to introduce 3 Lenovo BIOS update utility to help Lenovo users improve the performance of their computer.
You must read the Lenovo website and/or files to confirm which BIOS is compatible with which ECP, and the order in which to update them. Use F8 to abort the boot sequence of a windows 98 boot CD.
The Lenovo/IBM documentation is sometimes unclear about the order in which these two firmwares should be updated. IBM didn't provide specific instructions for your model or a particular firmware update), update the ECP first, and then the BIOS. If you need CD-ROM support, load CD-related things but say no to everything else.
Updating the BIOS in Linux (with few exceptions) is not officially supported by Lenovo. By following any of the instructions here you are accepting the very real risk of turning your Think Pad into a big expensive paper weight, as a firmware update gone wrong can create unfix-able problems. A user on Notebook Review named 'Middleton' made these alternative BIOSes to enable SATA2 on certain Thinkpad models (X61/T61/R61/X300). "geteltorito" is available in Ubuntu (at least in Trusty, 14.04) from package "genisoimage".
These Think Pads are limited to SATA1 in their BIOS even though the hardware is SATA2. So, even though Lenovo is now offering "Linux diskette" updaters, that will create a bootable floppy under Linux, using a floppy is still not recommended.
