T500 20552CU BIOS Update and Hotfix KB937500

Hello,

 

I am using a T500 with a quite old BIOS (1.13-1.0) and now I want to update it,

 

the installation notes suggest the following:

 

"If you use Windows Vista, before applying this BIOS into the system, you should install Windows Vista KB 937500. The information of KB937500 is located at Microsoft's Web site."

 

But I cannot install the hotfix, the Update Manager tells me that this Hotfix is not applicable to my system.

 

So can I update my BIOS without this hotfix?

Thanks!

*bump*

 

Can I avoid this problem by just using the bootable cd instead of the update exe?

From the information in Microsoft's description of KB937500, that hotfix applies to Vista pre-SP1:

 

 

" Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Windows Vista Service Pack 1."

 

If your system has Vista SP1, that's probably why the hotfix will not install.
