W700 2758-4SU : Impossible to update the Bios

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I purchased a W700 2458-4su.

 

Vista 64bit (Business)

 

2XHDD X 160GB / 7200rpm

2GM Turbomemory

 


And i encoutered a lot of problem.

 

It's really difficult to boot from the optical drive. I tried to change the boot order an put the optical drive in first position but sometimes the computer boot from the cd/dvd or not. This depend if it wants or not !

I burned several cd of different brand but this don't change nothing.

After that, i update the firmware of the optical drive but this don't change the boot problem.

The laptop start WINDOWS or boot from the cd with the same disk.

I tried F12 but with the same result.

I decided to update the bios.

For this i donwloaded from LENOVO the iso image : 7zuj08uc, twice.

I burned 4 cd's different with internal and external cd burner.

When I can boot from the cd (not often) the computer hang. I can see the LENOVO splash screen and after i have a black screen with the cursor blinking at the upper left corner and the computer hang.

 

I really desapointed and i appreciate any help.

 

Sorry for my english but it's not my native language.

 

Marc
