Can I download BIOS updates from any region?

Question

I bought an Edge E520.. I expected the BIOS language to be Japanese but it's in English, which is what I want.

 

I want to update the BIOS but I'm afraid the one from Japan Lenovo's site will change the language to Japanese. 

Answer

Yes you can.

 

From http://www.linfo.org/bios.html:

 

"The BIOS is usually written in the assembly language of the CPU used in that computer. An assembly language is a human-readable notation for the machine language for a specific processor; machine language (also called machine code) is a very basic programming language that provides instructions that can be read directly by a processor."


It is recommended that users download the ISO disc image and burn the image to a CD before booting from the CD to run the update.
