Thinkcenter M73 Tiny BIOS Update via SCCM package - how to avoid Press F1 / F2 (0162 error) ?

2018-06-05, 10:44 AM



Have got around 200 M73 Tiny nettops running by production users.

Currently installed BIOS versions are 58 and 61.

We need to update all of them to latest BIOS version 76 due to fixing recent Spectre vulnerability. We need to do this via SCCM.

Tested this simple script:


SPIW032 FHCT36A.bin
wflash2.exe imagefh.rom /bb /rsmb /quiet %1


It works, flashes BIOS and reboot machine, however, after the process finishes succesfully, at BIOS loading phase it displays error 

"0162: Setup data integrity check  failure"


It can be manually fixed by pressing F1 to enter Setup and then pressing F10 to save and exit.

But for SCCM deployment on 200 machines it is not possible.

We can not walk around every machine. And it is not comfortable (e.g. acceptable) if we try to tell our users that next morning they need to press F1 and the F10 to bring their PC back to life.


Is there a way to workaround this annoying error?
