We are trying to update the Thunderbolt firmware (n27ti03w) on our P52s laptops via ThinInstaller. They all seem to be failing with "Installation return code: 100". Does anyone know what this code means? The command line we're using is "FwUpdateTool.exe 1 -s".
I have noticed that the installer will not attempt an install if the laptop is not on AC power so that's the best I can come up with at this time. I have verified that the install files are cached locally and that all the files are extracted from the executable. Is there a way to have FwUpdateTool.exe generate a log?
Solved! Go to Solution.

little late but: error 100 actually means "AC not detected or battery is lower than 10%" according to a PDF I received from our Lenovo contact (no download link available).
Note that after I updated the Thunderbolt controller driver on a system I had this error with - although both AC was connected and battery was fully charged - the error was gone.
Correction: I did not update the driver (it already was uptodate) but the actual Docking firmware (it was a Thunderbolt 3 docking, Gen1)! That fixed the issue for me...
