I have a Lenovo Legion C530 PC with BIOS v. O3LKT21A installed and having problems updating to O4BKT08A.
I downloaded the file, run as administrator, the PC restarts in BIOS, flashes the update and restarts again in Windows.
But it has not updated and is still O3LKT21A. Now when I try to update again (freshly downloading the update) it tells me that I am trying to install the same or older Bios.
In the unpacked folder from the bios update download I see there are 2 image files - Image 3 and image 4.
When i start the update in CMD it tells me it is detecting image 3 and tells me this is the same or older bios - see pic.
So im not sure if there is a problem with the actual bios update itself - perhaps containing the old image as well as the new one.
Or if there is a problem my end.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for reaching out.
We would like you to open the BIOS of the machine and check the version of the current installed BIOS under the Information tab.
We'll wait for your update.

Thanks for your reply.
I realise that my bios was O3LKT17A and is now O3LKT22A.
Also I got a reply from Lenovo service - they say that it is normal behaviour. The unit has been shipped with the initial BIOS version O3LKT17A so it needs to follow up with installing the O3L... stream.
The other O4B... stream is designed for a different variation of the same model.
Once a new BIOS update with the O3L stream is tested and released, it will become available on the support website as well.
So I think its ok, but definately not clear in the downloads section which shows the driver applicable to my machine - though it may have updated from O317 to O322.
Does O3 and O4 relate to the age of the board? I just bought this and its the high end model which makes me wonder why its O3, not O4, though also understand whilst my logic might be sound that might not be the reality. Interested in your understanding.

The BIOS version installed on each machine differ not because you have an older machine.
The BIOS version differences pertains to different options that are available for each machine-model.
This doesn't mean that you do not have a high-end model it just means that you have different versions.
Hope this clears things up.
