Re:Legion Y530- BIOS problem after update

2020-03-02, 19:48 PM

I also had this problem with the latest 8jcn53ww BIOS.

I updated from v52 and it freezed after the update to the screen posted previously.

I restarted the laptop and it worked. The only problem is although BIOS updated to v53 the EC BIOS remained in v52.

Should I worry? Should I revert to previous v52 BIOS?

What do you suggest?

I had the same problem on Legion Y7000P-1060. The different versions is not normal, especially when Bios updater program couldn't terminate normally. For two last Bios that I successfully updated before, EC Rom had been updated as the same version of Bios. I downgraded Bios and now everything is normal as before. I wrote about it here

If you want to downgrade Bios, be aware, first you have to enter the BIOS, change "BIOS Back Flash" to enabled.

I had the same issue earlyer today, forced shut down and everything looks and works normal. Just press the Power button for 10 seconds. I have a Legion Y530 and I also didn't had any problems with it. The picture with the update screen is below

Thanks! Just to be sure I did downgrade to v52 and everything went smooth. -1 to Lenovo that releases buggy BIOS that cause so much frustration to the end users!

Looks like they hired junior high kids to right thier documentation. 1. System does not auto reboot as instructions stated. I had to watch the flash hook process until it had zero activity. After waiting forever I finally decided to reboot, then I received an updating firmware message on boot. When the loading indicator finally reach max I too got the black screen with the scary message. Thank you all for posting. I would have waited all night before rebooting. Lenovo is a joke!! Please poeple get some technical writers on you documentation team. Its 2020 for gods sake and you still cant figure out how to write documentation for your laptops???!!!
