Y7000P BIOS Update nuking settings

So I just installed the latest BIOS update for my Y7000P ( Version 9PCN24WW ) and the update seems to have erased all of the settings on Windows and all my programs.  Given that one of the things that got erased was my Administrator password, I kinda freaked out.  Is this normal?

 

Also on the funny side of things, the update uninstalled Lenovo Vantage but seems to have replaced it with DriverBooster 6.

Bios update doesn't touch any files or the OS on a PC. You have a virus/rootkit..

 

Upload 9PCN24WW.exe file to VirusTotal.

Actually, I think I figured out what happened.   The BIOS update seems to have switched the C: and D: drives on my computer, and given that my D: drive is a direct clone of the SSD from my old laptop, it had a valid version of Windows on it which booted instead.
