A740 Bios update failed

2017-02-08, 21:37 PM

I just tried to update the Bios from the link provided in the Lenovo support website. I get a Rom mismatch error.  The current version of my bios is O00KT16AUS if that helps.  I was giventhis file to update with o14jy19usa.exe

 

Anyone else get this error or know how to fix?

 

Thanks,

Hank

Hi Hank,

The support site shows the Bios 014KT19AUS for your machine. Here's the link,

CB,

 

That is the bios update that fails on install. Since it doesnt match the bios version that it has to be a more current version but is not allowing me to install for whatever reason.

So it looks like the file that is being offered to me for download is for Broadwell bios and I have a Haswell bios. Does anyone know of a link to the bios that is on my machine?

 

O00KT16AUS is what I currently have. I have googled O00KT17AUS through O00KT19AUS and they all exist and come back as A740 Lenovo models. But there is no current download for those bios.

 

Thanks,

Hank
