C560 BIOS update problem

2015-04-06, 23:22 PM

When trying to update BIOS on my C560 all-in-one, I get this error message: "Load file: File may not have EC rom"

 

The update files are downloaded from the official Lenovo web page http://support.lenovo.com/pl/pl/products/desktops-and-all-in-ones/lenovo-c-series-all-in-ones/lenovo-c560-all-in-one

 

I have tried to run the update from both the command prompt and the Windows file manager (as the Administrator), with no success.

 

I will appreciate any help.

 

Thx in advance.

 

Aleksander

The error comes because of wrong EC path in platform.ini file!

open the file and find EC_Path=INCT29A.ROM and change it to EC_Path=INCT30A.ROM. Just changing 29 to 30 is enough. then save the ini file and close it. Here you can begin the update. :smileywink:

Hi AleksanderS and SilverTeo,

 

thanks for reporting this.  I've received a confirmation that there would appear to be a problem in the actual BIOS and  the engineers are working to resolve this and release a new version, unfortunately I have no approx. date at the moment.

C560 BIOS update problem

2015-06-16, 19:34 PM

Sorry for bad English

Hi, I have a Lenovo C560 All-in-one. I do not know why, but I have a problem with the update bios although it is available for download. After reading the instructions on how to update bios will my message will appear: Load file: File may not have EC rom. I see the problem there is some time, but as if addressed.

Then I have a problem and slight chaos with driver updates to this computer, Lenovo first time own times, but to this day I did not finish it What is the Lenovo Solution Center program.

I do not know whether to check for updates or watching the smooth running of your computer, but for 1 year you own this computer I have not received even one message about problems or updates. Now the problem with updating the BIOS. I do not know what the BIOS addresses, if I have well understood something about HDD but automatic driver updates by I received more. I hope it will solve at least the bios. Regards Mark
