B590 H9ET92WW.EXE ThinkPad Firmware Updater does not work

2020-09-10, 19:48 PM

Trying to update the B590 that I have checked with model and serial number that has the H9ET75WW (1.18) BIOS prerequisite the updater does not work in 64-bit Windows as the logfile indicates the driver does not load.


It is not an OS requirement as I have installed W8.1x64 on the laptop and it still refuses to load the driver.


The utility just refuses to work. Are there any command line switches that can be removed or altered to not check the existing BIOS?


I have tried resetting the BIOS to setup defaults, recommended defaults and making sure the update without supervisor password option is set (there is no supervisor password), ensuring the downgrade option set (and not set).


There are plenty of threads about this but none that have asked to go down this track or maybe update the driver file for one that will load in W10x64 or W8.1x64.


Thanks in advance.
