Re: BIOS update G560 went wrong , please help

if bios version of the machine is higher than 29cn26ww (v2.03) (included), 29cn38ww (v2.15) or other latest ones can be directly updated to. if bios version of the machine is older than 29cn26ww (v2.03), please turn to local lenovo service provider for bios update.

So what ?? is it written it will break the notebook ? and as well why there is no a very simple protection to see if the BIOS version less than 2.03 than software does not apply the update , is it that hard ?

Hi,

I need the BIOS version 1.06 file to use it for reflashing BIOS with USB drive . is there any Lenovo's guy or anybody knows where can i get it ?

I hope it is not a big deal if Lenovo could provide some information on this matter that look like to me is somehow common.

 I think that would be last time I buy anything from Lenovo.

Thanks

@abifar
mark may be busy and usually he gets more than 100 message per day, so it'd be better to be patient for a while.

yeah sure but 5 days waiting is not enough ?? I feel really I hate Lenovo and not only I wont buy again from Lenovo also I spread the word to anybody I know to not buy anything from Lenovo. This was absolutly Lenovo's fault and they do not want to accept they are  responsible for it.

What's DOS?
