I downloaded the bios update file and  when I'm trying to run the setup file in windows 7 home basic, it displays a message "needs elevation" .  


What do I need to do?



BIOS Updates must be installed by running as administrator.  This is explained in the associated text file which is grouped with each BIOS to download.  Many users only download the BIOS and fail to consult the text.



Lenovo recommends shutting down and restarting (cold boot) prior to running the flash utility.


To run the utility:


Right click the application and select "run as administrator"
