Hello everyone, I have a Lenovo IdeaPad G500s with Windows 7 x64 notebook and I wish to update my BIOS. The problem occurs when I'm trying to run the setup with following message:
"This BIOS is not for your Notebook PC.
This version of ROM file is not newer than that of BIOS. "
• I have original notebook's battery inserted.
• Battery is more than 30% charged (30% is required for installation).
• My laptop has no previous updates of BIOS.
Current BIOS Version: 7BCN28WW(V 1.11) ID: VILG1
I downloaded this BIOS update from official page that says its for my notebook and supports my OS.
Any ideas what can be wrong?

The new version V38 has been just published - BIOS Update for Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit)
This one should do the job.

Windows must be restarted to WiFi know his time.
