G580 BIOS update - Error 255

I can download the BIOS update here just fine: http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/62cn97ww_64.exe

 

But when I run it (as an administrator) I get the pop-up message "Error 255 - TDK Library Initialization Failed" and then it quits.

I had the same problem but I Found a solution to it.

1. Press Winnows + R

2. Type msconfig

3. Click on Diagnostic Startup

     Restart

4. Now Launch the bios Update

 

Repeat step 1 and 2 then click on Selective Startup. Reboot.

No luck; I've tried this and every other advanced startup option in Windows 8 (safe mode, debugging, command prompt, etc.), and always get the same Error 255 pop-up .

Re: G580 BIOS update - Error 255

I managed to update BIOS to version 5ECN96WW (V9.01), but all subsequent updates keep throwing that error...

 

Just got from the phone with tech support... according to them, BIOS updates are not supported for this model. the only way to get it updated is to have the Service Center do it... then I started hearing numbers that I need to pay, to make this happen Smiley Very Happy

 

Hope, someone else finds a workaround!

Re: G580 BIOS update - Error 255

Hi! I've got the same problem. I think that we can't update the BIOS because we have Windows 8.1 and the BIOS update, which is in http://support.lenovo.com/en/downloads/ds036553, is just for Windows 8... There are no BIOS updates for Windows 8.1 at Lenovo's page.
I've been reading other forums and people said that they had updated the BIOS with Windows 8; then they updated Windows 8 to 8.1 and the BIOS stopped working.
Regards.
