How to update G560 BIOS from version 2.02?

I have this G560 with BIOS version 2.02. The Lenovo site says their downloads are only for versions 2.03 and later; to update earlier versions you have to use "local support." (Which is ridiculous.) I saw a post somewhere where someone had version 1.05 and was advised to go ahead and download the latest version; he did it and his machine refused to start after that.

Does anyone know how I can get BIOS updates for this machine? 

Thanks a lot.

H ibob-o92,


Welcome to the community forums.


Please check first the bios version. 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. Here are the steps on how to check the BIOS version


You may check the BIOS updates using this link
