lenovo B590 BIOS H9ET90WW ERROR 234 - SecureFlash verification fail!

2015-05-29, 15:16 PM

Hi there,

 

I've been trying to update my BIOS from version H5ET69WW (the one the laptop came with) to version H9ET90WW , but I' getting error message " ERROR 234 - SecureFlash verification fail! ". I have tried to download the archive several times, to make sure there was no corruption with the download.

 

Any ideas please?

 

Thanks!!!

Same with my Lenovo b490!
Besides, there's no key combination that allows me to get in bios.
https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/b490-BIOS-ONLY-ACCESSIBLE-IN-UEFI/m-p/2047196

The only way I can do it is unplugging the CMOS battery cable.
Very frustrating,

Lenovo makes good hardware but lacks in support, sad.
