BIOS Update for Ideapad Flex 4-1470

2018-09-27, 6:23 AM

A BIOS update is recommended for this Ideapad.  However, when I download and open the update, the message is that it is only for Ideapad 510S-14 ISK/YOGA 510-14/15 ISK.  Since I don't want to mess up the machine, should I install this update or not?

Hi Garb84!

 

The BIOS update is compatible to your computer. Based from the "Readme" of the update, it is for systems 510S-14ISK, 310S-14ISK, Yoga 510-14ISK, Yoga 510-15ISK, Flex 4-1470 and Flex 4-1570.

Thanks, but the reason I asked is that the messages are inconsistent.  The message I receive when I open the download is that the updated is "ONLY for Ideapad 510S-14 ISK/YOGA 510-14/15 ISK".  I assume you mean that I should ignore this warning.

I installed the update, although I had to over-ride two warning messages to do so, and the machine seems to be working all right so far.  It is unfortunate that the messages are not consistent, as one is reluctant not to heed warnings on such a fundamental update.

Is your Flex 4-1470 still working ok after the bios update? I'm getting the same warning.
