Ideapad 320 81BG BIOS bricked - Need Filnename for Crisis Recovery

2020-08-01, 8:04 AM

Hi there,

 

after the last BIOS Update my Ideapds 320 81BG Bios is bricked.

 

I found some instructions on the net. I found out that i have an insyde bios that need a specific filename on an USB Stick for the Crisis recovery. 

 

Can somebody tell me whats the filename? i was unable to find it out.  Lenovo Mail Support was not helpful. Only answer was "send it to a repair station".

 

Any help will be appeciated. 

 

Thanks.

 

Regards

Sascha

Hello,

 

Have you tried the novo button?

 

Using that you might be able to start a bootable system recovery/system repair USB image.

 

If you can somehow boot into Windows, then use Lenovo Support pages to reinstall the correct BIOS.  Lenovo Vantage software provides an easy way to find the exactly correct Bios version.

 

Sincerely,

Usedtoberich

Hi, I have the right version. But for insyde bios crisis recovery the file must have a specific filename. There is a tool for that but that only says inside uefi bios. Novo Button is not working. Regards Sascha

Hello,

 

From my small experience the only way to install BIOS firmware  is from within Windows using the Lenovo .exe file.

 

Perhaps a professional repair shop will have special software to directly load the new bios file into the bios firmware.

 

However to prevent nefarious attacks, Lenovo motherboards and bios firmware may only recognize a Lenovo specific program, hence the suggestion to send the computer to Lenovo repair facility.

 

I am in USA, I would try using the repair team at my local electronics store, that sells lots of Lenovo computers,  first.

 

Is there anybody else who has expertise in this matter?

 

Sincerely,

Usedtoberich
