Hi,

 

First day of using my brand-new Lenovo IdeaPad 5 - 14" | Ryzen 7, I got a recommendation from Lenovo Vantage to do a CRITICAL BIOS update to
For a brand new computer?!


I proceeded with the install, till I encountered this very sketchy looking insyde h2off.
Does anyone know if Lenovo uses "inside", and if they do, does the software it really look like this?
Cant seem to find anything from lenovo on this.

 

Not a great start.

Your lucky, My Miix 310 had a bios update, loaded, installed, and now it's killed the machine.Nothing..was supposed to be doing a restart to finish installation, 

Switched off, and now will not turn on, will not power up, dead as the proverbial Dodo...

At least you've got something to check out...

Best of Luck, Looks like I'm going to have to get a new machine, (and it WON'T be a Lenovo, that's for sure!!)

My BIOS update definitely did not look anything remotely like that. Always download BIOS directly from the Lenovo website.

I would not recommend updating) I have the same machine, I have a lot of issues now)

 

The most misfortune is that I couldn't downgrade the BIOS.

 

May be Lenovo make a good update in the future, but now it not worth it)
