I've just bought a brand new 530S notebook, and I would like to update its BIOS, but the wizzard fails quietly.
1. I dowloaded the latest BIOS from the official page
2. execute 7pcn39ww.exe, using the default path (C:/BIOS/7PCN39WW)
3. when the wizzard finishes, 7PCN39WW.exe starts, and Windows asks permission to make changes on the system - which I give
4. the window closes, and nothing happens.
After restart, when I open the BIOS, I still see an older version (7PCN29WW).
How can I update the BIOS on a brand new 530S?

Welcome to the Lenovo forum discussion.
You can use the Lenovo vantage app https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht505081?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6 to install the latest BIOS firmware on the laptop. Let us know how it goes.

How can I update the BIOS through the vantage app? I assumed it is in system updates, but it does not list any update for the BIOS (only for WLAN, Chipset, and Serial-IO drivers)
