530S-15IKB BIOS update fails quietly

I've just bought a brand new 530S notebook, and I would like to update its BIOS, but the wizzard fails quietly.

 

My steps:

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?

Hi zsoltn! 

 

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)
