Bios update only for IdeaPad 510S-14 ISK/Yoga 510-14/15 ISK

How can I tell if this update is for my laptop? A message popped up saying I have a critical update and then this message says it is only for these models.

 

Is it safe to say if I get this message then my laptop is one of these models? I can't find specifics within my computer to show if I have these models. I know I have a ideapad flex 4, but beyond that I don't know.

Click the start button, windows admin tools,system information. 7 lines down is your model number and below that is current BIOS name.

State your model number and current BIOS installed.

 

The readme.txt shows  Flex 4-1470, Flex 4-1570 plus  ideapads

You have to scroll to the right to see your machine.

BIOS link above is your machine. You will go from level 18 to level 22.

Re: Bios update only for IdeaPad 510S-14 ISK/Yoga 510-14/15 ISK

I have the same exact message when I check for updates but my Lenovo model is the Flex 4 1580. The BIOS name is 2SCN14WW (v.1.04) 7/25/2016. When I clicked on more details on the BIOS UPDATE 10 (v.2.00) it says ( I copied and pasted this:Flash BIOS update - Flash from Operating System version for Lenovo ideapad 510S14IKB&310S15IKB and YOGA 510-14IKB&YOGA 510-15IKB
Version 2SCN20WW(V2.00)

 

So is this safe to update to?? I assume it's going from level 14 to level 20 based on your reply to the other poster.

Thank You

Was there a solution to this? I've been ignoring this update for some time now because I do not own the models listed. Mine is also a Flex 4. Has anyone performed this BIOS upgrade?

Re: Bios update only for IdeaPad 510S-14 ISK/Yoga 510-14/15 ISK

I'm having the same issue with my Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4-1580 and still can't find the answer of whether it's safe or not to update the BIOS with the recommended one (shown as "BIOS Update - 10 [64]") that is shown as a recommended update in the Lenovo Companion.  The alert message states:

 

"This BIOS is only for Lenovo ideapad 510S14IKB 310S15IKB YOGA 510-14IKB YOGA 510-151IKB. Are you sure you want to update this BIOS on this machine?"

 

Obviously, I am NOT sure which is why I'm here searching for the correct answer.

 

My machine info:

- Model: 80VE
- BIOS Version/Date: LENOVO 2SCN14WW(V1.04), 7/25/2016

 

Please help?

So, if you go  to the drivers section of the lenovo site for flex 4 1570 you can see that it appears it shares the same bios with the 510s http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/FLEX-SERIES/FLEX-4-1570/downloads/DS...

 

I am going to download it directly from the website rather than through the tool which shows the warning message.
