Lenovo Ideapad 310-15IKB BIOS update problem

I downloaded the Lenovo System Update checker (TSVU) then I searched for updates for drivers and found an update for BIOS, but when I install it, the error in the screenshot occurs.

Hello JigSaw_Eg

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


I could be in the wrong here, so please someone do correct me if I`m wrong.

I think you have to convert your disk to GPT, for some reason this is what comes to mind with BIOS update problem.

 

Different methods of doing this:

Well, if there are no actual issues with the unit, then there is not much point in updating the BIOS, as yes it can easily brick a unit.

 

Don`t fix whats not broken.

 

Do you have any other issues with the unit at all?
