Update BIOS, should I do or not? please help

dear wise guys,

I downloaded a critical update of BIOS (just bought the notebook so is the first set of updates), but after downloading the following message appeared, and i am not sure if i should go ahead and update because it scared me that may be i could not turn the computer on anymore. 

I think, cant the system automatically check whether my pc is V24 or V25 and only offer the update when appropiate?

bios update yes or no.pngTo the message i responded NO and ended no updating the BIOS but can someone help me take a more critical decision? what is that about If flash to V25, or flash to V24... ? thanks in advance... Valeria

Hi V2V,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

May I know where did you download the BIOS firmware? Are you having issue with the laptop? If not, I suggest not to update the BIOS. Also, if you have a Lenovo Vantage installed on your laptop that software will prompt you to update the BIOS firmware. 

Regards,

Hi JanGab, in the first day after buying this new computer, i checked for the updates and there were 4 in total 3 optional and one critical, being the critical this one for the bios. Then i went ahead with that thinking it was essential. As you say, the vantage software pre-installed in the computer is the one that prompted me to do so...

 Did you end up finding an answer to this? I am having the same problem but with my new Lenovo Ideapad 530s
