[Y510P] Update BIOS problem

2014-03-20, 19:08 PM

Hello

I'm from Poland and I have big problem. I must update by BIOS to install Linux Ubuntu. I have Window 8.1 .

I'm download the official BIOS update from the lenovo site. I extract this files. I click on NVFlash.bat

And there's my problem... The console run for max 3 second. In this time there's a inscription: " Invalid display adapter 

index specified " or something about this.

I have 2 video card:

- Nvidia GeForce GT 755M (I download for this)

- Intel HD Graphics 4600

The Nvidia card is current and Intel can't take a update. (There's problem with install)

Sorry for my bad English. I'm from Poland...

According to this link of the download site for Y510P there are no bios update available. What site are you talking about that contain the bios update?

Hi
Welcome to the forum!!
The link you provided is not the computer's bios update but the v bios update(video bios).
And i believe it is for sli only, the second vga.
The reason it doesn't install is that your laptop doesn't have a second gpu and sli feature(correct me if i am wrong).
And vbios and bios are both different.
Hope this helps!!

So you're talking about the second vga card's bios (vbios). If you don't update the bios you can't install ubuntu? Perhaps your problem can be better address in the Linux forum?
