If you dont know dont do it....!!!
I was try to update the Bios on my z580 but i think i made a serius mistake..!!!
I've download only the one file (private) & not both of two files (public & private)
Then i've click the private file to update & ofcaurce the laptop stuck....
Now showing >>Start PXE over IPv6 & nothing
Totaly wrong way to update the Bios

In that case it means that the BIOS is not detecting other bootable media, so it tries to boot off the integrated Ethernet port. Go to the BIOS and check out if your hard drive detects, and set it to boot off the HDD.
I mean, did it show the BIOS update progress or did it just try to boot off the Ethernet port upon reboot?

Not showing the BIOS update progress....just open a black screen & trying to boot from ethernet
First from IPv4 & after from IPv6
Then after some 3-4 min reopen the boot menu

In that case it probably didn't update the BIOS when it never showed the update progress. Go into the BIOS, check the version if it really upgraded and set the HDD as main boot device (or check if the HDD even appears at all).

So....was showing the upgrate progres....
But the problem is that it was in the wrong way
i never download the "publick" file...so in the HDD exist only the "private" file
The correct way is to download both of those files & start the upgrate with the "publick"
Now in the Bios menu show the correct version but the laptop not start...
Product Name IdeaPad Z580
BIOS VERSION 5FCN95WW
KBC VERSION 5FEC90WW
So as you see is already upgrate but in a wrong way
cause in HDD exist only the private file

a) Please remove the serial number to prevent abuse
b) You were supposed to run the public file at first, not the private file based on their description. Since the BIOS update fixes only a probably rare problem, I wouldn't bother to update a BIOS nowadays anyway. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Try and reset the BIOS to default and boot Windows up again. I never heard of such an idiotic BIOS update in 2 steps called public and private, by the way.

The laptop does not start? Does something happen when you press the NOVO Button? That should make a screen pop up where you can select the boot medium and enter BIOS. When even that doesn't happen and nothing else happens (screen staying black, buttons/lights not lighting up, fan not spinning), you can assume that the motherboard is dead due to a faulty BIOS flash.
