I would like to ask anyone here if you guys can help me with the Bios update 2014 5FCN95WW private/public installation.
Here's what I did:
All was fine on my Z480 when I came from W7 Ultimate to W10. Then I notice after 3 months that some online games can't be played with W10 so I decided to go back to W7 Ultimate. So I did a clean installation of W7, My Bios version is 5FCN95WW 2012.. So I checked some updates on the web of Lenovo and found 2014 but with the same code of 5FCN95WW... I wonder why, so I download it and install, it restarted my pc and I thought all is okay, but when i checked the System Info it's still says 2012..
Now, my brightness adjustment using Fn+ up and down arrow keys is now having some issues. It wasn't there before.. Everytime I adjust the brightness, The Bar that shows on my screen is not calibrated or not accurate. It adjust by 4 rows each time i press it, so from high pressing the down button just once it drops to 4 bars and pressing it again shows no highlighted bars anymore but the brightness of my screen is still the same.
I uninstall Energy management and restart my pc and reinstall it again but still the same. My Fn+f4 and Fn+F1 are also not working anymore..
I tried to flash the Bios I downloaded from the web but I am getting an error saying "Error: 182 - BIOS Image is equal or older than ROM"..
I went on the bios settings to ENABLE the Bios Flash configuration. Then restart and try to install again but still the same error. I checked the system info and still saying the same sht.. It's 2012.. So now I dont know whats going on..
I am still googling some answers on any forums but not getting any answers. I am trying to fix this issue for 3 days now, and I feel like I am losing my mind....
Can anyone help me pls???. :'(
I don't know if I need to reinstall the 2012 Bios update that was on the lenovo site before but now its gone..
If anyone from Lenovo Family out there is online pls HELP!!! :'(

Did you ever get an answer to your question about ERROR 182 - BIOS image is equal or older than ROM!

Heyah!, well to be honest, I didn't continue the installation of the new BIOS update.. You know why?.. Coz it has a lot of glitch.. So I went to downgrading it to the old Bios version. So if i were you and your using Z480 DO NOT UPDATE YOUR BIOS... It will make your PC FN malfunctions.. Even Brightness and other FN.
Stick to 5FCN35WW 8/3/2012 update.. It is much better than the new update..
