update Ideapad Y580 bios 2.03 to 2.07 on Windows 8.1

I have an Ideapad Y580 with bios 2.03 on Windows 8.1. I have the latest 5DCN40WW (2.07) file reading to flash, but want to know if anyone has successfully flashed from 2.03 to 2.07 while running Windows 8.1. Anyone?

Re: update Ideapad Y580 bios 2.03 to 2.07 on Windows 8.1

I need to add this: I have a i7-3610QM cpu. Anyone upgrade from older an bios 2xx to 2.07 within Windows 8.1? I bought this laptop used on Ebay and it came with this old bios 2.03 and Windows 8.0. I upgraded tp Windows 8.1, but noticed the cpu stayed at around 3 ghz with the fan running fast with no load on the computer. Perhaps upgrading to bios 2.07 will fix this problem and make it work properly with Lenovo Energy Management software ver 8.0. I have a 2nd Lenovo Y580 with an i7-3610QM cpu that I bought previous to this. This came with Windows 7 and bios 2.07 from the factory. I upgraded to windows 8.0, then Windows 8.1 with no problems. The cpu ramps up and down in speed properly with Lenovo Dynamic Graphics set in the power plan.
