Current Flash BIOS for P520,P520C missing from catalog

The latest Flash BIOS for the P520/P520C is missing from the LenovoPatch catalog.    I am attaching the details from Lenovo System Update that I expected to find in LenovoPatch for deployment testing.   Searching the Lenovo Support website, this update has been available since 5/27/2019.    Is there a reason that it is not available via Lenovo Patch for SCCM?

We will be working to get this content into the catalog.

Any status on this? I am still not getting this update in the Lenovo Patch catalog.

@skg_002,

 

It appears that this package was not created to give the ability to apply it silently from Lenovo Patch.

There are 112 BIOS updates for a wide range of models and I would think that none of them run silently.

@skg_002,

 

ThinkStation, ThinkCentre, and ThinkPad all have different interactions. 

 

ThinkPad packages, which will be the bulk of the BIOSes you refer to, have the ability for our catalog team to change how WinUpTP.exe is run.  This is at the package level.

 

ThinkCentre (Mx20 series and newer) are now packaging with an updated packaging method to allow our catalog content team to control the way they install through Lenovo Patch.

 

ThinkStation has a different packaging method that calls a bat file to perform the BIOS install, but at this time does not allow us to change the command to force it to run silently.  We are working with that team on the best way to approach this.  I anticipate that we will have some better news in the future around this model and others of its generation, and newer models that come out too.
