the trick is, you have to disable "Secure Boot" in the BIOS before you use the Update Tool.

What are the error messages?

 

What bios version is presently installed in your unit?

Thanks for the reply. The message is just Error, Firmware update failed. Currently have Bios 7CC35WW on windows 8.1. Downloaded the latest from Lenovo but fails to complete.

Since your current bios is 7CCN35WW and the one available from the site is also 7CCN35WW the flash program naturally will generate the error message. If you really want to reinstall the bios you need to edit the configuration file for the flash program. You can use 7zip to edit, decompress or extract the needed file.

If that is the case there might be a problem with the bios file. Why not give tech support a call and inform them about this problem?
