Yoga 13 BIOS Update Not in English??

2013-04-27, 2:32 AM

Did anyone else try to download the new Bios update for the Yoga and see that the buttons to select are not in English?

 

I don't know what button to press! Also, does anyone know what the new BIOS update fixes or adds?

 

it says (Important) Enable IFFS and hide the Option in the setup. But I have no idea what that means.

Hi all,

Thanks for highlighting this issue to us. As you may already know we had pulled back the BIOS earlier and got our teams recorrect the language pack. As of today, the BIOS has already been released back to the web and is available for download with the correct language pack. The BIOS can be downloaded below.

I called Lenovo Tech Support about the update.  He said that he didn't know what the update fixed or how to enable IFFS.  He also said they recommend only updating BIOS if there is a problem with the computer.

 

My Yoga is running fine, so he advised me NOT to update. 

 

I asked if the update might fix the when the fan kicks on and off, he said maybe, but he wasn't sure......

 

Hopefully someone can add some more info.

 

Thanks     :smileyindifferent:

I wish there was a Lenovo Rep on the forum that could help us, or at least pass this on to let them know.

Hi All,

I"m really sorry for the inconvenience caused.

We heard you and my teammate NINE has already informed the driver team about it and expect the non-English issue to be fixed. NINE will post here when he has an update.

Best regards,
Cleo

Update....

 

I found another thread discussing this issue and the update, others have installed the update with no problems.

 

I went ahead and installed and it worked great.

 

Only part of the installer is in Chinese, at the first screen, just click the left block, everything else was in English after that.

 

Hope this helps!  :smileyvery-happy:
