Re: anyone having trouble with updater 5? 5.00.0019 has been released.

2012-10-19, 2:25 AM

I tried it today and now it works for Windows 8!

 

However, not all updates available from the Support page are shown in the System Update (I get only two updates - Active Protection and Card Reader, although I am also missing fingerprint driver, power management driver, Intel Rapid Storage, etc., which are available on drivers page after selecting correct machine.)

 

 

EDIT: I looked on the XML catalog of updates (drop the "_DESC" part in links in my previous post) and:

 

- not everything available on the Support page is in System Update catalog, e.g. video driver seems to be missing (although the latest video driver for W520 from support.lenovo.com broke my Windows 8 (after choosing Desktop in Metro after login, the screen blinked and I was logged out) and I had to install drivers from nvidia.com in safe mode!)

 

- some software is there, e.g. fingerprint software, but it is not detected on my machine as missing

Thanks - the catalog is now available, it appears.

 

On my X1, I was offered a critical fingerprint software patch and an optional active protection driver update.  I had thought I had both of these in place, but I'm installing what is offered...

update:  Fingerprint software patch installed, but had to be done manually.  The active protection software failed to download in half a dozen tries, so I went directly to the web site, found it, downloaded and installed successfully.

 

So--either the download manager or the infrastructure providing the files needs some tuning, but I'm please with the progress!

Experiences vary.

 

I'll point out, however, that the last machine whose bios I updated via System Update (4)--required motherboard replacement (fortunately, under on-site warranty.)  The update failed, and all attempts to encourage it to boot from a bootable bios-update CD failed as well.

 

My policy from here out will be to only update bios's via cd's.  I've certainly done dozens of bios updates from within windows on various machines without incidents, but when one does go wrong, the recovery process is sometimes far more complex than you might hope...
