Thinkpad Helix 3701 meltdown/spectre BIOS update fails

Hello all,

 

when running the BIOS update utility with BIOS version GFET59WW from 3/13/2018 I get an error, that the firmware file does not fit the machine.

 

Please support a valid BIOS update for Helix 3701.

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Best regards 

Gerrit

That's the site where the out dated BIOS from 10 Oct 2017 is linked...

Hello leder,

 

Please try changing the support site language to English when you are visiting it (top right corner of the page); the language pages lag a little behind when updates are released.
