X250 And Spectre/Meltdown - Cannot Automate BIOS Update

We are attempting to automate the BIOS upgrades to address CVE-2017-5715. This has been no problem thus far on our other Lenovo models that have released updates. However, with the X250 (both touch and non-touch) we receive the following error: 

 

 

error 180 - bios part numbers do not match

 

It actually does not matter what version of the BIOS we try to flash, lower or higher. The embedded controller will update through the automation but the BIOS will not.

 

The weird thing is if you manually run WINUPTP64.exe it will update without issue. This is not a realistic solution with the number of devices we have.

 

I will say that our X250s have an OEM only BIOS version installed which I suspect might be the issue?

 

 

  1.19                  1.19 (N10ET40W)      1.13 (N10HT14W)   For factory use

I'll add that this BIOS version is on at least 435 of our X250s.
