BIOS Update for Thinkcentre M93P

2019-01-01, 13:45 PM

My issue is a bit similar to another post, Thinkcentre M93p desktop BIOS update fail, except that system continues to boot up fine and none of the update methods work:


Here's my command line output when I try manually installing from windows:



Lenovo Firmware Update Utility 4.3.2
(C) Copyright 1984-2012, Lenovo Group. All Rights Reserved.
BIOS ROM file is older than (or same as) the current BIOS ROM image.
Continue any way? (Y/y or N/n only)y
Would you like to update the Serial Number? (Y/y or N/n only)n
Would you like to update the Machine Type and Model? (Y/y or N/n only)n
afuwin.exe imagefb.rom /p /r


Child process failed. Return code: -1073741819
***These changes will not take effect until the system is restarted.***
When I try installing from the System Update tool, it appears to install, the computer restarts, but nothing actually gets installed and I continue to get the same recommended update screen below:
I then tried creating a flash drive by using rufus and the ISO image that is available, but that did not work either.
