BIOS Updates not working

2018-06-19, 16:56 PM

Hello, I am having problems with my ThinkCentre M72e. I am trying to update my BIOS because I still have the BIOS version from 2012. I have followed the Lenovo BIOS Update Support Video and none of the ways they explain to update the BIOS has worked. I feel changing my computer specs may have affected the problem with my computer.


Stock Specs:
Intel Core i3-3220T

Intel HD Graphics 2500

4GB Ram

500 GB HDD Storage
Windows 7

New Specs: (Still have ThinkCentre M72e Motherboard)

Intel Core i5-3470

Nvidia Geforce 970

12GB Ram

1 TB HDD Storage
Windows 10

I installed LENOVO Flash Utility "f1jy73usa" to attempt to update my BIOS After installing through the Installer, The program will run and give me the option to Flash BIOS. When I run the program designed specifically for my computer to update the BIOS, it says "The process does not recognize this system. The process has been canceled." It fails to do update the BIOS every time I try it. I may need a special version of the BIOS updater for it to detect my system but I am unsure. If someone can instruct me on how to fix this or send me a link to the correct BIOS updater, I would appreciate it.
