Lenovo Page for BIOS Update Removed - Need Help

I've got an old thinkcentre (M51 series) and I need to update its bios to make it usable for my purposes. The problem I've run into is that I have no way to access the download, as Lenovo has removed the page containing it. It still appears on google and is listed as http://support.lenovo.com/en/downloads/ds013759, but nothing appears when I open the page. I looked at the product support, and there is no way that I could find to contact Lenovo from there about the page being missing. If anyone might happen to know how I could directly ask a Lenovo employee or if anyone has a link to download the file, it would be greatly appreciated.

The user has a M51 from IBM 2004.

Ibm.com would be your support vendor.

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

Since your M51 is at End-of-Life, you'll need to visit the Lenovo EOL Archive Portal: https://download.lenovo.com/eol/index.html

 

Once you make the proper system selections in the three dropdowns under the Device Driver File Matrix header, you'll be presented with a list of available downloads. There are two BIOS downloads available, dependent on your machine's 4 digit machine type number.

 

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Looks to me like it will work. Thank you. I'll check for sure when I've got time to in a couple days.

I still need to get my hands on an old processor in order to flash the bios, which might take a while. I'll post what happened when I'm done.
