M72 Desktop older BIOS

Hello,

 

  I need BIOS for my computer (M72)  from 2012. I recently upgraded to a 2016 version and since then Ubuntu fails to wake up properly from suspend. Do you know where I can find such BIOS?

Try the 2nd to last BIOS release, it's at the bottom of your system's BIOS page.

Doesn't work. I tried both from 2016 and 2017 none works. Believe I need the original one ~2012. Do you maybe know what lenovo did/upgraded/changed since I tried CentOS and fedora none work anymore?

If a prior BIOS update was done from within Windows (called 'Flash from operating system'), and you have access to the system files from back then, then you can rerun that update again.   They will be in a directory: 

C:\SWTOOLS\FLASH\F1JY72USA

with 72 being the BIOS version number.

The instructions for doing a BIOS update also contain a 'summary of changes' section.
