Downoad the Hardware Maintenance Manual for your system.   Look for a section titled:   Recovering from a POST/BIOS update failure.

Good day.

 

For reference, here is the HMM: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf

Manual page 290 details the process that BiggAl mentions.

 

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Thanks Biggal & Sarbin. I will need to find POST and BIOS update (flash update) disc. I will update when it got done.

Similar situation solved by Boot block Recovery:

but I am confused when you wrote 'find .. disc'.   The disc is burned (created) using an image downloaded from the Lenovo support website.   Not supplied with the system.

Re: M93P Flash BIOS failure solution

Where did you find the bios update disk? Which files are required on the recovery disk?
