Problem updating mt BIOS on Windows 10, Please help!

2017-01-19, 18:11 PM

Hello

On the process of updating my BIOS, after downloading "Flash UEFI BIOS update (Flash from operating system version)" and opening the readme file, i came across a dificulty that im not able to continue my process.

(https://us.download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_bios/fbj9ccusa.txt): readme file

So, i did everything correctly untill the step 2 of the "Installing the Package" process, basically when a put the command (

"cd C:\SWTOOLS\FLASH\FBJYxxUSA\"

)

on the Prompt, appear a message saying: "iit not recognized as an internal or external command"

I already changed the path on my Computer properties, but nothing seems to work out

If someone could lend a hand, i would aprecciate a lot. Thanks!

Btw: im using windos 10

https://gyazo.com/33367d1e74576f72ace4236867258266: sorry about being in portuguese, i really dont know how to make it in english, just in case someone wants to see what appears

Edit 1: my pc is a desktop M93p

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome,

 

Looks like you're leaving out the "cd" in that command line.  cd - change directory - is the command.  what that follows is the path to the directory.  You need the whole line, including the cd.

I suggest you download the CD ISO (.iso) file, burn a CD, and bypass Windows for the update.

This thread may help:  M92p - How to access & update the BIOS

 

Google for M93p, bios.  Burn a CD with the "CD ISO image" (.iso file), restart the computer with CD in, and follow the on-screen directions.  Answer no to changing the system model number or serial.
