ThinkCentre M710Q can't update BIOS

2019-06-29, 2:23 AM

My M710Q current BIOS version is M!AKT22A, it is too old.

 

 

I read changes.txt of newest BIOS, it made many changes and fixed many bugs, so I want to update it. How can I solve this question.

 

Thanks.

Update using the USB drive method.

 

Create a bootable USB drive (Rufus with FreeDOS), and copy all the files from "m1ajt40usa.zip, USB Drive UEFI BIOS Flash Package".

Thanks for your reply.

I create a bootable USB drive using Rufus with FreeDOS, and all the files of miajt40usa.zip, but it also return the same error "Undefined ROM image BIOS version".

There is a way to force an update, read this long thread to the end:  M92P-Failed-to-update-bios-to-the-latest-version

 

My concern is that your error code is different, and I'm not finding it anywhere else, and I do not wish to see you brick your system.  Which is possible if a BIOS update goes irretrievable wrong.  IF, your system might still be under warranty, a 3? yr warranty, I urge you to open a case with Lenovo Tech Support. 

 

This thread may also be of value, updating with interim steps:  M93p-Tiny-BIOS-update-on-website-does-not-work-on-outdated-systems
