from the "Hello,
I have been trying to add our company's asset tag numbers to some of our m73 ThinkCentre desktops.
The Model Number is S0JV00
BIOS Version is Lenovo FCKT80AUS
Operating System is Windows 10
I recently updated the BIOS to the current version it is now, like I was recomended from the "Help us help you" thread.
"A surprising number of problems are solved by updating the BIOS."
However, after the update, the asset tag option is still greyed out. I have tried using the CFGWIN.exe comand that came with the FCJW80USA download, like Lenovo recommended but I keep getting
Error: "Enumerate Lenovo_BiosSetting failed. Error Code = 0c80041003"
I also tried AFUWINGUI to try and save the BIOS settings, and then edit them to then re-flash with the updated asset information if that was possible but when I try to open the saved bios file, it opens in wordpad and looks like it is encrypted.
Some sort of step by step process would be the most help, naturally.
This has just been such a hassle. If there are anymore info that could help, I would be happy to add it.
Thank you in advance.

This thread may be of help: M800 & P310 Asset Tag in BIOS

Would these work even if its for M800 and P310, and not M73?
Not sure if you'll be able to read out this attachment or not. but this is what I'm getting

The M73 and M800 are both ThinkCentre desktops, adjacent generation systems, and still getting BIOS updates; but the only way to know is for you to give it a try.

The above link was my best guess at what might work based on the searches I did on the forum. There were other older matches (I searched on "asset tag", on both "board" and expanded to "community") that I considered less likely, but I could be wrong, I have no personal experience with adding asset tags into the BIOS.

I figured it out, so here is my follow up.
(which I advise others to do as well instead of abandoning a potentially useful thread for others)
I was able to download Flash UEFI BIOS update (CD ISO image version) from
and boot into the disk I created.
let it load and a dos command line will show up.
for the asset tags, the command "flash2.exe /tag: _____"
then Ctrl + Alt + Del to reboot. and you can press f1 to check the BIOS for the change.
It takes about 10 seconds and works no computers in a domain.
As far as creating a .Bat file to push this update over a network, I am not sure.
I have only done this on individual computers.
