ThinkCentre M83 fails to boot after automatic BIOS update

I have a ThinkCentre M83, and won't boot after the installation of the suggested BIOS update (by the Lenovo software).
There was no error message during the installation and proceed to reboot by itself. But then, the machine is stuck on the "Lenovo splash screen".

Does anyone have any suggestions for restoring the BIOS ?

Thanks a lot!

First thing you should probably try is look up "ThinkCentre M83 and M93/p Hardware Maintenance Manual", page 291, Recovering from a POST/BIOS update failure. To recover BIOS on a non-booting system you will need the flash bios update written on a CD or DVD and physical access to motherboard to switch a certain jumper.

Thank you YGRIG!

Just to be sure, the BIOS update is the one from the support page for M83?
Flash UEFI BIOS update (CD ISO image version) - FBKTCPA - 12/28/2017
Or should it be another one?

Thanks again!
