ThinkCentre M92p Tiny - Failed BIOS update though Lenovo ThinkVantage - please help

2013-11-07, 5:32 AM

Might someone be able to please assist?  


Ran the BIOS update to version 9SKT75A through the ThinkVantage System Update and the computer now fails to bring up a BIOS screen or load windows.  Looks like the BIOS update failed even though did not interrupt power supply or boot cycle, per instructions.


Looking for the original POST and BIOS update file for M92p Tiny to run the boot block recoery as per Lenovo help article here:  http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?DocID=HT077504.  However, the link within the article to download the file for  'ThinkCentre M92/p, M92p Tiny, M82, Edge 92, E31' is broken.  See here:  http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thinkcentre_bios/9sj942usa.iso 


Does any one have the originial BIOS update file for the boot block procedure for this computer that would be willing to share?


To Lenovo: can you please fix the following link on your help site and make the original POST and BIOS update file available again?  


Thank you,

Problem solved toay,
You need to open your machine. 

Find the cmos clear jumpers.

Move the little cup from positions 1-2 to 2-3. 
Unplug Hard Disk. 

Close the machine. 

Insert a portable USB DVD to a usb port (have a copy of the new bios on the cd) and turn on your machine. 

It will boot from USB DVD drive and it will load the new bios. 

Machine will shut down after the new bios update. 

Open agin the machine, plug the Hard Disk and put back the jumpers to 1-2 position. 

Unplug USB DVD and it will boot from Hard Disk. 

That's all. 

IN OTHER WORDS: Bios update can be done if first you change the jumpers on motherboard.
