Windows Update claims there is new BIOS version, Vantage disagrees?

2020-08-24, 1:07 AM

System is a Lenovo 11e Yoga 4th gen.

 

Windows Updates under Win10 Feature version 2004 includes the new Optional Updates check which checks all device drivers to see if they have pending updates. Normally this is done through Device Manager, but Microsoft seems compelled to kill off anything associated with the old Control Panel and move it to somewhere in their new Settings menu. 

 

Anyway, under optional updates believes that there is a firmware update available, which it calls "Lenovo - Firmware - 2/26/2019 12:00:00 AM - 1.0.0.17.

 

Vantage claims that there are no pending driver or BIOS updates. According to msinfo32, my current BIOS version is LENOVO ROLET34W (1.19), 10/28/2019

 

Which one should I be trusting? My gut tells me to go with Vantage, given some of the other weird stuff under the Optional Updates menu, but I wanted the community's input.

The versioning of the package that Lenovo uses to distribute BIOS updates through Windows Update may be different than the actual BIOS version. What is the actual model number of your notebook? Vantage might not be reporting the latest BIOS version either - I see newer versions for 4th gen Yogas in the downloads section, but I can't be 100% sure they're for your machine.
