E320 BIOS Update not working "Driver Loading failed"

Hi,

 

i ave an E320 (1298-5QG, i.e. w/out preloaded OS) with a manually installed Win 7/64bit. BIOS version oi 1.11, every time i try to update the BIOS with BIOS setup utility from System Update i get the error message Driver Loading failed.

What can i do to update the BIOS other than by getting en external optical drive to boot from and setup the BIOS from there?

hey elmarjason,

if i'm not mistaken the bootable bios CD is in an .ISO format . what you could do is this and do note that this is a suggestion and not an official method from Lenovo.

download the ISO file .
get this software >> http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/

use the above software to make a USB memory stick to become bootable.

set your unit's bios to boot from USB and in theory; you should be able to load the bios for installation.

Hi Serge1410,

 

i'll try that in the evening (european time), but i have to admit that i gave in and ordered a USB optical drive so if your solution won't work i'll have a backup plan. Smiley Wink
