E520 slows/black screen after BIOS update. Can I undo BIOS update?

In preparation for Win 10 key I updated the BIOS on an E520 using the Lenovo Service Bridge.  Os is Win 7 64-bit.  LSB showed old BIOS was backed up.

 

Old bios   LENOVO 8HET30WW(1.12)

 

New bios LENOVO 8HET44WW(1.26)

 

Now bootup and windows start up are painfully slow.  Further there is a black screen in the middle of the wake up process.

 

How can I undo the BIOS update to revert back to Old bios   LENOVO 8HET30WW(1.12)?

 

Or can anything be tweaked to improve the bootup time?

Hello and welcome,

 

The older versions of the BIOS are located at the bottom of the download page:

Thanks!  Noticed there is not a package for 8HET30WW.  Is the next best thing to pick a near version by package number or by 8HETxxWW number?

E520 isn't Windows 10 compatible.

p.s I am running LENOVO 8HET44WW(1.26) on  my E520 with zero problems since release.
