Hello and welcome,

 

I don't think you can update BIOS directly in Linux, but there's a bootable CD BIOS update in the E520 downloads.

 

BIOS Update Bootable CD  (It's an ISO.  Burn it as an image, not a data file.)

Re: E520 BIOS update for linux?

could you tell me if you had succeeded or not? I want to virtualize Mac os but it seems the bios had some bug.
