Re: Lenovo Thinkpad L560 - Bios Update from 1.18 to 1.43 fails

2018-08-29, 16:04 PM

Hi,

 

I can't say that it would work any better than an eltorito ISO extraction, but the L560 Windows BIOS exe includes a tool to make a bootable flash drive.  Would require a Win PC or VM and a little fuss.

 

FWIW:

Thanks for that. I have tried the USB maker as well, and that had the same results.

 

I have also tried the 1.21 version and that failed at the same location. 

 

Do you have any other ideas? 

 

Kind regards 

Olaf

I have tried to install the 1.18 again, but that does not work as it states that an "Update is not necessary at this time".

 

Would you have any other suggestions?

 

Thanks a million for all your help.

 

Kind Regards

Olaf
