L390 BIOS update failure

We have two L390 (20NR) that won't update BIOS (1.18) from 1.05. The utility gives error:


Error: Fail to initiate flash.


Error code = 200.


Tried updating via manual download, Vantage and bootable USB.


Bootable USB gives following error when trying to update system program:


The process does not recognized this system.

Re: L390 BIOS update failure



I was able to update to older BIOS version, 1.13. After this, updating to 1.18 was successful. So it seems to be a bug with going straight from 1.05 (in this case) to 1.18.
