Re: Lenovo L440 - problem with HDD caddy

I ran into this problem today after trying to update bios. Downgrading to 1.82 fixed the problem.

Hope this helps someone else.

Re: Lenovo L440 - problem with HDD caddy

Same problem here with BIOS v1.87. I did not try a downgrade. Is this a bug?

Re: Lenovo L440 - problem with HDD caddy

I have the same problem with my L440.

I can't seem to downgrade the BIOS to 1.82 though:

 

I get this message:
"BIOS image file does not match this system.
The utility process has not completed."

 

I know it's the right BIOS because with 1.87, I get this message:

"BIOS image file is same as BIOS ROM.
An update is not necessary at this time."

 

Any ideas?

L540.  I too have the problem with caddy and "configuration changed" after upgrading the firmware to 1.87 (and no problem before).  It took me forever to isolate the problem and find this post.

 

I can't seem to downgrade the firmware; it says this firmware is not for your system.  If someone has experience downgrading, please explain.

I am at this stage as well, I am so angry, everything was working fine until the Lenovo assistant kept asking me to upgrade the BIOS, I can not seem to roll back either :-(

Re: Lenovo L440 - problem with HDD caddy

I have exactly the same problem, I am running a dual disk system, I am booting Windows off a 120GB M.2 2242 SSD and I have a 1TB 2.5 drive in the main bay for storage. I upgraded to BIOS 1.87 or the latest one and now the system refuses to boot past the "ThinkPad" startup logo if both disk are in the system. It just gets stuck in a rebooting loop that says "configuration change - restart the system". I need both drives in my unit and I can not understand why upgrading the BIOS has now stopped this from happening. I have tried to rollback and install an earlier BIOS version but It will not allow this... It says that the BIOS is not for my machine, even though it was working fine on the earlier version.

 

Did anyone find a fix to this? I am so frustrated here, I am never upgrading my BIOS again, it is just not worth the hassle and causes more problems than what it fixes, the way things are going I will be selling my L440 for parts soon.

The same issue here after upgrading to latest BIOS! This is frustrating to say the least, never again ThinkPad in the future. Thank you, Lenovo!
