Lenovo L480 ThinkPad USB-C Dock silent firmware upgrade

I am trying to create a script to silently upgrade the firmware of the Lenovo L480 ThinkPad USB-C Dock in our entire company through network.

I downloaded the exe through here : https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS501903

I have created the script, I used the /verysilent switch in order for the user not to see anything on the screen, but despite that switch, after beggining the tool installation and automatically accepts EULA, at the end i am getting a screen that I have to select Check, Update or About. (chefck attachment 1).

Is there any switch that bypasses that step and automatically clicks the update button?

 

At lenovo support page, at installation instructios for MDT only states the /silent (which is not working for me)

I checked the switches of the exe but i cannot find anything helpful. 

 

Any ideas?

Hi @Dimitris82,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.

 

Unfortunately, we don't recommend creating scripts and other modification of the BIOS as it may affect the performance of the machine resulting of hardware failures. Hoping for your understanding.

 

Regards,

Re: Lenovo L480 ThinkPad USB-C Dock silent firmware upgrade

I understand, but i am not talking about the BIOS. It is an entirely seperate exe only for the firmware upgrade of the docking station.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
