Lenovo R61i CPU update to T7500. How to bios update?

Hi.  I downloaded the bootable disk iso and made an image but it was the Ku one for the 14" widescreen r61i.  I've installed a t7500 and upped the ram to 4G which is the max for this older bios.  The older bios gives no boot order selection or anything it just says something about intel boot agent.  It will boot from CD rom(ultra drive).  My bio's date is 2007 on here.  I'm running windows 7 home premium on the laptop.  


Did I download the wrong Iso given I've changed CPU's?  It boots and the menu says "1. read first, 2. Update System Program, and 3. Update model number."  It goes red and says not found and to enter the correct CD in the drive.  Do I need a different bios version than the Ku bootable iso now since it's no longer the original cpu?

Welcome to the forum!


Could you let us know the exact model of your R61i by providing the MTM code? This is a 7-digit code that you can find at the bottom of your laptop, in a black and white sticker.
