Keep getting BIOS update notifications on my P51

2018-03-20, 2:47 AM

Hi.

I am getting BIOS update notifications every few days lately.

Although I installed the update twice now, I still get the message.

 

In any case, something seems to go wrong during the update,

because the computer does not automatically restart.

 

Anyone else facing the same issue?

Solved! See the solution

Hello,

 

I don't have a ThinkPad P51 myself, but have you tried manually downloading and installing the BIOS update directly from Lenovo's web site instead of using the Lenovo System Update or Vantage applications?  Here is the current version:

 

TitleBIOS Update Utility for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad P51

Version:  1.20; Released:  04 Mar 2018

URLhttps://pcsupport.lenovo.com/uu/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-P-SERIES-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-P51-TYPE-20HH-20HJ/downloads/DS121296

 

Even if 1.20 is already installed, try running the installer just to see if it reports any additional diagnostic messages which might be helpful in further troubleshooting the issue.

 

Regards,

The manual install using the tool did the trick. This time, upon reboot, I got the Flashing screen, and after the flashing was done, the PC rebooted automatically until my Windows login.

 

Thanks again @
