New W510 Bios with some USB updates...

2010-11-16, 19:10 PM

There's a new W510 BIOS: 1.34/1.35.

 

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-74858&medium=rssW510#20101112

 

  • (New) Added support of "Power On with AC Attach" feature at BIOS Setup Utility -> Config -> Power submenu.
  • (Fix) Fix an issue that a USB device is not recognized by Windows connecting to USB 3.0 port.

Nice to see the USB device is getting some love.  Is anyone running this new BIOS?  Can anyone confirm if they happened to fix the power-on issue with USB3.0 port?  That's about the only thing I'd be willing to risk a BIOS update for right now.

Have upgraded it, but did not test the USB problem.

 

Can i know power-on issue, even if the computer is off, the usb 3.0 is still running? right?

Just to confirm -- I've tested the latest BIOS and it will now boot with all the external devices that it used to have problems with. It took 15 months, but nice to finally get this fix.

Thanks for the update, don. 

 

Also, do you update your BIOS using Lenovo's toolbox or the CD/iso method?
