Update BIOS and ECP

2021-04-29, 12:43 PM

To fix the problem with the fan in my P15v, I would like to update to the latest BIOS and ECP version. According to the reboot message, something is executed there (Found update, Adding new capsule...), but the BIOS and ECP version always remains at the old state afterwards. This is 1.05 for BIOS and 1.06 for ECP.

 

How can I update to the current versions 1.19 and 1.14 for the device?


I use Linux Mint and also the update via fwdupdmgr update led to no success.

Hello holthaum,

 


Welcome to Lenovo Community

 

 

The best way to update the drivers and BIOS is to go straight into the support site, enter your computer's serial number and it will show the available updates for your machine. Just follow the remaining instructions.
Update us how it goes

Thanks. I tried downloading this version before, too. Andi followed the linked instructions. The version remains the same. Where do I find older firmware updates do start an update one by one? On the support page I can always see the newest version which isn't applied to the system properly.

I suggest that you share the machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help us detail more about your machine variant.

Older BIOS versions may no longer be available as the latest would be the certified version intended for the machine.
 
Would the update utility and bootable BIOS have the same update issue?
 
Checking on the Linux compatibility matrix shows P41v have Ubuntu 20.04 as recommended distro.
