what is Lenovo Ltd. - Firmware - 1.0.0.0 ? (installed on windows updates)

2021-06-02, 7:42 AM

I just did a clean install from my lenovo USB reinstallation/recovery media and everything turn out great but during windows update, and this update wasn't showing up before my clean install, I looked in the "view updates" under windows update and under the "Drivers" list it show that "Lenovo Ltd. - Firmware - 1.0.0.0" was installed on 6/1/2021.

 

What is it and why would it just show up after a clean install ? I googled it and can't find anything. I don't know if it is just showing in the list under that date because I did a clean install rather than a reset but in the case that it was just installed after I used my recovery supplied recovery media, I'm really wondering why and what was just installed being that it says it's a firmware update ? 

 

I went through Lenovo Vantage to check and download all Critical and recommended updates first and no Bios or firmware showed up in there, just a few others that must have been wiped during this install, but then I hit windows update and a bunch of updates came up and that was in the list. Can anyone tell me what this is and why it's listed under "view updates" and under the "driver section?"  I didn't hit-nor do I ever chose to install updates from the optional menu, this was inevitably coming up through regular standard windows update in settings.

Hello,

You did not mention the type and which machine type model (MTM) of ThinkPad this behavior occurred on, but perhaps if you go to https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/, and enter that information, you can review all of the downloads in the Drivers & Software section.  There may be a firmware update listed there that has not been released to Vantage, yet.

 

Another possibility may be that it was not a firmware update itself, but rather the driver software used to interface with and update the firmware over Microsoft's Windows UEFI Firmware Update Platform.  That is the type of software I would expect to be downloaded during the first update after loading a fresh copy of the operating system.

Hi biggie777,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

 

It's firmware drivers distributed through partnership with Windows Update. See Microsoft Update Catalog.

This is quite normal.

 

Regards

Thank you, I accept that though it leaves me with the question on why it would show up just after a fresh clean install when I had been running the latest version of windows and had updated everything beforehand ? What sense that this integrated type update would not have already been there as it has been around for quite awhile now ?

 

firmware implies a permanent update that should have already been there in a fully updated system, then when I do do a fresh install using the USB created copy of my factory installation  - updates will be expected but not firmware, isn't that right ? This is like doing a factory reset or clean install and then having a bios update automatically come through windows update that was already updated. That's the part I don't understand and would like to.

Thank you. I believe you have the answer, that it's the Windows UEFI firmware update platform that's happening here.

 

Thank you sir !

Hello,


Sometimes you may need to reload the page in order to see the "thumbs up."

EDIT: Ok, I figured it out. It seems that you can't "thumbs up" someone in your own thread. I tried doing it in another thread nothing to do with mine and it worked!
