Lenovo Thinkpad P1 UEFI issue

Hello there,

 

I would like to buy Lenovo Thinkpad P1 - but I found tihs https://www.notebookcheck.net/Some-recent-ThinkPads-can-be-bricked-by-changing-a-UEFI-BIOS-setting.3...

 

It seems there is a solution(very difficvult) through raspberry pi - but the details are not described  ... https://www.notebookcheck.net/ThinkPad-UEFI-failure-Experienced-users-can-repair-their-laptops-with-...

 

 

Do you know guys is it actually or no?

There is any bios update which can fix this issue?

 

 

Thank you very much.

Welcome to the Community

Yes, the issue has been resolved in BIOS update v.1.15, 16.11.2018

Have a look at the update history (Version information section).

p.s. Please, do not post the same question on different boards. Thanks
