P50 Thunderbolt Firmware NVM Update?

2016-11-03, 4:29 AM

Hello,

 

I am trying to use a Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (StarTech brand) to connect my P50 to a Resident Audio T4 Thunderbolt audio interface. The device is briefly detected and then disappears. I have been doing some research to resolve this issue and a few users have said that updating thier Thunderbolt NVM to 18 add compatibility with the adapter. 

 

Would it be possible to get an upgrade from the current NVM16 to NVM18? 

Current P50 firmware (NVM16) link here:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-p50/20en/downloads/DS112986

 

I have already attempted to install the NVM18 firmware straight from Intel but it looks like the firmware is OEM specific.

 

Thanks!

I had the same exact problem.  The files are there, but the links have not been widely broadcast by Lenovo.

 

Look at this thread:

I hope that helps.  This problem cost me a lot of time.
