Re: ThinkPad P50 won't boot on Workstation Dock after BIOS update to v1.43

Dear customer,

development team identified the previous solution wasn't sufficient for Oculus VR device so that they are preparing another solution. Hopefully the solution will be ready for the web by end of Sept.

Re: ThinkPad P50 won't boot on Workstation Dock after BIOS update to v1.43

Hello,

 

Just to check, you are using the ThinkPad Workstation Dock 230W, is that correct?

 

The reason that I ask is that at the bottom of the page I linked to there is a Firmware update for the dock (Version 2.33.000, released 6 Jan 2017).  If you have not already done so, you may wish to try installing it to see if it makes any difference.

 

Regards,

Dear davidbeaty,

have you applied the BIOS v2.26 or later version on your P70?

Re: ThinkPad P50 won't boot on Workstation Dock after BIOS update to v1.43

I'm having the same issues on my P51. Any update on the fix?

I had the booting up issue when my external monitor was attached, and made due by disconnecting the monitor cable prior to booting up. But I gave up on using my external monitor a few months back when that fix stopped working. But now I'm having the same issue as discussed above when only my laptop is docked.

 

These issues seem to occur whenever there is a BIOS update.

My current info;

BIOS:N1UET74W 1.48
SMBIOS version : 3.0

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks
