Thunderbolt 3 Firmware Update Tool Error 0x20B

2019-09-19, 12:48 PM

Having issues with updating Thunderbolt firmware.  Now that the new version of the FW update tool is out, I've verified that I'm on the latest driver version, but when I run the detect tool, I receive the following error:

 

Capturing Current NVM Version.....

Capturing Current NVM Version failed!

Error: 0x20B SDK_NO_CONTROLLER -

 

If I run the update tool itself, I get a popup stating that no controller driver is found and I need to install the software and connect a Thunderbolt 3 device, then click OK to proceed or click Cancel to cancel the firmware installation. 

 

The problem is that the only Thunderbolt 3 device I have is my docking station, which doesn't work, because of the "botched" firmware update tool that was released in early September.  Seems I'm in a catch-22 with no way out.

Hi Tordormore!

 

Welcome to Lenovo Forums, We'd like to know the current version of the Firmware in your Thunderbolt 3. You may manually download the version V10020 from our support website and observe if you'll see any changes.
