Unable to set asset tag number in bios 1.17 on Thinkpad Yoga S1

2014-09-24, 22:44 PM

Hi I have a bunch of Thinkpad Yoga Machine Type 20CD002UUS and I've been trying to set the asset tag in the bios.  According to support I can use this tool: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-yoga-series-laptops/thinkpad-yoga/20cd/002uus/downloads/DS039503

 

It was working great on a bunch of machines and then just stopped.  I realized the only difference was the bios version.

On the ones that WORKED the bios is 1.16, the ones that DO NOT WORK are bios 1.17.

 

Has anyone has this issue?  It doesn't say anything about the BIOS version being an issue, but it's realy annoying.

 

Anyone have any pointers?

 

Machines are running Windows 8.1 64 bit

Solved! See the solution

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

Sorry you're having difficulties.

Looking at the v1.17 BIOS readme: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/gquj12ww.txt

I see one item that may be related, stressing "may":  "(New) Improved the UEFI BIOS security feature."

 

Wish I could offer more.

Regards.

We are having the same issue with Thinkpad S1 Yoga 12.  Bios 1.07.

Using the WINAIA tool to set asset tag info we get the following error. "User information area is too small to contain the requested information"

 

Have you made any progress in this?

Sorry OP, the above fix is for the ThinkPad Yoga 12, but I do not see a fix related to the ThinkPad Yoga S1 at this time.
