Re:Cant update bios settings. "Failed to save storage: AmdSetup. Status: Write Protected"

2020-10-30, 21:33 PM

There is a new BIOS version available for T14 AMD Gen 1, 1.25 (R1BET56W).  This is what I'm running on my test unit here.  I have seen this problem previously, but it's been a while, and a reboot always fixed it for me.  I know know if it's been permanently fixed in the latest BIOS version or not, but I would recommend giving it a try.

I had to install win10 first to do the bios update (1.05 -> 1.25) but it really helped. Glad there was something already and the issues are gone

 

EDIT: And lets hope its not coming back!

FYI, in the future, you can put the flash update on a USB key and boot to it.  You don't have to install Windows first.

On another Windows machine (or a VM), choose the option to Extract the package (not Install), and then read "Instruction US - BIOS flash USB memory key.txt"

Re:Cant update bios settings. "Failed to save storage: AmdSetup. Status: Write Protected"

2021-10-18, 22:32 PM

today i got my t15 gen2 and wanted to install windows10 -> without success so far (trying now at least 2 hours!),

i cant even change anything in the BIOS because i always get about 16 or 17 ...write protected errors,

even F9/reset to system defaults only works every 2nd time (the other times i get also the write protected errors),

 

i updated the bios to the latest version -> nothing changed, maybe it got worse because before the update i could at least set the graphiccard memory, but now even this results in the write protected error...

 

im really upset because i dont expect such troubles with a 2k notebook,

if nobody can help i have to send it back,

 

any suggestions?

 

Edit1: i have bought the version without an operating system, if this maybe matters
