Failed to update BIOS 1.32 on T14 AMD

2021-06-04, 10:35 AM

Hi,

 

This morning I checked LVFS as usually and the long awaited BIOS 1.32 update shown. I downloaded it, rebooted system and after passing boot screen with Lenovo logo nothing happened, just a message on the left corner saying "Reset system" and then a black screen. For a few minutes I was scared to death thinking my system was bricked so I pressed power button with fingers crossed and hopefully I could boot to Linux...

 

I checked fwupdmgr again and it showed that the update was not applied. I thought that maybe the update needs the laptop plugged to the AC charger. Normally I have mine plugged to the monitor through USB-C, that also delivers power, but who knows. So I gave it another try but this time connected to the charger and the result was the same.

 

I've just uploaded a report to LVFS that hopefully can help debug what is going on. During the aborted update I was prompted to enter HDD password (as usual) and then happened the message. Maybe I have to temporary disable this password. Can I do so without having to re-encrypt the drive once again?

Same here. Tried upgrading the firmware to 1.32 on my T14 AMD running Fedora 34 using both the Fedora Software and fwupdmgr but after each reboot, I still see the update showing up as if it was not installed.
