How do I access/download previous releases of BIOS for Lenovo T430s 2352CTO

2021-07-20, 17:53 PM

The latest version of BIOS update has made my machine unusable (UEFI BIOS has been installed and OS is unable to load).

The plan is to do binary search for a BIOS version that works and use the latest one that works for my laptop. The system is out of warranty.

 

The only one from the download center I am able to see is v2.76 release on 29-Oct-2019

 

I *love* my machine and don't want to give up on it.

 

Please help.

They are at the bottom of the page:

There are sometimes security "firestops" between versions that may prevent rolling back after an update.
