Updated! - Critical Intel Thunderbolt Software and Firmware Updates - ThinkPad

2019-09-05, 14:45 PM

I've been asked to bring the below linked to service tip to peoples' attention; the updates are being distributed through Lenovo Vantage but we do know there are systems which may not have Vantage installed through choice or corporate image policies.

 

If you own / use a ThinkPad with USB-C or Thunderbolt controllers please visit this service tip:

Re:Updated! - Critical Intel Thunderbolt Software and Firmware Updates - ThinkPad

Hi,

 

Configuration is T570 from july, 2017 with Windows 7 64 bit

 

Thunderbolt controler version is 16.3.71.9

 

I check the Critical Intel Thunderbolt Software and Firmware Updates - ThinkPad document

But I can't use any of the available drivers. 

 

QUESTION is: are updates only for Windows 10 ? If not, where are they located (the ones for windows 7)?

 

Thank you in advance

Per the support page linked in the original post, this service tip applies only to Windows 10.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works. I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
