I've tried installing the update mentioned several times, through System Update, through Lenovo Vantage, and through the provided link and just get an error stating that I have the wrong model.
 

0x21D SDKMODELMISTMATCH The image file is for another product model. 

 

I have a T570 running windows 10.

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

I'm having a Thunderbolt update problem with v1.1.11.18-N2ITF13W on a P53S,  Vantage tells me I need to do this Thunderbolt firmware update, so I do, and it appears to go ok. The machine reboots, and the Vantage update history shows it has successfully installed.  But if I check for updates again, it again tells me I need to do the same update.  I've installed the update three times, each time apparently successfully, and it still shows as needing to be installed.  Can someone (anyone) tell me what I need to do?  The best I got from Lenovo on the phone was that it was a problem with Vantage not recognizing that the update had been done, and a new update to Vantage would fix it.  But there was a new Vantage update yesterday on the Store, and nothing has changed.  So apparently that wasn't the correct explanation.

 

If it matters, I'm on Windows 1909 Pro.

 

I should also say that v1.1.10.16-N2ITF12W installed successfully on 15 March, and did not appear thereafter when I checked for updates.  So something has gone wrong since then.

 

Any ideas? Any suggestions?

 

Thanks for any help.

THIS SUCKS!


Sincerely I am loosing my patience with this. 

Tried everything. I bought a **bleep**ing new motherboard because my other one was not even charging neither booting with the ac connected. Now with the new board I can't upgrade the **bleep**ing firmware because the thunderbolt is not recognized. 

 

It also complains about ac adapter low wattage. I am trhowing this **bleep** in the garbage and buying a dell.

Having a T480. Always shows that "low wattage adapter is attached" and the system doesn't charge at full power. It's irritating. tried to install the thunderbolt firmware given in the following link.
https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/sk/en/solutions/ht508988

 

But no use. No thunderbolt driver is showing up. (thunderbolt driver version N/A)

@drarunnano have you tried plugging some thunderbolt device before running the installer?
