Critical Intel Thunderbolt Firmware on T480 Running 1903

2019-11-26, 16:48 PM

Grettings all,

 

In our enviornment we've been fighting an ongoing battle with monitors flickering on our T480 and T490 computers using Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 docks. To try and remediate this we've been installing the updates posted in https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/sk/en/solutions/ht508988.

 

On the T490 models, we've been able to update the laptops without issues as the firmware will run on any computer running Windows 10 1809 or later. For our T480 computers, however, you can only update the firmware on computers running 1809 or older (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/sk/en/solutions/ht508988). We are currently in the process of rolling out Windows 10 1903 to our users so this is a pretty major obstacle in troubleshooting issues with docks. Is an update planned for this firmware package to acomidate newer Windows 10 operating systems and if so is there an estimate with regards to when it will be released?

 

Solved! See the solution

I'm aware of this problem with the thunderbolt firmware packages that are only for Win10 1809 and older.  I have asked the ThinkPad team to fix these packages to add support for Win10 1903 and newer.  I don't have a fix date yet, but I just wanted to let you know that I have requested it.  Sorry for this problem.
