Failed BIOS Update on T430

After a fresh installation of Win10 i ran the Lenovo Update Tool to check for missing drivers. There was a BIOS update marked as critical so I installed it. The update was downloaded, the notebook rebooted and started installing the new BIOS. After maybe 10% of progress the notebook shut down. I tried to start it but the only life signs are two series of five beeps and the fans turning.

 

I tried removing the battery pack and the bios battery for some hours, since this seemed to help some of the people with failed BIOS updates, but without success.

 

Do I need a new motherboard now or is there another way to fix this?

Re: Failed BIOS Update on T430

I just saw an old thread here in the forum which I didn't found before. Really seems that I need a new board.

 

As my warranty is over, do I have to pay the repair myself? Because I think I didn't do anything wrong.
