so the system has been nagging me to install the critical bios update of v126.96.36.199 but i'm afraid that it will stop in the middle of update and ask for the BIOS password. I wouldn't be able to provide a correct password and will have to reboot to exit.
most probable case afterwards; the laptop will not boot into windows as it thinks the update has not finished.
Can lenovo support help me out on this? will I just not install any bios update anymore on this laptop?

Welcome to Lenovo Community!
If you set BIOS password in your system then it’s mandatory to enter correct password while BIOS updating process.
I hope the above information helps.

There is no backdoor password. The only choices are remembering the password or replacing the motherboard

But if password is set, but windows when starting without bios password needed. And if new bios update install, password would be required or just update bios and just be the same: when open bios and want to change something - password required, but if just windows starting- no bios password (like now)?
