[T530] Battery error message won't allow BIOS update in System Update

2017-02-14, 18:22 PM

I've tried many times to install the latest critical BIOS update, using Lenovo System Update, and every time it attempts to, it fails after telling me in a popup that I need to turn the system off and make sure I have a fully charged battery. I rarely rely on battery power and use AC primarily, and I used Power Manager twice to do a full reset, just in case. I can't believe I would need to buy a new battery in order to install it, because the battery works just fine. I'm running Windows 7 (64-bit), and exhausted every other update or option, unless there's something else I'm not aware of. Is it just the software toying with me?

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome

Do not perform the BIOS update from within the TVSU. It's much safer to use CD/DVD and ISO image from the T530 support page.
