ThinkPad BIOS Flash Update Utility - T460

2019-03-11, 16:19 PM

Hello everyone,
I just bought a refurbished T460 thinkpad. Everything worked perfectly for 10 days, but this morning a window appeared telling me that it was necessary to make a system update: "thinkpad bios update - 7 [32,64] /8.1/10 [64]". after closing all my files and done next, a new window appeared: "ThinkPad BIOS Flash Update Utility.Version 30.16." Please choose one of the following taks, 1- ThinkPas BIOS Update, or 2- Update model number. ". Which of these two options should I choose, and / or should I choose one? I thought I understood that touching bios is something that is rarely done (I had never done it on my previous computer at HP).
I thank you in advance for your help!
Judith

 

 

 

Bonjour à tous,
Je viens d'acheter un thinkpad T460 reconditionné. Tout fonctionne parfaitement depuis 10 jours, mais ce matin un fenêtre est apparue me disant qu'il fallait faire une mise à jour système: "thinkpad bios update - 7 [32,64]/8.1/10 [64]". après avoir fermé tout mes fichers et fait suivant, une nouvelle fenêtre est apparu: "ThinkPad BIOS Flash Update Utility. Version 30.16. Please choose one of the following taks, 1- Update ThinkPas BIOS, or 2- Update model number.". Laquelle de ces deux options dois-je choisir, et/ou dois-je en choisir une. J'ai crus comprendre que toucher au bios est quelque chose qui se fait rarement (je ne l'avais jamais fait sur mes précédants ordinateur chez HP). 

Je vous remercie par avance de votre aide!
Judith

Hello Judith,

 

Select the ThinkPad BIOS update option.  BIOS updates do happen from time to time.  Some users choose to not update, but from the readme it appears that the latest update includes a security fix - so it's probably a good idea.

Once in a great while a BIOS update goes awry and causes serious problems.  I've never had that happen but YMMV.
