Thunderbolt Firmware update on T580 not working - SDK FILE NOT FOUND

2018-11-02, 11:39 AM

I would like to update the thunderbolt firmware on my Lenovo Thinkpad T580. However the Firmware Update tool tels me "Firmware file (*.bin) not found in folder". I ran the update through Vantage and though the pcsupport download link.
I follow the steps in the readme, admin account and all that, but with the same result.
When I click next and ignore the file not found warning I get the following error:  Error: 0x207 SDK_FILE_NOT_FOUND File does not exist.

Please do these steps:

1.  open a command prompt as administrator

2.  cd \fw\win\thunderbolt

3.  detect.exe

4.  post screenshot of the output here.  It should look something like this.

This is what I expected to see, so I don't understand why you are having the failure to update the firmware.

Can you double-check that all 7 files are present in c:\fw\win\thunderbolt as shown below?

Is "Thunderbolt Software" installed in Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features?

What version is it?
