Middleton BIOS with Lenovo BIOS 2.30

2020-10-04, 0:19 AM

I have a T61 that I want to update the BIOS to Middletons. The Middleton BIOS is version 2.29 and needs a Lenovo 2.29.  The only available BIOS from Lenovo is Version 2.30 and my present BIOS is 2.21. Does anyone know if  the Middleton BIOS works with version 2.30?

I can't answer your question re 2.30 but 2.29 is still on the server at the EOL site.  You can modify the .exe and readme file links by "subtracting" 1.  Both were available when I checked.


I always hesitate to suggest such shenanigans but there you go...
