i have a old 570 and i need to update the bios as i need to upgrade the os, i have been looking the lenovo sites and i have foud some conflicting information,
to upgrade the bios i need a floppy drive which on the 570 is only available on the ultrabase which connects to the laptop, whilst reading through the instructions i came across this
"If your computer is attached to any kind of docking station or port replicator, turn off the computer and detach it before proceeding."
does this include the ultrabase? am i able to update the bios with the floppy drive on the ultrabase? if not how do i do it?
thank you for any help

Welcome to the forum!
Your 570 has a special connector for the external floppy, which is what IBM had assumed (at the time) that you'd be using. These can be found on eBay for a couple of bucks, or in your case, a few quid.
Hope this helps.
