is it possible to install the T60p BIOS update without a battery pack?

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I was running some maintenance on my gfs Thinkpad T60p, model 2007EC1, and the BIOS update failed since she does not have a battery pack. The battery pack is unavailable as it was left behind when she came here for the summer. Is it possible to install the BIOS update with out? Is there a work around?

 

Thanks for your time.

 

Edit: Sorry i forgot os. It is currently running win xp sp3

No, to both questions.

There used to be some jumper hacks on the web for the older Thinkpad models.  Try a Google search and see if you find anything.
