BIOS upgrade for X230T for compatibility with Windows 10

2015-08-15, 12:43 PM

ThinkVantage is offering me a BIOS upgrade entitled "ThinkPad BIOS Update US [32,64]" to version

  1. ThinkPad support has repeatedly warned me not to upgrade BIOS unless absolutely necessary.
  2. My Thinkpad X230T is Swiss (German), not US.

Since I am planning to upgrade soon from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, it appears that I will have to upgrade my BIOS.


Why am I being offered the US BIOS?

Is it safe to use this update?

If not, where can I find the appropriate BIOS update for my region?

Are there any other issues, which I need to take into consideration before upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10?

X320T running Windows 8.1 Pro x64
