Cannot update X260 BIOS

I recently tried updating to the latest 1.31 update. The system is on 1.25. I used the USB updater (not the updater CD ISO). Upon starting, it returned an error "Invalid capsule file when SecureFlash is on in ROM".

I have rollback prevention and secureboot disabled. Also tried making a 1.30 update USB and the same error occured.

Has anyone ran into this issue?

Re: Cannot update X260 BIOS

Turns out the EFI updater that comes with the windows update package is outdated.

I used the CD updater, flashed it to a USB and it updated just fine.

Re: Cannot update X260 BIOS

 I spent all night trying to update my bios. Vantage failed to update over and over. I tried the thumb drive method (why Lenovo couldn't make easier I don't know) and I was getting the error "Invalid capsule file when SecureFlash is on in ROM".

 

I updated all of my windows updates and shut down all of my firewalls, antiviruses, flushed the Software Destribution Folder, and Reset the Catroot2 Folder.

 

I don't what happend but while I was sitting there an auto update appeared on my screen and asked if I wanted to update my bios. I'm not sure where it came from but it worked. This was after months and months of trying to update it myself. 

 

My cpu fan was also randomly turning on/off and resetting all of the above seemed to help. I'm not totally convinced with my fan fix yet....fingers crossed.
