Recently I purchased a second-handed ThinkPad-x230 with part number of 2324LZ4.
The BIOS is oddly old (G1ET32WW), so I went to the support page and downloaded the latest BIOS update utility from here
with the version G2ETA8WW.
When I run the utility, I got an error message "BIOS directory cannot be found".
I also tried the USB update method, also similar message and to no avail.
My question is,
1. It seems that the newest BIOS does not compactible to my x230 since the version starts with G2 while mine starts with G1. Is my assumption correct?
2. If so, where could I found the right image?
3. I found someone on the internet successfully flashed CoreBoot to replace the original BIOS. Is it safe?
Thank you for your attention.
