I want to update my BIOS. My OS is Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
I downloaded the bootable CD ISO file from:
Then checked the checksum, it is fine.
I used 2 methods with no success:
USB Image Writer,
the method explained here (which worked for my ThinkPad T430, but not for X1 Carbon 4 Ge:neration) https://cloudnull.io/2017/07/x1-bios-update-under-linux/
When I boot from the USB drive, a black screen appears and then I am kicked back to the boot device selection menu.
Please, check if the bootable ISO file is actually bootable.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The BIOS exe file contains tools and instructions for making a bootable flash drive. If you have access to a Windows machine or VM you might try that approach instead of manipulating the ISO:
