I would naturally like to have such an earlier release.

To all,

 

I'm expecting a test BIOS version to fix this issue, either Friday or Monday.  I will post again when I have it.  Really sorry for this issue and thank you for your patience.

Quick Update from a Windows 10 user here:

 

- System had no partitions, recovered using a Server Essentials image backup.

- Installed 1.12 bios, confirmed by using my eyeballs at the BIOS.

- Previous attempts at Win10 re-install from both downloaded and physically mailed Lenovo provided recovery media failed at about 60% ("recovery failed" - no more detail).

- After installation of 1.12, recovery from Lenovo supplied physical (USB) media succeeded.

 

I'm proceeding with my Win10 configuration and App installations.  I'll feel secure after about 2 weeks - but this is very promising indeed.

I've just updated, Bios version now shows version 1.12 while embedded controller still shows version 1.10.

 

I had to build a bootable stick manually because I'm running on Linux, maybe I missed a few files, not sure. I'll just try running it as is and will try to update again after the official iso release.

 

Edit: Turns out EC doesn't get updated if AC isn't plugged in, so maybe take the warnings serious and just plug it in before updating ;)

Here a quick guide on how to create a stick on linux (execute manually, this is not a fully automated script!):

 

DISK=/dev/sdX  # replace with your disk
WINFLASH=path/to/winflash  # replace with path to unpacked winflash directory

dd if=/dev/zero of=$DISK bs=1M count=128
parted $DISK  # replace with your stick
# mklabel msdos
# mkpart primary fat32 1 128M
mkfs.vfat -F32 $DISK
mount ${DISK}1 /mnt/
cp -R $WINFLASH /mnt/Flash
mkdir -p /mnt/EFI/Boot
cp /mnt/Flash/Bootx64.efi /mnt/EFI/Boot/BootX64.efi
umount /mnt
sync

After that your stick should be ready, reboot and select it as alternative boot medium (press F12 in uefi splash), follow on-screen guide, don't forget to plug your AC adaptor in ;)

Thanks! :-) Running 1.12 for couple of hours now. The issue hasn't returned so far :-)

Hi, Folks.

 

24 Hours in - Win10 fully reloaded, a ton of apps installed, zero BSOD's.  One Windows Explorer crash, but I suspect that's not related. 

 

Very bad issue - but this limited uptime seems to indicate the problem is resolved.
