Thinkpad X1 Carbon 5th - BIOS 1.21 download not working

My Lenovo Companion app as well as the Lenovo driver page shows an available BIOS Update (1.21.1.15) for my X1 Carbon 5th Thinkpad but if I try to install it, it fails to download the file.. What can I do?

Hi shizonic,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding BIOS update for your ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Gen 

The latest BIOS update for your system shows 1.20 in Lenovo support page check this link

 

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Hi Prabhansh

 

Thanks for the quick reply!

 

Yes I am talking about my ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Gen and I already have the BIOS version 1.20 installed.

 

But I am talking about a newer update which shows up in my Lenovo System Update Utility as well as on your driver download website (have a look to the screenshot). As you can see there is a version (1.21) available.

If I try to download it, it fails with the error message "1 paket was not downloaded". (Have a look at the next screen)

I am asking this because I need the Microcode fix for the Intel Skylake/Kabylake Hyperthreading issue which is described here: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/hyperthreading-kaby-lake-skylake-skylake-x,34876.html

 

Do you have any suggestions?

 

Regards,

shizonic

I believe you have tried both with Lenovo Companion & Lenovo System Update app. But the latest release is not available for download in Lenovo support page currently.

Yes, I tried it with both of them without success.

 

Okay, I understand. But can we expect a new update soon?

Yes, I guess we have to wait for the latest release from Lenovo which can resolve your issue.
