Hey Yets, I actually solved my issue through some digging and found that if you use Gigabyte's Thunderbolt firmware updater but chose the lenovo .bin file(mention in thread above) that is downloaded through Lenovo's site it will actually work. I can't remember where it unpackges to though(not currently around a Lenovo). I know its in a sub directory on C:\.

 

It seems like Lenovo's thunderbolt updater package does a few other checks that cause it to fail. Even though on Gigabyte's still had the "safe_mode" error it let it pass and updated the firmware anyways.

Hope this helps.
