Trouble getting X61 BIOS update

2008-04-24, 11:34 AM
Hello -
 
I'm trying to upgrade the BIOS on an X61 but can't seem to get the update.
All the methods I've found lead to the same place:
 
 
 
But what I see there is merely:
 
  "Our Apologies
 
   There is a problem retrieving the document MIGR-67982."
 
Is it only me?  Or is that file missing? 
 
I have tried from two different systems, but they are both behind the same
firewall/proxy etc. so if the problem could be at my end.  However, I was
able to fetch the BIOS Settings utility which makes me doubt the trouble
is near my system.
 
Anybody else able to get the upated BIOS?

Upgrade complete.
 
I found a cached version of the broken page and from that a link
to the real file.  Here is the link in case somebody else needs it:

it's not a mistake.   the current BIOS pages were pulled from the website because of an error happening with >1% of machines setting an extra bit in the power-on password ultimately locking users out of their machines.
