Unable to update Thunderbolt firmware on 5th gen Thinkpad X1

2018-09-01, 19:41 PM
Hi,
 Lenovo recently released a firmware update in the Lenovo Vantage app for the thunderbolt port on my 5th Gen X1 but the update seems to fail. Also tried the update by downloading it direct from Lenovo support website but getting the same error.  Any suggestions? Cheers

To know the process of the firmware update in the Lenovo Vantage app for the Thunderbolt port on my 5th Gen X1 for that you need to know some of the following processes from the help of the Google Drive tech help for the entire process which you want.

Dear customers,

Which version of Thunderbolt Software is installed on your system?

I'd like you to update the Thunderbolt3 Software to the latest version (v17.3.74.400) then will update the Thunderbolt FW next.

hi,

 

updating the thunderbolt driver helped. After installing your version I could install the thunderbolt firmware.

BUT why was the more recent version of the driver not shown in Vantage?

 

thank you so far

Hi

Do you have an idea to update the Firmware silent?

There's a tool in the package, named "FwUpdateCmd.EXE" and my problem is to give input that is needed.

To update it silently you need to pass these var through.

FwUpdateCmd.exe FWUpdate <controller ID / device UUID> <imagePath>

You need controller ID, device UUID and Image path.

One must get these data from

controller ID - controller ID as returned from EnumControllers or GetTopology commands
device UUID   - device UUID as returned from EnumUpdatableDevices or GetTopology commands

But I have no idea which one is which after executing the command.

Please help.

I have a P52 and the same problem.  My software version is 17.4.78.500; App Version 17.4.78.15; Service Version 17.4.78.14 and Controller Driver is 17.4.78.21.  It's listed as the newest on my Drive update page.  NVM Firmware is 23.00.  Please help as I got the the window saying that warning message to not use suspend or power down and when I click OK it bombs out.  Will not update.

 

Thanks
