Vantage , update retriever and Critical Thunderbolt Firmware Updates

Our organisation is ready to update Critical Intel Thunderbolt Software and Firmware Updates for Thinkpads with Vantage and Update retriever from local repository. 

 

We downloaded everything releaded TB3 for X and T series. We put them Active from Test-status. 

 

Thinkpads have Vantage versio 4 or 20, mostly 20 (Enterprise versio). Vantage do not show this TB3 fw update for any model we have. UEFI fw is showing like drivers we have Active-status. Why TB3 fw is not showing? How to fix this?

Re: Vantage , update retriever and Critical Thunderbolt Firmware Updates

Seems its not working for the X1 Extreme 2.Gen.

 

I cannot connect a Thunderbold 3 to DP adapter. It keeps telling me that the adapter is not supported.

What specific ThinkPad models are you asking about?  And what version of Windows 10 is on these models?

There is currently an issue with T470, T470s, T480, and T480s - the Thunderbolt firmware won't apply to Win10 1903 systems.  It will apply to Win10 1809 (and earlier).

 

X280 doesn't have this problem.  You should be seeing the Thunderbolt firmware on any Win10 version.  X270 doesn't have Thunderbolt, so there isn't any update for it.

 

Can you please tell me the details about how you are setting up the repository using Update Retriever?  Are you modifying any of the packages after you download them?

I'm working on T470/T480 situation, but I don't have a fix date yet.

What Thunderbolt driver version is installed on these systems?

Re: Vantage , update retriever and Critical Thunderbolt Firmware Updates

By next week i will have sccm report of our entire computer base. Uefi FW, tb3 FW, TB driver and few other info. This raport is our tool to follow users click FW updates on and find problem users/computers.

 

Will notify here driver versions but our t480s should be with fixed and other models still with the older driver.

 

We update now everything Btw. Uefi, ime, tb3, camera, audio, wlan, bt, etc. Before end of december Intel chipset and graphics too.

Re: Vantage , update retriever and Critical Thunderbolt Firmware Updates

Here are results, but this is not total amount yet (still counting in). Waiting to see if Vantage FW or Driver update work at all. Some computers have fixed by hand / manual FW update and few might have worked with Vantage so far. When is T470/480 FW released for Vantage without problems?

Re: Vantage , update retriever and Critical Thunderbolt Firmware Updates

Hi. I have problem. My carbon x1 5th can't be charged with adapter . But before I not see thunderbolt. Now I see it (after reset button). But still can not charge. Laptop work only from battery. I want to update Thunderbolt Firmware but  can't  because it asks to  connect AC adapter. How to make update without adapter. I have 50% battery. How to change (& what in what file to change)  that it not ask me about AC adapter?

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
