Re: Windows 10 Update downloaded X1E firmware 1.0.0.23 when 1.24 is already installed

"Release Preview". I figured the insider program could be the reason 🙁

I was finally able to block the Lenovo 1.0.0.23 firmware update using the Microsoft Show or Hide Updates tool and break this vicious reboot cycle.

Yes, I found this article. But for now I'll just use the little Microsoft unitlity above to simply hide it while somebody at MS/Lenovo fixes it.

Re: Windows 10 Update downloaded X1E firmware 1.0.0.23 when 1.24 is already installed

There is definitely a problem where X1E and P1 gets downgraded to 1.23 by Windows Update and we are investigating it.  Sorry for this trouble.  Here is some more information:

 

1.  BIOS has always been in Windows Update, since at least 2017.

 

2.  Windows Update will only push BIOS updates if you are in insider program.

 

3.  You can prevent BIOS update initiated via Windows Update by changing the BIOS setting in Security -> UEFI BIOS Update Option ->  Windows UEFI Firmware Update.

Thanks for the new information. Given that the track record on recent BIOS updates has been a bit shaky, wouldn't it be advisable to set the UEFI Update in the SECURITY BIOS tab to DISABLED as the default?
