X1 Carbon 1st gen BIOS update without battery

2017-06-22, 9:34 AM

Hi,

I would like to update BIOS for X1 Carbon 1st gen.

When using the Utility tool for BIOS update downloaded from the support website,

it prompts an alarm saying that it cannot do a BIOS update when the battery is low.

The battery is not charging and has 0% charge.

Actually this was the main reason why I wanted to do the BIOS update.

Is there any way to ignore this (like not letting it check the battery or.. allowing a battery with 0%charge)?

Could it be possible to force updating by using forceit? g6uj24us.exe/forceit?

I read a post

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T61-and-prior-T-series/Updating-BIOS-on-Thinkpad-T60-no-battery/td-p/65772

but I could not find the winpflash tool.

 

Any help or ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!
