X1 Yoga Gen 1 Bios Machine Type Incorrect

2021-04-22, 10:48 AM

In the Bios of my Yoga Gen 1, it has a Machine type of : 20AWS5375F

20AW refers to a 440P

The serial number also cannot be checked in the warranty

 

Yoga's of this type are typically 20FQ or 20FR

 

Any idea what might be going on here

 

Steve

Hello sbabcock,

 


Greetings

 

That's somehow strange.
I suggest that you go to the support site, enter your serial number there and check the BIOS version if it matches the one you have on your X1 yoga.
Update us how it goes

 

 

Regards,

Did you buy the laptop new?  Was the motherboard replaced?

Laptop is used ....

 

Is a T440P motherboard the same as a Yoga ?

 

If so, is there a way to change the machine type so that System Update or Lenovo Vantage work ?

 

I've been downloading updates including BIOS manually and installing them
