X120e update BIOS failed "Driver Loading Failed. The Utility cannot proceed"

2011-05-06, 6:48 AM

I was tried to update Bios to 1.12 but not successed..

It always came out this message " Driver Loading Failed. The Utility cannot proceed."..

I tried to update under safe mode, still not work..

I tried to use Winflash, it came out "Cannot open new BIOS file"..

There's only one method that I didn't try is that burn a ISO CD and connect to External CDROM.. but I don't have External CDROM..

The reason that I update Bios is that I want to install Toolbox; otherwise, I won't take this risk..

For futhermore information click following link..

Sounds like something wonky with your Windows install. I'd avoid doing a BIOS update through such an install.

Are you certain your bios file is not corrupted? donwload another file and try again. However there are some unexplained problem with the 1.12 bios. Some of us have bricked our X120E. You might like to read that thread before continuing..
