x23 Bios and Embedded Controller Program Updating

2008-08-04, 22:24 PM

I am trying to update my bios on my x23.  I have relatively old versions of both the bios and the ECP, and both say that they won't work without more current version of the other.  Which one am I supposed to update first?

thanks,

David

I had an X22 and that always used to confuse me too. The Lenovo X2x support page says it is important to have compatible BIOS and Embedded Controller versions, and to update them "at the same time".

 

I later bought an X41, and there they say update the BIOS first.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

It is confusing; on the BIOS page it says update the BIOS first and on the ECC page it says update the ECC first :smileymad:

What I suggest is to look at the table at the very bottom of the pages to see which is compatible with what and carefully work out which, if necessary older, version of what can be installed first untill you reach the current versions of both. It may be possible to leap-frog some of the updates.

 

Hope I explained that well enough.

Andy

Thanks AndyP,

I understand what you are saying, but I think logistically it won't work (I have versions 1.25 and 1.23 of Bios and ECC and neither appear to be listed as compatabile with any higher versions, at least they do not mention compatibilities on the pages I was able to find).  I'm just reluctant to jump into trying anything (can't afford to lose this laptop).

Is there a listing of the compatibilities for the previous bios and ECC versions somewhere?

thanks again!

david
