X61 Tablet Vista 64 can't update bios

2008-06-21, 20:15 PM
Hi everyone:
I want to update my x61 tablet's bios. Because my system is vista 64, the offical site told me to burn a BIOS Update Bootable CD and use ThinkPad Ultrabay Optical Disc Drive in the ThinkPad Ultrabay updating bios.
As my observation, x61 tablet don't have ThinkPad Ultrabay.
Please help me to solve this trouble, thank you!

There is a way for sure, but surely, it's more complicated indeed. This link would be able to answer you.

Thank you very much!
I successed with Approach 3.
By the way, because I don't have VMWare, I used a virtual floppy software and a win98 startup disk image instead of first step.
