Windows 8.1 - Lenovo system update

Hi there.

Installed Windows 8.1 PRO and I want to install Lenovo System update but I got stuck in installation after you want to click the NEXT button where LENOVO license Agreement appears it just does not work.

Any suggestions, workarounds?

I dont see Lenovo system update for windows 8.1 as yet on the support site. So I think it wont work for your current installation

Solution!  - Use Silent Install...

 

Window Key - X

Command Prompt (Admin)

Change to the directory where you downloaded your "SystemUpdate502-06-26-2013.exe"

CD C:\Users\{your profile name}\Downloads\

C:\Users\{your profile name}\Downloads\SystemUpdate502-06-26-2013.exe /a /s /v"/qn"

 

Wait a few minutes

 

go to the Star window

 

Type "System Update"

 

Your welcome!  But I can't take all the credit... I used Bing Translage and Google translate to read this site:

http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/agile/archive/2013/06/29/cannot-accept-license-terms-for-lenovo-s...

 

 

The IE page gave the details, but it took out the white space... the only line I needed at that point was correct and the only line on the Chrome tab showing the correct spacing... NICE!

Works like a charm (the silent install)

Well done, was thinking about silent installation, but did not know the parameters. So nice and easy with your help :-) Thanks a lot!

Hello "kenthink",

 

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Tablet with the optional finger print reader (the Lenovo Driver is being re-written for 8.1 as Microsoft changed some of the core driver architecture for the Windows Biometric Framework - Lenovo to have updated driver by October 18th - Microsoft Update provides a driver for Windows Login, but not 3rd party access to Biometric device... that is Lenovo's responsibility) , 16 GB of RAM, Samsung 840 Pro 512GB Solid State Drive, embedded Cellular Broadband Wireless WAN Adapter which is an Ericsson F5521gw (it took a bit to get working for Windows 8/8.1 as it is a Windows 7 driver)

 

for more details, I have a writeup on my blog

If your product key and serial no. was validated, I think it should upgrade....
