You can also check the Lenovo Support website's driver matrix. Make sure the firmware bootdisk is in linux 'dd' format, as the self-extracting disks from the IBM website cannot be booted directly as such.

Lenovo/IBM provides firmware upgrades in a variety of packages: The Linux diskette is just the Diskette package that runs on Linux instead of Windows/DOS. This worked on the R31, X22, T21, T30 and T41p with various firmware updates.

Showing BIOS version 3.23 (1RETDRWW) and ECP version 3.04 (1RHT71WW). Change to the volume where flash2and other tools are installed, and execute "flash2/u".

Please consider updating the List of DMI IDs before (and after) updating your BIOS. This should bypass the battery check and perform the flashing.

If you have an optical drive there is no need to read this page any further: just download image, burn it and boot to flash bios. First you need to realize that there are different ways to boot DOS on PC (theoretically it is possible to boot Windows to ran flasher, but why? If this does not work for the Non-diskette .exe, try it on the Diskette Updating the ECP with a dead battery or no battery presents a similar problem. This will bypass the test for the battery and allow the ECP firmware to be updated.

...): from internal hard drive, CD drive, USB Flash drive or, as the last resort, floppy drive. It's reported, for example, that the Non-diskette for BIOS version 3.23 for the T41p was not extractable, but the Diskette worked perfectly, with There is a simple way to solve this, by stripping the header off from the Non-diskette version. For example, on the IBM Think Pad X31, the normal command-line command to update the ECP would be UPDTFLSH ("UPDTFLSH

But this utility checks for an installed and charged battery and will not let you update the ECP firmware if the battery is missing or not charged. The same disclaimer applies here as for the BIOS: do this only as a last resort.

This is a huge drawback for anyone wanting to use SSDs, because it is so much slower. So, even though Lenovo is now offering "Linux diskette" updaters, that will create a bootable floppy under Linux, using a floppy is still not recommended.

Especially usable when CDROM is not available, tested on X140e, but should work in most recent firmwares as these supports UEFI, much simpler than older methods outlined in this and other pages. Rund vfdwin.exe, go to the Driver tab and hit Install and Start. Here's how to update the bios in this case: download the spsdi833 bios update and create the update floppy. Remove the W98 bootdisk and put the disk with the BIOS update in the drive.You should have a USB mass storage device you can erase. Reboot, enter BIOS setup, enable UEFI only (or 1st priority) at startup options, save and reboot. Interrupt boot, press F12 and select USB mass storage device as boot source. The BIOS update utility should run and you should succeed in flashing BIOS. Then go to the Drive0 tab, click on Change and select A:. This should give you a virtual floppy drive the file will extract files to. If you have trouble creating this disk, download an archive with the files and put them on a floppy. If you would now run UPDTFLSH you would get the battery message, so don't do that.In case Lenovo does not provide your laptop with Bootable CD it is possible to create one from *discket packages. A third solution is to use QEMU with a DOS diskette image to run the disk extractor. If you open with a text editor, you would find some lines about UPDTROM.It is important to understand that Thinkpads from IBM have two separate firmwares: the BIOS, and the Embedded Controller Program (ECP). The special update instructions for X1, X1 Carbon, X1 Carbon 2nd, X1 Hybrid, X20, X21, X22, X23, X24, X30, X31, X32, X40, X41, X41 Tablet, X60, X60s, X60 Tablet, X61, X61s, X61 Tablet, X100e, X120e, X121e, X130e, X131e, X140e, X200, X200 Tablet, X200s, X201, X201i, X201s, X201 Tablet, X220, X230, X230i, X230s, X230 Tablet, X230i Tablet, X240, X240s, X300, X301 Thinkpads are quite long. The BIOS updater may refuse to update a BIOS without a battery, or if the battery charge is too low.

A given BIOS version will require a certain version of the ECP. You can find them at the page BIOS_Upgrade/X_Series. In that case, extract the disk image with cabextract as per instructions above and dd it to an usb stick.

Note: If your BIOS-Update tool says that no update is needed, then simply downgrade the Bios first: On Lenovo's drivers download page, the old Bios files are listed at the very bottom of the page. If you really want to do it with a floppy, some tips: BIOS, ECP, CD/DVD and Harddisk firmware disks can be booted over the network with PXELINX as part of the SYSLINUX package.
