Bio Update via USB for X1Carbon Haswell

November 30Hits:3
Advertisement
Hi All,
Having some issues trying to update the bios.
Currently running Ubuntu so cannot use the windows utility to update, my only option now is to create a bootable USB and use tools like UNetbootin to create the USB via the iso image.
I have found that the iso image from the Lenovo website is empty? I had tried to mount this iso file on my system and its empty... no hidden files etc... I also tried to download it on spare windows machine with a cdrom and used the windows default burning tool to burn the iso which gave an error.
Has anyone had any success updating their bios using the ISO file supplied by Lenovo from: http://support.lenovo.com/en_AU/downloads/detail.page?&DocID=DS039783
Any assistance is appreciated,
Thanks,

I am pretty sure you have to do it the way Canon tells you to in its documentation on the support page for the 280, i.e. copying the firmware file to a card in a card reader.  There is no mention of ImageBrowser in the documentation.  Updating via ImageBrowser is probably just for the browser software on your computer.  Most things can be done via USB but updating firmware is usually a pretty rare thing except for this particular model camera which has seen two updates so far and I wish would see another (since I too am verging on returning it to the store before my 30 days are up, the day after I get home from vacation). The issues improved with the updates but are still there (see very long thread about battery issues in this forum).
