It's unknown if a boot image can be extracted from it. On the X22, it worked with ECP 1.30 but not with BIOS 1.32 Lenovo recommends reseting your BIOS settings to their factory defaults after a firmware update.Hi, My laptop (HP Probook 4440s) is in the list of laptops with BIOS updates related to security issues .But I am running Linux, for which no update seems to be available , while there is a BIOS update available for Windows ?Could anyone tell me how to get and apply this update via Linux.. It's really beyond me why HP doesn't provide a simple archive with the proper directory structure and a readme file so that everyone could update their BIOS regardless their operating system. This procedure worked for me but before using it you must consider the risks for yourself.
Updating the BIOS in Linux (with few exceptions) is not officially supported by Lenovo. By following any of the instructions here you are accepting the very real risk of turning your Think Pad into a big expensive paper weight, as a firmware update gone wrong can create unfix-able problems. A user on Notebook Review named 'Middleton' made these alternative BIOSes to enable SATA2 on certain Thinkpad models (X61/T61/R61/X300). Write the extracted image to a USB Flash drive using dd.These Think Pads are limited to SATA1 in their BIOS even though the hardware is SATA2. "geteltorito" is available in Ubuntu (at least in Trusty, 14.04) from package "genisoimage".
