Lenovo Thinkpad Edge e570 crash during BIOS update



I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E570 [205H50043US] with BIOS R0DET97W 1.97, 256 SSD, 1 TB HDD, 16 Gb RAM, Intel Core i7-7500U. Windows 10 PRO 1903 64bit. The computer is working flawlessly and without problems but is out of warranty so I don’t think that Lenovo support will help me.


Today I was checking for updates and there were 3 updates; Intel Management Engine Firmware – 7 [32.64] – V. and Realtek Ethernet Drive V.10.031.0828.2018 installed without problems but when I tried to apply BIOS update – 7 v1.99, the system crashed with the Windows blue screen of death message "Your PC ran into a problem…"


I was doing the updates using the Lenovo Vantage Metro App. Then I proceeded to download the file from Lenovo’s support web site and then tried to install it manually. The installer ran, the command prompt windows was displayed and the process started but then the system crash again with another Windows BSOD.


After rebooting the computer both times, it started normally and is working without problems but I stop trying to update the BIOS again scared to "brick" the laptop. I have updated the BIOS many times in the past and this is the first time that I’m getting this problem.


Any ideas why the system is now crashing and how to apply the BIOS update?





Goodnight the GUI (CMM) shows san switch in yellow, however it works well, has this happened to you?
