Notes
  • If the BIOS has been updated to version 1.50 or higher, it is no longer able to roll back to the version before 1.50 because the new 10-digit part number and serial number format was once installed. The old BIOS with the 7-digit part number and serial number format can not handle the 10-digit format.
Updating the UEFI BIOS

Notes:

  • Due to Security improvement, once updated to the version GDET37WW(1.07) or above,
    it is prevented to downgrade to GDET36WW(1.06) or older version.
  • If the BIOS has been updated to version 1.50 or higher, it is no longer able to roll back to the version before 1.50 because the new 10-digit part number
    and serial number format was once installed. The old BIOS with the 7-digit part number and serial number format can not handle the 10-digit format.
  • If your computer runs satisfactorily now, it may not be necessary to update the UEFI BIOS. To determine if you should update the UEFI BIOS, refer to the Version information section.
  • You need an AC adapter and a charged battery pack.
  • Remove the Power-on password prior to updating the UEFI BIOS in the Remote Deployment Manager environments.

Attention:
Do not turn off or suspend the computer until the update has been completed. IF YOU DO THAT WHILE THE UPDATE IS STILL IN PROGRESS, THE SYSTEM BOARD MAY HAVE TO BE REPLACED.
