Important information

Lenovo strongly suggests rebooting the system before applying the BIOS update.

Please first check BIOS version. If BIOS version of the machine is higher than 29CN26WW (V2.03) (included), 29CN38WW (V2.15) or other latest ones can be directly updated to. If BIOS version of the machine is older than 29CN26WW (V2.03), please turn to local Lenovo service provider for BIOS update.
