There are many ways propageted to update the BIOS of your Thinkpad, if you don’t have access to a native windows [,, (X_Series)]. I tried some (via Grub or put the ISO image with dd on a flash drive — watch out to not destroy your drive!), but finally here is what works for me.


With the Method described at I was able to boot via the grub4dos package an CD image from the Lenovo Download site.

Note: in order to write grub4dos in the MBR of your flashdrive the right command is

sudo ./ /dev/sdb

not sdb1, for instance.
Hope this helps!
