I've recently purchased an Ideapad 530S-14ARR. I would like to update the Bios to this device but the bios update package is only available for Windows. What options do I have to update it?

Currently using Ubuntu 18.04.

  • It is not officially supported via fwupd. And on Arch Wiki only one IdeaPad article mentions BIOS updates, and even then it is only to admit that it can be done on Windows only. Someone else might still find resources I didn't look for. Also I have done some kind of USB thumbdrive-based BIOS updates on a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon 6th gen.

  • @Karel Ahoj, the issue is not the same. The one you referenced was for a specfic model (some toshiba model). They are not the same as they may both have different methods.
