I have realised that some graphics glitches i have been experiencing
on my thinkpad x121e might be the product of an out-of-date BIOS. As
such i am looking to update my BIOS.

>From what i can see online, it looks like doing this on ubuntu can be
a risky enterprise - potentially leaving your machine unbootable. This
is compared with updating in widows where you close all programmes and
run a .exe file which you download from the manufacturer's website.

Given this my question is whether it makes any difference to my system
whether i update via my windows or linux partition.
