The last BIOS update I did was on an ASUS motherboard. ASUS supply a
DOS utility to flash the BIOS, so I created a bootable CD with
FreeDOS, the utility and the new BIOS on it, as I don't have a floppy
drive. The FeeDOS website had a guide to creating the CD. If Lenovo
also have a DOS utility, that may be a way forward.
