I just bought and turned on my brand new p2 and everything went well until I concluded the “license agreement” Based on the information you sent, we recommend that you uninstall what you originally installed, as it is not our BIOS update firmware. If you don`t feel safe, run an antivirus program on your computer to make sure it`s free of any threats. Below is the right bios update link;support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/500s-13isk/80Q2/005DHH/downloads/DS112433Thank you. Lenovo Technical Support In addition, the “License Agreement” states that Lenovo collects “Basic Information,” “Usage Information,” and “Application Information.” What exactly does it entail? Should it be intermediated as “Lenovo 24/7 survival”? Hello JanGab, the first day after buying this new computer, I looked for updates and there were a total of 4 optional and one review that was critical for the bios. Then I kept thinking it was essential. As you say, the Vantage software pre-installed on the computer is the one that prompted me to do it. To my knowledge, this is not possible without accepting the “license agreement”, although I have had some questions. Updating the BIOS is really important, because if the user does not update the BIOS and firmware, the system is delayed and many software or applications are not connected. I have the same problem when synchronizing Outlook connectivity and without updating the BIOS, it showed connection error 10060 on the interface. So I had to update the bio. When I checked Lenovo Vantage for system updates, it turned out that a bios update was available. Install it` I found the update on Lenovo`s website, but the SHA1 does not match (see appendix).
How can I confirm that this update is legitimate? Typical Lenovo: push it to users; They will understand. Anyway, I tracked the BIOS update to the end of the installer from the trusted source.
