7 thoughts on “Updating Firmware from within Linux

  1. I have a spare Lenovo 330s thats been trying to update its BIOS since last winter. I read horror stories online about devices being bricked , I am very apprehensive about installing 'this' update. My computer functions , or at least seems to be fine running Windows. Every computer in my house runs linux this laptop is like an infection in the ecosystem .
    My main concern :
    It came with the Optane memory the first batch they released of the 16gb. I am also reading people have issues installing linux on Lenovo Laptops with Optane , have you had any experience with that ? I would love to get rid of Windows completely and install Debian , Lenovo ships the laptop with the drives in a RAID0 ( I didnt get the SSD version , the optane supplements the much larger HDD). If I was going to install Linux how would I want to configure the drives so that the Optane does its job ? Im sorry I know that was a few questions but I really don't know who else to ask. I have been stuck on Windows since Dec 28 of last year because I can't find an answer I am happy with. Aside from it all something about the Optane firmware originally had to be changed in order to install linux, which left a chance of bricking the Optane separately. Any thoughts would be appreciated , Thanks.
