This utility will examine your system configuration and detect all 2.5 inch SATA Hard Drives (HDD) installed in your ThinkPad. SATA (Serial AT Attachment) is a new interface for storage devices.

The utility will then check the firmware revision of the hard drive and judge whether your system requires a firmware update or not. If required, it will prompt you to run the appropriate firmware update program for your drive.

This package is compiled into an ISO format, which is compatible with CD writing software such which supports and ISO format image file, and writable to a CD-R or a CD-RW disc.

A written CD-R or CD-RW disc will be bootable. It will boot from your ThinkPad Optical Disc Drive(*) and run the update utility program.

  • Your ThinkPad may need to change the boot device setting to boot from an Optical Disc Drive. (See the "Prepare boot device" section in this document)


  • This firmware update utility may not update a drive without a Lenvo part number(P/N), even its model is identical to a drive in the supported drive list. The drives with Lenovo part numbers include firmwares designed for using with the ThinkPad system.
