This utility will examine your system configuration and detect all Solid State Drives (SSD) installed in your ThinkPad.

The utility will then check the firmware revision of the SSD 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.

For that purpose, it is necessary to have the CD/DVD/BD writing software (with CD/DVD/BD creation function from the ISO image file) prepared separately.

Also, any one of the following types of CD-RW, CD-RW & DVD Combo, DVD, DVD Multi, BD or other drives should be prepared. (Hereafter these drives are
called as "optical drive".)
- ThinkPad internal optical drive

A written 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)
