Phoenix Bios Editor 2.2 12
In my personal experience, when updating the BIOS with either the phoenix tool or SpareBIOS, there is little chance of success. I'm not sure why there is a difficulty since the utility for updating the BIOS is fairly simple. All BIOS updates are done using files stored on a floppy disk. There is a floppy disk utility which allows you to use the BIOS update files when the computer is not running. A post on the Lenovo Forum which suggests performing a BIOS update with the SpareBIOS utility is in this forum topic. This isn't a very common procedure but it is not too hard and has worked for the author.
