Ubuntu updating bios
I then tried another USB which showed only one partition in GParted. Also i am not trying to write the ISO at this point. I'll also call Lenovo in the morning to see if they can tell me why the Windows utility isn't working. When I updated my BIOS (from a Free DOS-formatted USB stick), it continued to report the older version until I physically unpowered it and repowered it after a delay. jingoism, racism, fear, religious fundamentalism: these are the ways of appealing to people if you’re trying to organize a mass base of support for policies that are really intended to crush them." -- Noam Chomsky, in "Understanding Power" -- [hidden email] https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-ukhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeam/ I have had a chat with my friend regarding updating the bios on a dual boot. He has never had to go through grub4dos to update his, so unfortunately he cant help there.

I am just trying to create the grub4dos boot sector in the MBR of the flash drive. j On 17 July 2012 , Anton Kanishchev -- James Morrissey Research Officer Refugee Studies Centre | Department of International Development | University of Oxford 3 Mansfield Road | Oxford, United Kingdom | OX1 3TB -- [hidden email] https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-ukhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeam/ Hi Anton, Yeah, i tried two USB sticks.
Hi, I have realised that some graphics glitches i have been experiencing on my thinkpad x121e might be the product of an out-of-date BIOS. From what i can see online, it looks like doing this on ubuntu can be a risky enterprise - potentially leaving your machine unbootable.
This is compared with updating in widows where you close all programmes and run a file which you download from the manufacturer's website.
