T470p firmware upgrade from Linux Ubuntu 18.04

Q: T470p firmware upgrade from Linux Ubuntu 18.04

Hi, I'm trying (unsuccesfully) to apply the latest firmware upgrade (1.18) to my T470p laptop, using the only OS I have: Ubuntu 18.04. I tried downloading the CD ISO (r0fuj18wd.iso), flashing it to a USB pen, but the laptop refuses to reboot from there.Further notes:-) from BIOS: I restored defaults, and I also secure boot; my current firmware is 1.17-) I tried both flashing the .iso directly to the USB flash (that shows up as /dev/sda), using dd or other USB flashing tools (even unetbootin from a Windows laptop), and also to create a FAT32 or FAT16 partition, then flash into /dev/sda1, setting also the bootable flag on the partition with fdiskThe result has consistently been the same: when I reboot, after selecting boot menu and temporary boot device, I choose the USB drive, but it doesn't boot anything from there. On a related note, when I insert the USB disk, I see an empty disk labelled "R0FET44U".Is there anyone who succesfully managed to install such a firmware upgrade from Linux and might have a useful hint ? Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello,

I'm running CentOS 7 on E7470, and a few of the devices aren't working, like smart card reader, fingerprint reader, etc. According to some sources, deploying the latest ControlVault firmware/drivers package may fix some of those.
The native installer is built for Windows, and I was wondering if it'd be possible to do the upgrade by either booting a Windows portable/live version and running the upgrade, or, copying the installer to a USB and doing an upgrade in the way it's done with BIOS upgrades on Linux?
Perhaps LVFS? (Although compiling that on CentOS 7 is not really straight forward)
Regards,Milos.

A:E7470 firmware upgrade on Linux

Here's another (risky?) idea: There's a Windows 10 VM running on top of libvirt/KVM, and I can do USB passthru of Broadcom 5880. Driver isn't applied by default, so I'm tempted to try how wrong might things go if I were to install ControlVault2 firmware and drivers for these devices as they're passed thru to the VM.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

There is a new firmware release (FWNV15) for the NVMe SSD of the X1 Carbon 5th. I'm wondering if there is a way to perform the upgrade on a machine with no Windows installed on the internal SSD?
 
I've installed Ubuntu on the NVMe SSD and have a external USB Drive with Windows 10.
 
I tried to run the Firmware Update Utility on the "external" Windows 10 but no luck so far. Windows reboots and after it's up again the utility just shows some generic error message.
 
Also, there doesn't seem to be a booteable ISO.
 
Any recommendations on how to upgrade the firmware with my setup?

A:Upgrade NVMe SSD firmware to FWNV15 (X1 Carbon 5th Gen) on Linux

The upgrade utility sometimes fails before it reboots windows with a message like "can't initializie linux system". So I investigated further and found that the updater in fact is an ELF binary  $ file fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff
fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib/ld-linux.so.2, for GNU/Linux 3.8.13, not stripped Which also seems to be pretty easy to use: $ ./fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff
PROGRESS --- start firmware update.
Usage ./fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff <Model> <Serial> <Firmware> [Option]
Model : Drive Model Name.(Mandatory)
Serial : Drive Serial Number.(Mandatory)
Firmware : Firmware Image file path.(Mandatory)
Option : Additional Option string starts with `-'.(Optional)
PROGRESS --- completed with status(8). And the necessary info which firmware to use is in a file called fwwinsd.pro: $ cat fwwinsd.pro
"THNSF5512GPUK TO","5KLA5102","5KLA5104","TINYCORE","fwupdater_i686_Win10_LPMoff","5KLA5104_NVME.sig","L","TOSHIBA"

Hello, maybe someone can help me out with the problem I have upgrading the firmware of my T470s. The installed version is 1.11 (from June 2017, I think.). It runs archlinux and is no dual boot system i.e. there is no windows version on it anymore. I have learned that one of the usual ways to update is using the tool fwupdmgr. When I run the tool with "fwupdmgr update", the output is "No releases found for device: Not compatible with firmware version 0.1.11, requires >= 0.1.14" Maybe it is possible to install the current system firmware (which is 1.33) directly with "fwupdmgr install <xyz>.cab", but I don't dare to do so because I don't want to brick the hardware. So my question is: Can this be done savely and if not, is there any other way to upgrade the firmware without using windows? Thanks and kind regards

A warning for X1C6 users on Linux. With the latest Intel Management Engine Firmware update, versioned 11.8.65.3590, S3 sleep is broken. The system will drain a fully charged battery in a matter of hours under the new firmware, and it is impossible to downgrade the firmware. This is with the "Linux" sleep state option enabled in BIOS, and everything was working correctly before the upgrade. Lenovo, please address this issue and ensure proper QA for your Linux user base going forward - this is unacceptable.

Hi, I'm going to by a new Thinkpad soon and I'm still unsure whether I should get the T470 or the T470p. I'd really like to have the extra CPU performance of the T470p. However, as a Linux user without any special GPU-consuming applications I would like to use the Intel IGP graphics only (due to the better Linux support and the reduced power consumption). The CPU (i7-7700HQ) does have an Intel IGP graphics according to Intel but I'm not sure whether/how I can use that instead of the NVidia graphics card. Is it possible to do disable the NVidia GPU in the BIOS/UEFI or via a software setting? If it is a software setting: How is it configured on Linux (Ubuntu 16.04)?ThanksJakob

I'm running a T440s with two type A02 Ultra Docks. My OS is Linux Mint (currently 18.3, shortly to be 19.3). I have one dock (manufactured 14/06) with out of date firmware that I'd like to update to see if it resolves a problem (flickering display when laptop reconnects -- I've been using a KVM switch with two laptops). The newer dock is a replacement which hasn't exhibited the problem. It may be a hardware fault but would like to try a firmware upgrade. How can I do this? (ie., without re-installing Windows just to run this) My laptop doesn't undock properly -- I get a blank screen on both laptop and monitor. I know of but haven't tried the dockd solution available from github; I'll wait until I've tried a newer Linux kernel first. It would be helpful to know from now on what minimum kernel release is required for docking station functionality to work.

A:install firmware in Linux

@efueyo Basically, you can't -- which is why many of us retain dual-boot systems -- because most, if not all, of the system utilities provided by manufacturers run ONLY in Windows. HP distributes their utilities as compressed archives -- and the only tool I know of personally that can extract the components is 7-ZIP -- another Windows utility. If you CAN extract the components, you can see what they are, but most likely, the only executable parts are going to be MS Windows only.

Win 7/Win XP/Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot

I have a PC that is currently a dual boot between Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu Linux 8.04 (Hardy Heron). The two operating systems are on separate physical drives. Ubunutu is on the PC?s original 250 gig drive (the primary) and Win 7 is on a 1 TB Seagate internal drive that I added later (the slave).

I already discussed dual booting with Ubuntu and Win 7 on a Linux forum. I installed each OS completely independently of the other. I installed Ubuntu first without the other drive installed. I later disconnected the 250 GB primary drive and installed Windows 7 to the 1 TB drive as if Ubuntu were not even present on the PC. Later I reconnected and edited a file known as menu.lst in Ubuntu?s feature known as ?Grub?. Grub looks at the file and gives me the choice of Windows 7 or Ubuntu when I boot up.

Now it?s a long story, but I need to add Windows XP to my choices. I?m told on the Ubuntu forum that I can temporarily disconnect the Ubuntu drive and set up XP on the 1 TB drive as a dual boot with Bootloader handling the choice between Win 7 and XP. The idea is to get it running right and later reconnect the Ubuntu drive. Grub will give me the choice between Ubuntu and Windows; then if I choose Windows, Bootloader will give me the choice between Win 7 and XP. I could live with that.

So the Ubuntu drive is disconnected. We don?t have to worry about that in this thread. If I have any trouble with Grub, I?ll... Read more

Tom, I think the answer to your question is on the first sentence of the Tutorial how to load the SATA drivers: "When you install Win XP, setup can not find your Hard Drive."

So, if setup can find your HD, you should be good to go.

One remark: installing XP after Windows 7 is a bit more complicated, you will have to repair Windows 7 boot file to add XP. You have mentioned the tutorial, so you shoudl be good to go. I just highlight it since it can be a stumbling block.

Regarding the floppy disk thing, from what I know it is XP's idiosyncrasy, it doesn't allow drivers to be loaded with USB drives. It is from a time there were no USB drives...

A:Motherboard with Ubuntu/Linux support

Is there a specific component on that motherboard that you're having problems with? I can't imagine that the motherboard is not "compatible" with linux - in fact, I've found threads with people using Ubuntu with that mobo. I also find it odd that you'd have a Windows Vista issue with that mobo since most of the users I see online who use it are running Vista or 7 64-bit. Perhaps you have a faulty motherboard and it's not a problem with the model itself.
