P51 (20HH, 20HJ) Latest Thunderbolt 3 Software & Firmware to Support Pre-Boot ACLs

Q: P51 (20HH, 20HJ) Latest Thunderbolt 3 Software & Firmware to Support Pre-Boot ACLs

P51 BIOS Update v1.21 & Later advised support for Pre-Boot ACL option on Thunderbolt devices providing the P51 ThinkPad is running Thunderbolt software version 17.3.73.350 or higher and Thunderbolt firmware NVM 26 or higher (see release notes extract below): *** Extract from n1uuj13.txt release notes ***[New functions or enhancements]- Supported Pre-Boot ACL option for Thunderbolt device on pre-boot environmentin ThinkPad Setup - Config - Thunderbolt 3.(Note)To use this feature, System need to updateThunderbolt software to version 17.3.73.350 or higher andThunderbolt firmware to NVM 26 or higher.***Current Thunderbolt Software / Firmware available for P51 (20HH, 20HJ) from Lenovo support website is 17.1.64.250 / 15. When will latest P51 Thunderbolt software / firmware compatible with above BIOSPre-Boot ACL enhancement become available? I note you have released Thunderbolt software version 17.3.74.400 for P51 (20MM, 20MN) which does satisfy the above BIOS Pre-Boot ACL enhancement requirement, and should be compatible with P51 (20HH, 20HJ) as both use the same Thunderbolt 3 Controller, viz Intel JHL6340 / Device ID 15D9, but this section of support website doesn't include the latest Thunderbolt 3 firmware. When will the latest firmware release be added? Keith

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.

Hello, we are trying to update Thunderbolt firmware on one of my colleague's Lenovo P50 since it does not recognise Akitio external PCIe box (his NVM version is 16). We updated all the drivers including BIOS. We updated the Thunderbolt Software. But we cannot update the Thunderbolt firmware. We downloaded this: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/be/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-... namely: n1etf08w.exe We tried to install it as administrator, but it gives an error, something along the lines of: "PM driver is old, please update the PM driver first.". We updated the Power Management driver: https://support.lenovo.com/be/en/downloads/ds032258 And we can see in device manager that it is currently the latest version. But Thunderbolt firmware still does not install giving the same error saying that PM driver is old. Is PM driver the Power Management driver or something else? What might be the problem?

Hello,

Dell just release a new Thunderbolt firmware 4.26.03.001 ,A07
I installed it, and it seems to have destroyed my external HDMI port.
I tested it with different monitors and cables.
On some monitors the colors are inverted (white goes black). Some monitors don't display anything.

I hope the upgrade caused no hardware defect to the HDMI port.
Unfortunately I cannot find the old Thunderbolt firmware to got back.

Regards
Oliver

A:XPS 9550: Latest Thunderbolt firmware upgrade destroys HDMI port

Same. Installed the new firmware successfully, restarted and now my HDMI port is more or less dead. The Laptop still detects the external monitor but it won't output anything.
Tried reinstalling the Intel HD Graphics driver, changing resolution, different cable, different monitor... nothing helps.

I am trying to use a 3rd party external GPU enclosure that attaches via thunderbolt, and when attached, I got the message pop-up that external GPU support was not enabled by the vendor, and as such the device will likely not work? Has Dell locked the Latitude 7480 down to no external GPU support?

A:Latitude 7480 - Thunderbolt 3 - Thunderbolt software say external GPU support not enabled?

Probably.  I read somewhere that since Dell is pushing their Alienware external GPU stuff that uses a proprietary connection, they never enabled external GPU support via Thunderbolt.

Because I didn't liked USB 3.0 ethernet chipsets and USB-based ethernet cannot bear some network-intensive tasks, I wanted to use PCIe-based Thunderbolt ethernet controller on my XPS 15 9550. As there is no Thunderbolt 3 "PCIe" ethernet adapter (except docks), I chose to buy Apple Thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter and Thunderbolt 2-based ethernet adapter.
I plugged it into the XPS 15 9550 (tested with BIOS 1.1.19, 1.2.14, 1.2.16 and latest Thunderbolt firmware with NVM version 16), and the PCIe device did not pop up. Instead, only USB billboard device is appearing saying that "Alternate Mode configuration not attempted". Both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.10 failed to detect the device. I moved this configuration to MSI GS63 laptop, and it detected ethernet controller successfully (that laptop utilizing NVM firmware version 18).
It seems that other vendors are affected with lower NVM firmware version involving setup with Thunderbolt adapter: see the case of Lenovo too. Do you have planned Thunderbolt NVM firmware update for XPS 15 9550? Looks like XPS 13 9360 is using newer Thunderbolt NVM firmware version, though.

I see updates for the Thunderbolt Controller and driver have been released. I see nothing about any "fixes" in the release notes, only "enhancements". This is a little disconcerting since there have been a number of issues with the Thunderbolt controller. A manufacturer of a new Thunderbolt 3 dock has discovered problems with it. Will this controller or any related BIOS settings be fixed?

For some reason the firmware for thunderbolt won't update on my p70. I've tried installing from a command prompt and using the installer. Either way it seems to work but the firmware version doesn't change. I have the hdmi cable connected to a monitor and have the thunderbolt software running. I've rebooted and tried again. I've booted into safe mode then rebooted and tried again. I've uninstalled the thunderbolt controller and tried again all to no avail. Ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.

I did notice, however, that there is a newer firmware available. No biggie, I boot into windows and attempt to flash the update. And then I get the 'no thunderbolt dock found cannot flash...'
So, just how are we supposed to flash firmware on the dock if we don't have a thunderbolt connection?

Following the proper order of manual installations I have so far:

"the Intel thunderbolt controller driver needs to be updated before the thunderbolt firmware can be updated. Please visit Dell website to download the latest version and update the driver. Then re-run this utility"I have redownloaded and removed then installed the Thunderbolt Controller driver a few times not but it still isn't recognized by the Thunderbolt Firmware as being new enough.Here's a screenshot from the Thunderbolt software details pane.Any help to get the Firmware installed would be very much appreciated.

I don't know too much about what's inside a PC as such, but hope to be upgrading, putting money aside for 4 to 5 months time. I'll be getting http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/ to build a system for me at no more than £1500.

I may play the odd game now and then, but mainly into video editing (nothing more than Youtube 720p stuff)

My question is, do I need or is it even necessary to opt for this motherboard called THUNDERBOLT?

I'll be getting the Intel® Core™ i7 960 Quad Core 3.20GHz and only using NVIDIA GTS 450 1GB graphics card as this particular card is a silent operation one and is 12GB RAM a complete overkill as well. I figure the more RAM I have the easier it will be to work on other tasks while video files are being rendered in the background, is this correct?

Anyway, is this THUNDERBOLT (Asus Rampage III Black Edition Intel X58 Chipset) motherboard a wise choice or pointless for what I need a PC for? What exactly would this latest motherboard benefit me by opting for it as opposed to a seriously cheaper one.

Any help much appreciated.

Hello everyone, I was wondering if the Thinkpad P50 will support external  graphics cards via Thunderbolt 3. One product that is available for preorder right now ist the Razer Core which would allow to hook up any GPU with PCIe 3.0 4x speed (but there are several other TB3 egpu enclosures anounced). Razer confirmed that the Core will no prevent other manufacturers from using it but that they might need to do some work on bios and software. I'm a little worried that the P50 might whitelist only some divices over TB3 (as we have seen before with some of the "normal" PCIe slots). Has anybody evidence that it will (not) work, or even has a setup like this currently working? A response, if something like this will be supported, from Lenovo staff would be greatly appreciated. Why would you want this?Spoiler (Highlight to read)Well, the P50 has a formfactor that is still portable and the M1000M / M2000M is powerful enough for work on the go and for some presentations. But for the daily work at my desk I would like to have a little more gpu power. The convenience of having both with one machine is that it eliminates the need to synchronize my softwaresetup and projects between a portable machine and a workstation desktop pc.It also seems like I'm not the only one with a demand like this. If you search for Thinkpad egpu solutions in various forums, you will find several reports of people that added a egpu to their Thinkpad W-Series notebooks. The problem with ... Read more

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. The original installation went just fine, but I never did test to see if transfer speeds were any faster.

Hi There Guys, I've just purchased the latest Spectre X360 specifically because it has thunderbolt three, which I would one day like to use with an external GPU. I've read in some places that HP are specifically blocking the use of external GPU's on these devices which is troubling.  Its been confirmed that the spectre does not work with the Razer core Just wondering if this is true and if anyone knows whether this will likely change as if there is no support i'll be returning the laptop before it arrives! Thanks, Jason

A:Thunderbolt 3 External GPU Compatibility/Support

Not sure how you return it before it arrives but if you bought it thinking it would support an eGPU you just bought a big disappointment sandwich. We have no way to know if HP will ever issue a BIOS that does support the razer and other similar Tbolt eGPUs but they did just modify BIOS on the Spectre 13 to allow some 3rd party USB-C chargers.

Current Lenovo firmware for the EM7455 is 02.20.03.22, however Sierra Wireless has a newer version, 2.24.05.06 listed here: https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airprime/minicard/74xx/airprime-em_mc74xx-approved-fw-pa... After flashing with the newer version and rebooting, the card reverts back to 2.20.03.22. Has anyone else experience this? Is this something the carrier would dictate and enforce? Any help would be appreciated. Reason for upgrading is, when traveling internationally the unit has spotty connectivity and not very reliable. Hoping firmware upgrade would be a step in the right direction to resolving it.

My install of Windows 7 Ultimate on a separate Boot Camp works until I try to install the Apple Boot Camp 4 Support Software. After I do so the system gives me BSOD on restart. I've tried the following suggestions from other threads:

- Renaming/removing AppleHSF.sys and AppleMNT.sys
- Removing BootCamp.exe from msconfig.exe

I've attached the error dumps associated with the BSOD, as well as a screen shot of the BSOD screen.

Windbg suggests that wininit.exe is likely causing the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD on restart after installing Boot Camp 4 Support Software

What mac are you using?

I have a 2006 MacBook Pro core 2 duo which works OK with windows 8.1 x64 with bootcamp 4 - the only issue I have is event monitor saying the hardware is not supported which is obviously rubbish.

wininit.exe is not the problem - it just submits things. Your problem is drivers.

With little explanation (so far at least), Microsoft has decided to cut from Windows Vista planned support for the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI). EFI, the successor to the PC BIOS, has been touted as an operating-system-independent interface that could aid in driver portability. Microsoft has been promising for months, if not years, that Vista would support both BIOS and EFI. According to new information coming out of this week's Intel Developer Forum, Microsoft has decided to drop EFI support entirely for 32-bit Windows variants, and provide EFI support for 64-bit Windows first in Longhorn Server in 2007.
