BIOS links are all bad

Apparently Lenovo broke the old IBM support URLs completely so none of the BIOS links here work. Twt (talk) 16:41, 21 February 2015 (CET)

Strangely enough, the LAST link on the page, identifying a way to identify a machine by its BIOS, DOES still work.... Twt (talk) 16:53, 21 February 2015 (CET)

I haven't found a way to make the old links work so I added links to the model selector pages. The only reason I haven't wiped all the old links is JUST IN CASE there's some useful information embedded there (such as model number abbreviations). Otherwise I say it's begging to be simplified and maybe combined with the other BIOS pages. Twt (talk) 18:58, 21 February 2015 (CET)

BIOS update on x200 w/o Windows?

I'm looking for a way to update the BIOS of my new x200, which is running 64bit GNU/Linux exclusively. I don't have a dock/external CD driver. Is there a way to do the update without installing Microsoft Windows to my hard driver or obtaining a suitable CD drive? --Colo 23:18, 16 December 2008 (CET)
