I received a notification via Tempro that a BIOS upgrade was available. I downloaded the ZIP file (bios-20120209125153.zip), extracted the package (BIOS360_EC140_WIN.exe) and ran it according to the instructions.
The package runs, gives the "Extracting files..." progress bar then displays a dialogue entitled "TOSHIBA BIOS Package Ver.4.1.2" that says: "This BIOS package does not support this operating system."
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a Satellite 830R-143 with the short part no. PT32LE
Value Added Package contains different tools developed by Toshiba.
This package can be downloaded from the Toshiba European driver page.
Note: uninstall the previous installed VAP before installing the new version…
But again: if you have no problems, an update is not really necessary… I always follow this old advice: never change a running system
after upgrade Intel Management Engine Interface v.188.8.131.526 i can not update BIOS - error "This computer is not supported"
The ME Interface provides thermal management for Intel Mainboards. The Intel Management Engine Interface (Intel ME Interface) is the interface between the Intel Management Engine firmware and the host. Drivers and applications on the host that wish to interact with Intel Management Engine through host interface would use the Intel ME Interface host windows driver.
Model: Tecra R850, Portege R830, Satellite Z830, Qosmio F750, Portege Z830, Satellite Pro S750, Tecra R840, Satellite R830, Satellite Pro R850, Satellite R850
Downgade Intel Management Engine Interface to 7.00.02.1164 and/or reinstall Value Update Pack (vap-2011-614162421.zip) does not solve the problem.
