I use Hiren's Boot CD to update BIOS.exe BIOS upgrades on Linux machines. Works well.

+1
Works as live-USB too.

An another choice is to use FalconFour CD or USB.

administrollaattori,
Thanks. I will add the FalconFour to my collection.

Yes, I forgot that any Windows installation/boot media can be used for running BIOS flashers. OK, just went with Windows PE.

Managed to run the flasher successfully. It really upgraded my BIOS!

And guess what. No change :roll:

Edit: Will try the various options in /etc/default/grub.

Cigydd, some thoughts / suggestions... try checking the grub parameters suggested in this thread:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/question ... 175561250/
In the 2nd page above, there's also a nice script that emulates REISUB as a temporary solution...

On the log, i noticed:
Nov 23 23:56:05 pavel kernel: [ 0.107419] ACPI: Using IOAPIC for interrupt routing
Nov 23 23:56:05 pavel kernel: [ 0.107469] PCI: Using host bridge windows from ACPI; if necessary, use "pci=nocrs" and report a bug
You might wanna try that parameter...(maybe also noapic?)

From what i see in Lenovo's site, the latest BIOS update for that model appears to be from 2015/08/13?
You could try enabling the latest microcode in driver manager as well, although i doubt this will fix it...

Good point, thx-1138! Personally wasn’t able to see this in the log. Will try that setting.

Tried all the GRUB options that Joe2Shoe suggested:

Code: Select all

# GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noacpi"
# GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="reboot=acpi"
# GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="reboot=efi"
# GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="reboot=pci"
# GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="reboot=ahci"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
# GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset"
Also tried the pci=nocrs setting that thx-1138 suggested.

In a frenzied assault, I also tried to combine more options in one command line:

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noapic noacpi pci=nocrs reboot=ahci"
But nothing worked. So I tried the cpufrequtils path that Joe2Shoe suggested. Followed all the steps and enabled the Intel SpeedStep Technology. It also didn’t help.
So what to try next? Any other options? Is there any way I could contact the kernel developers and ask them if they plan to add support for my system?
Noticed the 18.3 upgrade in the Update Manager. Will try that.

Edit: I also updated the Intel processor microcode. Also didn’t help.

The GRUB fix I used worked, until I put a new 1TB HDD in that laptop, then installed LM18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit from a live CD.
The laptop shutdown and restarted normally for several days, until I installed all recommended updates. Then, BAMMO!
Will not shutdown/restart normally.
And, my previous fix doesn't work, either.
Go figure.

Thank you for your report, Joe2Shoe.
You could maybe try with an older kernel that worked. But who knows?

Did you update the grub if you added a new kernel? Maybe some files are dependent on booting to the new kernel?
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
