BIOS Upgrades for IBM NetVista

The IBM NetVista is a series of products released by IBM starting in 1996. These products included software programs, kiosks and computer workstations. Basic input/output system (BIOS) is the code that your computer first launches when starting your operating system and it recognises devices installed on your system, including keyboards, hard drives, CD-ROM drives and video cards. If your system is not recognising your newly installed hardware, then you may need to perform a BIOS update, but you should perform a BIOS update only if it's absolutely necessary. You can download all of these updates for free from the Lenovo website.

NetVista 2200 and 6300

This Flash BIOS update is designed specifically for the following versions of NetVista: 2254, 2256, 2257, 6029, 6336, 6337, 6339, 6341, 6342, 6346, 6347 and 6348. This BIOS package includes a file that allows you to create a bootable disk, which is a disk that you insert before your operating system loads on your computer. A bootable disk is especially helpful if you cannot get your computer to normally launch. There is also a compact disc (CD) International Organization for Standardization (ISO) image version of this update. ISO files are image files of either CD or DVD drives which are condensed into a single image file. These BIOS updates are offered in English and Japanese.

NetVista 2200 and 6000

This update was originally released in 2003, and it was designed for the following NetVista models: 2251, 2271, 6058, 6059, 6568, 6569, 6578, 6579, 6599, 6647, 6648, 6649, 6650, 6830, 6831, 6840 and 6841. You can create a bootable disk version of this update or you can run it directly from your operating system. This version of the Flash BIOS update is available in both English and Japanese. If you are unsure of the type of BIOS on your system, you can scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Detect BIOS version" button. It will run a scan on your system, and output the BIOS version. The "Detect BIOS" button is compatible with Windows 98 Standard Edition (SE), Millennium (Me), 2000 and XP.

NetVista 2200, 6300 and 6700

This Flash BIOS update is compatible with the following NetVista models: 2273, 2292, 6043, 6343, 6349, 6350, 6790, 6791, 6792, 6793, 6794, 6795, 6823 and 6825. You can run this BIOS update from either a bootable disk or your operating system, and the update also comes with the documentation associated with the BIOS update. You can print out this information if you need to refer to it during the BIOS installation. There is also a CD ISO image version of this update, but this update is only available in English.
