  • ThinkPad key
  • removing PSU then rebooting
  • or someone has even suggested (for windows 10 UEFI only) “C:> shutdown /fw /r /t 10”

NOTE : despite what the online docs say the windows store windows 10 lenovo vantage app does NOT detect same updates as the native windows 7 & 10 lenovo system update app
