I have recently been working on updating BIOS’s for a fleet of various Lenovo models and I started getting all sorts of different return codes from them. They were not standard SCCM codes so I had to lookup what these return codes were. Below is a table to show all the return codes you get from installing a BIOS on a Lenovo device.

Return CodeValueDescription
RET_SUCC_REBOOTING0BIOS update is successful and system will reboot. (normal update)
RET_SUCC_NOTREBOOTING1BIOS update is successful and system does not reboot. (silent update)
RET_UNDEFINED-1WINUPTP Option is undefined.
RET_FAIL_DRIVER_LOAD-2Driver(tpflhlp.sys) failed to load.
