edit: resolved downgraded bios form 1.37 to 1.20

i have 2 lenovo t450s, both with upgraded 6 cell Amazon batteries. in the past few days bothcomputers have these same messages when rebooted requiring "escape" to accept the message in order to boot up ... i've removed the lenovo battery management software (didn't help)

seems the message is from the bios (downgrading to 1.36 didn't work), suggestions ?

messages
#1 the battery installed is not supported by this system and will not charge...

#2 this system does not support the batteries that are not genuine lenove authorized. the system will continue to boot, but many not charge batteries. attention lenovo has no responsivity for the performance of unauthorized and provides no warrantee ... . pres ESC key to continue
