I haven't used Adobe Flash in years. Any web site still using it isn't worth my time.

How do you open a Lenovo BIOS simulator .SWF-file such as this?

More such BIOSes can be found here.

As you mentioned flash player support for browsers are dropped , however it is mentioned internet explorer still has native flash support to open .swf files , that needs to be enabled by add ons /shockwave flash object/enable/temporarily, Also from the link you provided you can use projector content debugger.
As far as i can search depending on the type of the .swf file (video/music/video+music/active animation) some can be opened with standart players like gnome/VLC, (Assuming a bios simulator to be interactive ) active /interactive ones like the bios .swf you linked to needs a player like swfileplayer. Dreamviewer is another option. I can think also some emulators may be helpful.

I have not tried myself , but hope that helps.

Apart from the .swf downloads you pointed to , a search in support returns this , kind of interactive web based version. (674 Simulators)

Old(er) BIOS simulators (until xx30 Series) can be found on my link.
They are downloadable and need a flashplayer.

New(er) versions (from ~xx30/xx40 Series onward) can be found at Vopu's above bsco/index.html link.
BUT, those new(er) simulators are NOT downloadable, and also don't need a flashplayer.
