upgrading to Windows8

I purchased a new hp635 notebook on June 18,2012 with Windows7 home premium.   I noticed from another entry that there are BIOS updates required for USB 3.0 ports for an upgrade to Windows 8.   My computer uses 2.0 USB ports.  Any known BIOS updates for my computer?

Hi,

 

BIOS won't make USB 2 ports become USB 3 ports.

 

Regards.

Re: upgrading to Windows8

When are you seeing the information suggesting you require the upgrades? Is this appearing during the upgrade as one of the "Items that need to be addressed" before you can install Windows 8?
