BIOS Update fails

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 1040 G3 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I am trying to update the BIOS from ver 1.02 to 1.25 on a HP EliteBook 1040 G3 Notebook PC and it fails with a message that one or more binary files cannot be found and the update stops. I also tried going to ver 1.09 to bridge the gap and that also returned the same error message. I have been able to update on other HP EliteBook 1040 G3 Notebook PC's with no issues.

Any ideas on why this is happening?

Have you tried both the "Windows able to start" and "Windows does not start" instructions in the HP BIOS update instructions (click) on the support site?
