Tried to update bios from version 01.06.00 to 01.07.00 using Network updater, USB local update ( HP_TOOLS \EFI\HP\BIOS\New\), Windows update and it is not working. Net update don't even show the version 01.07.00 available and don't want to make a downgrade to version 01.04.00 - network initialization stucks  ( usually  takes 20 sec - waited for several minutes, but no luck). Other upgrade types just says that image is not valid. Tried several times to download a fresh binary, but just don't want to work.

Up to now I was able to normally perform BIOS network update from 01.04.00 to 01.05.00 and from 01.05.00 to 01.06.00. Seems that version 01.06.00 has some issues, since I am not able to go back to 01.04.00 either.

 

Has anyone update BIOS from 01.06.00 to 01.07.00?

A week after attempt, the network update showed the BIOS update version properly, but the update hang on configuring networks. After setting default BIOS settings and retried network update restarted working again and successfully updated BIOS to v01.07.00.
