I had started with upgrading bios from v2.9 and now am at v3.03 (probably would have updated to v3.04 by the time this thread would get any traction). I think I need to go further to upgrade to v3.08 but here are my issues:
1. One of the links as mentioned in one of the replies in this thread is opening without any resources and has message saying as below and I have no clue or means to access to revision history sections to retrieve what at all bios versions are available for download. Can someone please help me with those versions?
HP Customer Support site is temporarily unavailable.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check back later.
2. The exact purpose of this bios upgrade exercise is to make the system to be able to recognize and pick up the Kubuntu 20.04 LTS bootable media (USB & a DVD) and let me install the OS from them. But I've been unable to do so, thus far, therefore resorted to this exercise. If Someone has a better solution to my problem, in these given circumstances, then please suggest those steps. Im all ears!
Unfortunately I do not know of any resource where you can update the BIOS in Linux.
As long as you have access to a Windows PC, you can always run any potential BIOS update file on that PC and put the DOS files on a USB flash drive to update the BIOS using the F10 BIOS flashing setup method.
You can update the BIOS that way even if you didn't have a hard drive installed.
