Solved!

BIOS Upgrade from F40 to F41

HP Recommended
Omen #870-119
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Late last week there was an update through HP Support Assistant for my desktop, Omen #870-119. The update was the BIOS from F40 to F41. I wished that I didn't allow them to upgrade the BIOS in the first place. Because I ran the application, " InSpectre " that show me in a box with  Vulnerable to Meltdown: --  NO   Vulnerable to Spectre: -- YES  and Performance: GOOD. I waas wondering if I should roll back to F40 or not worth to try. Just leave it as is with F41. Before the upgrade with BIOS and the application, " InSpectre " show me all are good with those two lines -- NO. And now I got one with YES and other is NO.  I know that I should not be in a panic button about this. Just curious to see if there is worth trying to roll back BIOS or not.

 

Thank you,

 

John

@jpmackay1

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂 

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers. 

 

As I understand you need information about the recent BIOS update,

I'd like to thank you for the detailed description of your concern,

 as you have ensured I don't have to ask any more questions, that said, if the device is working fine and you have no issues with it after the update to BIOS, I wouldn't recommend going back to the older version, as newer updates are created to resolve specific issues that may have been present in the earlier version.

 

If you wish to rollback either way: Click here for steps.

I hope that answers your query!

 

If you would like to thank me for my efforts to help you,

Have a great day!
