Formosa Motherboard bios upgrade to version 8 while on windows 10

h9-1120t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all, I recently purchased a PNY  GTX 1060 DirectX 12 VCGGTX10606PB 6GB video card.   I though I had done my homework but the computer wouldn't recognize the card...gave 3 beeps 20 seconds apart during boot up.  Having done a little more research I think the version 7 bios on the Formosa motherboard is the problem (or at least one of the problems!).  I can find the version 8 bios update, but it says that it's for windows 8.  

 

So...my question is...is it safe to update the bios to version 8 while running windows 10

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Run a complete set of hardware diagnostics before attempting to update the BIOS. A safety factor that you might consider is placing your PC on UPS before doing the BIOS update.

 

HP has indicated that HP Windows 8 installers should work on Windows 10.
