Your PC will support the Q9550 processor as shown in the HP Quickspecs link below (page 9).
You will need to update the BIOS if you get an 1801 processor microcode error.
Otherwise, it should not be necessary.
Since you are running W10, which is an unsupported operating system to run the Windows based BIOS update flash on, use the F10 Setup BIOS flash method to update the BIOS since you will not be in Windows using that method.
