Bios update after update to Windows 10

HP Elite 8200 CMT
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I have updated my HP Elite 8200 CMT from windows 7 to windows 10.

 

In the HP driver download page, there is no BIOS update for windows 10.

 

But I have noticed that there is BIOS update for Windows 7. 

 

The question is, may I use it on Windows 10 ? 

 

And in general, are BIOS updates OS dependant ?

Bios update after update to Windows 10

Hi:

 

You can pull the DOS based flash file folder out of the BIOS package, copy just the contents of the DOS flash folder to a USB flash drive formatted with the FAT file system.

 

Plug the flash drive in a usb port, restart the PC, tap the ESC key to get the menu of options.

 

Select the F10 System setup option to gain access to the BIOS.

 

Select the File menu>Flash system ROM command.  Select the USB flash drive.

 

The PC will see the files on the flash drive.  Follow the on screen prompts to update the BIOS.

 

That way it makes no difference what operating system you are running.

 

One very important note...I have read the installing the latest BIOS 2.29 causes issues with W10.

 

There is a forum post regarding that...

I am running v2.28 on my HP 8200 Elite CMT, and have no issues at all on W10.

 

I read that post and decided not to update the BIOS to v2.29.
