How to Downgrade of the current BIOS version?

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

At the moment my PC is running on the BIOS 80.16 Rev.A , but I would like to bring back my previous BIOS 80.08 Rev.A.
Please could you let me know what I need to do? Is it just to download the BIOS 80.08 Rev.A file and run it?
Thank you.

If BIOS 80.16 Rev.A is installed, I am sorry to inform you that you cannot revert back.  In the notes area of BIOS 80.16 Rev.A it states -

NOTE: Due to security changes, after this BIOS update is installed, previous versions cannot be reinstalled.
