Hey guys...I too have a 700-329 and was getting the message from the HP Support Assistant that the Bios needed to be updated...I tried it, and it said it didn't update. My current Bios if I look at system info is 80.20...is it correct that this is the current version, and I should not have a need to update further?

Hi, I got a 700-329 too. Specifically this one:
Model #: 700-329
Product #: G4A95AA#ABL
Serial #: MXX#######
Software Build #: 14AM2RRA603#SABL#DABL
Service ID #: 20140610
Model 2AF7 (SOCKET 0)
Chipset Vendor Intel
Chipset Model Haswell
Chipset Revision 06
Southbridge Vendor Intel
Southbridge Model H87
Southbridge Revision C2
System Temperature 48 °C
BIOS Brand AMI
I've updated it to Windows 10 and a Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB SSD. Everything is running great and my tech knowledge is strong. The original HDD is still there, now plugged into SATA1; the SSD is on SATA0.
I haven't tried to update the 8015 to 8020 yet; I'm wondering if I should (take the risk) or just leave it as is.
Is there a problem in 8015 that 8020 has fixed or is there some features added?
Would I notice any difference after updating to 8020?
Is there any security or hardware risk in staying with 8015?
Thanks in advance,

I started this thread back in March and found my own way to update to 8020. It worked fine for me as there hasn't been any issues since, but I come from the DOS days & took matters into my own hands so to speak.
Go back to the top of page 1 of this thread & you'll see my origianl post at the top.
Your system actually has an earlier BIOS version than mine did before I updated. I had 8016 before I did the manual update to 8020. So, I would say yes, there has to be a security issue with your system since HP as I quote below published there was.

OK. I will give it a try on Saturday morning. So far my only BIOS update was Amiga WorkBench 1.3 to 2.0. And that was done by replacing a CMOS chip and using a new set of WB floppies. Different times ...
I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for letting me know. Yes, the days of booting from 5 1/4 inch floppies on my first Amstrad.
