@Nicolò

 

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

Sorry, but the HP Bios updates only run in Windows -- one of the reasons many of us keep Windows around in dual-boot environments with Linux distros.

If you want to experiment, then Google for making a WinPE boot disk (or USB).  You need Windows install media for this, but the version really does not matter.

 

Once you boot from that, you are in a Windows environment, and the BIOS utilities should run OK.  You will have to copy the softpaq file to a USB stick and then try installing in inside WinPE.  That might work.

Good Luck
