Hello to all HP community.
Today I was trying to update Omen Accelerator connected to HP x360 G2. The previous fw version was 0104 and the new one 0126 i think. At first the Result said Pass but after that there was message box that said it was failed and that I should try again. When I tried it again I had the same result and the version of firmware was still 0104. Two times just after the update I had Windows blue screen.

OK. Is there a reason for needing to update the firmware or were you just updating it because its there?
You might try installing it in Safe Mode to see if it installs successfully.
Otherwise, If you are not having any issues with performance or with the gfx card installed, I would leave it as is.
Let me know what happens.

Right now I can't use the Safe Mode - I don't have bitlocker key to unlock my hard drive on Safe mode. I will try to get it.
Regarding the your proposal of not installing the firmware. As I work in IT I do understand this solution 🙂 but as a customer of respected company that is HP i expect that if the firmware is released on their site should work flawless. I have read many coments on different sites and many users have the same problem with this firmware so something could be not right.
Besides that I have 2 weeks to return the Accelerator and I want to make sure it works so I want to update all the released software. I also have problems with stability when the USB headset is connected to the Accelerator - some crashes and BSOD. Also other usb devices (mouse and keyboard) connected to it have sometimes little lags and freezes.

Then we understand each other as I have no power to make HP produce any firmware at this moment. They will release it when they do. In the mean time...
You will make better gains by contacting HP Support directly and reporting your issues as they are not connected with this forum. More complaints, usually means faster results if you know what I mean.
Do let me know if you find the solution before you return it.

I'm afraid that I've got the same problem, though the newest version (released 28.03) won't install either. The only difference is that I've got a Dell XPS 15 9560 and another model: 1QZ13EA, the GA1-1010nd.
