Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I don't have an issue per se as much as of this is a question/enquiry. I wanted to upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11, and to do that I needed to update the BIOS so that I can get access to the TPM setting. I've updated the BIOS once previously on this device. This time I downloaded the update from the HP site officially and everything, and I've disabled my antivirus protection and Bitlocker as instructed. I've opened the installer, and tried to install the update like last time, but this time when I selected update it said "The BIOS update may not fully update in legacy flash method" and it said for me to create a recovery dongle, which I did. I exited the installer and created a recovery USB dongle successfully, and then I ran the installer again. This time I chose "Only update BIOS region" and continued. Then the installer proceeded to flash the BIOS while still running Windows 10, and after that it rebooted twice and "Flashing Boot Block" appeared twice and finished. After that my laptop went back to normal, and I could normally access the BIOS with the TPM setting available for me to change. My question is if I did the installation correctly, or if I'm worrying that I somehow messed up for nothing. I'll attach two screenshots below from the installation. Sorry if the first one is kind-of blurry, and .for any inconveniences.

Thanks in advance,

Dimchez.

To get the answer to this question, it seems like you've installed the BIOS image successfully.
