HP ENVY 17t-k000 CTO Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR) Bios Update Question

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 17t-k000 CTO Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Hp Support Assistant wants me to update my bios . . . 

 

I have two questions in regard to this.

 

1. The software to flash the bios is not compatiable with windows 10.  Will it be safe to run anyways? (yes, i installed free upgrade to windows 10)

 

 

2.  sp71055.exe  f42.ap1 (is the file it is recomended to run for my intel i7, the patch notes (always never enough information) state that it restores or provides original bios. 

 

my instaled bios version is 

bios verson / date f/34. 12 19 2014

 

On a previous occasion i believed i did flash the bios already, and was wondering if I needed to restore to the original version, or is that languague used a little 'off'
