I have linux installed on my HP laptop and I want to update the bios.
According to all the docs I have read I should be able to run the bios update utility from a different windows 10 computer and create a bios update USB drive.
I went to my laptops support page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-spectre-13-4000-x360-convertible-pc/7527520/mode...
I downloaded the BIOS update from here: http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp77501-78000/sp77784.exe
Ran it on a different windows 10 laptop to create the USB, but when I run the installer nothing happens.
This process is detailed in this doc which says at some point I should be asked whether I want to create a USB: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00042629
