The BIOS does not really have that much to do with the operating system, so you will find the latest BIOS for your system under windows 8.1 OS when you search for it in support centre as the BIOS was released in March 2015 and officially HP doesn't supply win 10 drivers for your system. As you can see you will also find the same BIOS update if you search under windows 7 drivers because the BIOS is not a function of the operating system.
You can install this BIOS with windows 10 installed on your PC and if it is more recent than the one allready on your system it will flash the BIOS and update the Laptop.
Let me know if you need further help,

In the past it use to be "risky" to update the Bios because of the media used "Floppy disk" and other variables.
Nowadays it is easy and in my experience nothing has ever gone wrong. I repair computers every day. The important thing is to make sure to have the power source attached to your computer. To install sownload the file and double click on it and follow the instructions. It is recommended to have Bios updated to latest version as you can read here for your latest Bios:
Hope it helps,
