HP BIOS System Utility not opening

HP Recommended
Victus by HP 16.1 inch Gaming Laptop PC 16-e0000 (2V9A1AV)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello there! I want to create a BIOS recovery drive on my pendrive, and for that, I need to download the BIOS from H Support website and run it on another PC to flash it onto the drive. Here's the guide showing the supposed routine:


So, I went ahead and downloaded the BIOS from here (after selecting Windows 10 manually):


A file named sp132831.exe is downloaded and on running it, these are the screens, as expected:




Quite unexpectedly, it extracts ONLY ONE file at the installation address (C:\SWSetup\SP132831\), called 088EBF09.exe. After extraction, it simply closes and nothing happens after extraction, contrary to the guide video where a BIOS update utlity opened up.


 Since this extracted file is also an executable, I tried opening it up but nothing happens here either.


Please note that the above screenshots are of a non-HP computer (Lenovo). I tried running this utility on an HP laptop too, but the same issue persisted: no utility opens up.


Please help. This seems to be the last hope before I need to replace my ROM on the recently purchased Victus laptop. I have tried Windows+B stuff for BIOS recovery but that does not solve the issue (BIOS boot loop, POST does not clear.)
