Pavilion dv6-6050se bios update

HP Recommended
Pavilion dv6-6050se
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I replace my hard disk from HDD to SSD but there was no change in the performance of Windows (Especially speed).

I find that my bios ver is " HP F.07 3/31/2011" that is too old for change to UEFI, so is my laptop have update for bios ? if not, how to setup new windows 10 without UEFI ?

Note: Ram is upgraded from 4G to 12G.

Yes, the PC is too old to have UEFI instead of BIOS.


Unlike with your PC, I replaced the HDD in my DV6 with an SDD and immediately noticed an increase in performance.  So, I have no idea why yours is not performing better.


When you create Win10 install media, is usually installs OK in a BIOS PC -- at least, that has been my experience.  So, it is not the lack of UEFI mode that is the issue.
