Solved!

BIOS update - my OS version isn't listed in the BIOS version I want to update to

HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,


I need a quick info. I would like to update my BIOS. The current version is F.00  - 07/03/2013 and I would like to update it to the F.27 Rev.A - 25/07/2016 version. However, Win 10 (which is the OS I'm using) isn't listed as a supported OS for this BIOS (the latest supported version for Win is Win 8.1 64 bit). I would like to know if I can still download and use the BIOS F.27 Rev.A 25/07/2016 version even though the latest listed OS is Win 8.1 64 bit, while I'm using Win 10 64 bit?

Thanks.

Dear Customer,

 

BIOS update is for the Chipset and doesnt matter if the unit has WIN 8 or WIN 10.

As it says BIOS-Basic Input Output System

The BIOS is a computer chip on the motherboard.

We still recommend you to update the unit with latest available BIOS VER for chipset to perform better.

 

 

 

Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again
