Hi, @Manish-Mahind 

 

Here is the link to the last BIOS update (F.2E -  December 15, 2008) HP released for the dv2700 models with the Intel processors...

The update was designed to be run using Windows Vista.

@Manish-Mahind 

You won't be able to run the HP BIOS update files in Linux.

 

I'm sorry, but HP does not provide support for Linux distros -- including boot and installation issues.

IF you replace the preloaded Windows OS with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.

Modern PCs with UEFI, instead of the older BIOS, are especially difficult to install because you have to go into the UEFI settings and make several changes before you can even boot from a USB stick -- and we are unable to assist in that work.

Your best bet for support now is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.
