Doubts about the BIOS update for my model with the current OS instaled.

HP Pavilion dv4-1120br
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good Morning,

 

I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1120br, I know this HP notebook model is old, but i've instaled the Windows 10 64bits on my machine and saw that my BIOS is version F.30 and the last one available from the HP website is F.66 A.

 

The problem is this model doesn't have suport for Windows 10 because, like i said, is too old. Can I download and run the BIOS update for Windows 7 64 bits available from the website, or do I need to downgrade my OS to Windows 7, update the BIOS and then upgrade it again to Windows 10?

 

Thanks for the help!

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

Your second guess is correct -- as the BIOS updates on the HP site are OS version-specific and if you try to run the one for Win7 in Win10,it will refuse to run.


Good Luck

WAWood,

Thank you!

 

Can I ask you one more question?  If I downgrade the OS and update the BIOS, can I encounter any problems if I want to later upgrade the OS to Win 10 again?

 

I'm starting to think that updating the BIOS is a bad idea.

 

Thanks again for yout support!
