No HP Tools Partition/Updating UEFI-BIOS

HP Recommended
Elitebook 8570w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I have recently got a HP Elitebook 8570w (used/refurbished). I want to update my bios. My version is F.03 and latest is F.71 Rev.A (link). I want to backup my current bios so I can revert incase of failure. A little newbie regarding this matter. Do I need the hp tools partition. How do I create it? How to backup and restore BIOS. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I haved switched to from bios to uefi mode. Don't know the next steps!

You might not be able to do a backup.

 

I've used BIOS laptops for years and in every case, when I did a BIOS update, the HP routine offered me the option to insert a USB stick and make a backup of the existing BIOS.  It was built into their BIOS update routine.

 

But then two days ago, I updated the BIOS on a new HP laptop, one that uses UEFI, and no such option was offered.  I accepted the update and suddenly, it was doing the update and rebooted. There was no option to do a backup first.
