Compaq CQ58-215SW
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello .
Looking for BIOS updates for Compaq laptop CQ58-215SW, BIOS is currently in version F 13. In this version doesn't have the possibility to enable / disable the AHCI Mode - which is problematic when installing WIN XP , attaching the SATA driver to system image doesn't help

Update BIOS F. 13 Insyde

Hello,

 

I have an ultrabook with the same bios version.

BIOS Version: F.13

BIOS Vendor: Insyde

 

Product name: HP ENVY Sleekbook 4 PC

 

Can I also install this BIOS update? I cannot run bootable USB Drive with Linux (Windows 10 just starting) and I even cannot run boot menu pressing F9 during startup. I hope bios update resolve all my issues.

I downloaded "Driver Assist" and the put dozens of corrupt files on my computer so I would have to purchase another product from them to remove the files. I went to geek squad and they gave me a detailed list of where the corrupted files came from. This is not a safe site.
