Bios upgrade

Hello @mikemotyka,

 

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums! The forums are a great place where you can find solutions for your issues, with help from the community!

 

I came across your post about the BIOS issue, and wanted to help!  I understand that you are looking to update your BIOS.

 

You can usually find BIOS updates available for your product on the HP site.  You can update the BIOS using the following document: HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS

 

However, it seems that there are no Windows 7 BIOS drivers available for your product, on the HP site.  There is a BIOS update for the Windows Vista Operating System.  You can find drivers for your product here: Drivers - HP Pavilion dv9548us Notebook PC

 

Try reviewing the document for updating the BIOS first, and let me know the results.

Bios upgrade

The laptop originally came with Vista but I updated it to Win 7.  I'm now trying to update to Win 10.  It keeps failing.  I get to 32% completed in the coping files section and 6% in the installing features and drivers.  I did update the BIOS and the other updates that appeared when I switch the look up to Vista but I got the same results when I tried to upgrade to Win 10.  Are there any know issues with this laptop that prevents it from being upgraded?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Bios upgrade

Hello @mikemotyka,

 

Thank you for the quick reply!

 

For future reference, this is a separate issue from the original topic.  If the issue with the BIOS is resolved, then you would need to create a new post, or start a new topic about the issues with upgrading to the Windows 10 Operating System.  

 

There seems to be no drivers available for your product, on the HP site, that supports the Windows 10 Operating System.  If you are able to upgrade successfully, then you may experience some performance issues, or lose of features.  If you would still like to upgrade, then try upgrading using the following tool: Media Creation Tool

 

Here is some additional information that may be useful to you:
