HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13-w0XX bios updates fail with Region is writeprotected

HP Spectre x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

3 bios updates for my new notebook have been available over the past month of ownership.  All 3 updates failed at the end of the process with a message saying "c2-Error: Region is write-protected".  The latest one is SP78334 version F.10Ap1.  The good news is that the system still works after the failure without any boot.

Hello JWW2,

 

Please check is there a BIOS Password set on your PC 

Try to restore BIOS to defaults and see if you get the same error
