Solved!

Silent BIOS install/deployment Pavilion X360 S100 and S125

HP Recommended
Pailion X360 13-S100
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is it posible to silently update the BIOS of a HP Pavilion X360 13 S100nd?

Inside the update sp73593.exe are some files like "InsydeFlash.exe" but don't know how to run it sillently.

 

I know its a consumer model, but we've got 110 of them, so manually is a lot of work.

 

Thanks in advance.

Found a partial sollution. You can edit the "platform.ini" file and "turn on" silent mode. This works fine unless you use Bitlocker. You'll get a message box that Bitlocker must be disabled and that the flashprogam does this temporarely for you.
Hopefully I'll find a way to anwser that automatically also.


I solved this as followed (all are new laptops and OS installations):
Edited the platform.ini file as discribed above.
Made a package in sccm
Added the package in a tasksequence. Run this package BEFORE you enable bitlocker and add a "reboot computer" task. BIOS gets updateted and after that the task sequence resumes.
