HP Compaq 8200 Elite Convertible MiniTower
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi. I own a HP Compaq 8200 Elite Convertible MiniTower. I used to run Windows 7 pro on this machine and I recently installed Windows 10 pro on it. Someone suggested I update the UEFI. I didn't see a Bios update for my operating system listed at HP support here: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-compaq-8200-elite-convertible-minitower-pc/50379...  I was wondering if it was possible to still update the bios? The information at these links below made me think it might be.

However I didn't try to update anything because I've heard the bios is sensitive and the computer might not start if it's modified incorrectly. I think my bios is at 2.25 and my motherboard is listed as a Hewlett-Packard 1494 (SOCKET 0) in the Speccy 64bit tool.  Please let me know how to proceed.
