BIOS update for P500

2013-12-05, 22:40 PM

There is a BIOS update listed for the P500, Windows 8 systems, dated 10/31.  Does this update apply to Windows 8.1?  I am naturally cautious about updating the BIOS on my machine to the wrong version!

 

Thanks for your help.

hi jaybo,

 

The BIOS updated posted in this article is intended only for Windows 8 systems. If you have upgraded to Windows 8.1 and would like to apply the changes mentioned in the readme.txt, then you would need to go back to Windows 8 and run the BIOS update to prevent any errors.

 

Note:

Ensure that you backup the current BIOS (i.e. using Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit or similar) and all of  your important files just in case something goes wrong along the way.

 

 

Regards

I have Windows  8.1 and updated with that bios version a few days ago.

I haven't experienced any problems.

Glenn
