I have a new battery on order. But its a windows issue, not a battery issue. Im currently attempting to upgrade the bios but the bios utility WINUPTP won't let me do it because my battery level is not detected. I tried modifing the winflash ini file to not check for the battery. That works but I get a message that the bios is not newer when trying to update with one of the files extended .FL1
So I tred to run WinUPTP instead. It is aware of the Bios difference but complains about the battery level:
OS = Windows 10 64bit
System BIOS Version -> 8AET41WW
Applying BIOS Version -> 8AET69WW
System EC Version -> 8AHT27WW
Applying EC Version -> 8AHT42WW
AC adapter/Battery check....Failed.
Error : Your battery needs to be charged to avoid an accidental power-off during an update.
Is there a command line option for turning off the battery check? I know /s is silient, but is there one for the battery check?
