Re: Need help updating Bios
I don't mean to be critical, but your questions about using Ubuntu and/or Vista to do a BIOS upgrade lead me to believe that you've NOT actually done a BIOS upgrade before.
This is the most risky thing you can do to a PC!!
IF anything goes wrong, you will end up with an "electric brick" -- as, after that, NOTHING will work.
The very first thing you should do, after you have all the items needed, is back up your existing BIOS. The BIOS update programs generally provide an option to do that. At least that way, if the upgrade goes wrong, you will have a way to restore the current BIOS.
Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
