    windows 10

    PC restarted mid BIOS update now wont boot.


    Will the windows 10 ISO from Microsoft boot my PC after I accidently restarted it during a BIOS update or do I have to use the windows 10 image from DELL that they say I must and that I cant get to download completely?

    If you interrupted it during the flashing of a bios upgrade then you are probably looking at a motherboard replacement, unless you can replace the bios chip. What happens when you turn the computer on now? What error do you get?

    Some models also have BIOS recovery procdures. Google as much as you can :-) Reflashing the chip is also possible.

    Google is your best friend :-) Here's an example.

    Thanks for all the advice thankfully I was able to get everything going again with the windows 10 ISO downloaded from microsoft plus I dont have all the extra Dell stuff that they add. I'M not sure exactly what was the problem but I do know it stemmed from restarting during the bios upgrade. Any ways thanks again
