    Win10 upgrade on Aspire SW13 - issues with BIOS upgrade


    Hi,

    I'm running an Acer Aspire SW13, 2GB RAM, Windows 10 version 1607

    I get repeated messages saying I must update as this version of W10 won't be supported after April. I can (with difficulty) clear enough disk space to download the updates (the internal memory is only 32GB, so it's challenging), but when the update runs it cannot complete, and advises me to update the BIOS.

    Not withstanding any issues associated with a BIOS update, a check on the Acer website confirms I'm actually running the latest BIOS version.

    Any suggestions as to how to progress or solve this?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi MitchK999. Welcome to the TenForums @MitchK999

    Does your device support using a USB Thumb drive. If so I would use the media creator to create a USB Thumb drive. Need 8GB device. I would also contact Acer and ask them if your device supports the Win 10 V1709.

    Then I would follow this. Note the BIOS settings it recommends, disable secure boot and fast boot. (and of course give it as much free space within your 32GB to work as possible.)

    Excellent news.

    If you get a chance document your steps so others can follow and if you could, mark your thread solved. Others will find.
