    Updating BIOS on older equipment


    When going to HP for an upgrade I kept getting the old song and dance about not having the correct system to go with the older computer. I am running Windows 10 Pro, not only that, I am using version 2004 build 19041.113. No BIOS available. Using a little Computer logic I turned to the original system: Windows 7 Pro for the answer, this gave me a current update of Hewlett-Packard K01 v03.08 Date 4/10/2019. Believe it or not, it works fine with Windows 10. A simple download, install, reboot and I am up and running. See my System specs. for the full understanding. My older BIOS was: K01 v02.99 dated 9/15/2015

    This is valid for most other manufacturers. If there is no BIOS (or driver) for Windows 10, try 8 or 7 or Vista (with that order).
