    Updates for Surface Devices - Jan. 9, 2018


    Over the next few days, we are releasing updates for several Surface devices, including:

    • Surface Book 2
    • Surface Laptop
    • Surface Studio
    • Surface Book
    • Surface Pro 4
    • Surface Pro 3 (Preview)

    These updates include updated Surface UEFI firmware for each listed device to address potential security vulnerabilities, including Microsoft security advisory 180002. For more information about this advisory and how it affects Surface devices, see Surface Guidance for Customers and Partners: Protect your devices against the recent chip-related security vulnerability.

    For Surface Book, these updates also include drivers for Intel(R) Display Audio, Intel(R) HD Graphics 520, Intel(R) Management Engine Interface, Surface dTPM (IFX), Surface Management Engine, and Surface System Aggregator. These updates improve reliability, audio stability, DirectX 12 and power performance, and system stability; and resolve potential security vulnerabilities, including Microsoft security advisory 170012.

    For Surface Book 2, the updates are available in MSI format from the Surface Book 2 Drivers and Firmware Page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click Download to download the following files:

    • SurfaceBook2_Win10_15063_1801009_1.msi
    • SurfaceBook2_Win10_16299_1801009_0.msi

    For Surface Laptop, the updates are available in MSI format from the Surface Laptop Drivers and Firmware Page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click Download to download the following files:

    • SurfaceLaptop_Win10_15063_1801008_1.msi

    For Surface Studio, the updates are available in MSI format from the Surface Studio Drivers and Firmware Page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click Download to download the following files:

    • SurfaceStudio_Win10_15063_1801006_4.msi
    • SurfaceStudio_Win10_16299_1801006_0.msi

    For Surface Book, the updates are available in MSI format from the Surface Book Drivers and Firmware Page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click Download to download the following files:

    • SurfaceBook_Win10_15063_1801000_2.msi
    • SurfaceBook_Win10_16299_1801000_0.msi

    Note: These updates to TPM firmware require the device to restart twice to complete installation.

    Important!
    Installation of a TPM firmware update on devices in one of the following unrecommended conditions may cause devices to enter a condition in which devices boot to BitLocker Recovery, but cannot boot to Windows even when the correct recovery key is entered:
    • Your device is configured for BitLocker Drive Encryption, and is configured to have a platform validation profile that uses Platform Configuration Register (PCR) values that differ from the default and recommended configuration of PCR 7 and PCR 11.
    • Your device is configured for BitLocker Drive Encryption and has Secure Boot disabled.

    If your device meets one of these conditions, you will have to suspend BitLocker before you install this update. We strongly recommend that devices in these conditions are returned to the default, recommended configuration to have Secure Boot enabled, and validation using PCR 7 and 11. Configuration of Secure Boot or BitLocker PCR values other than default are not recommended on Surface devices.

    For more information about how to correct these conditions or what to do if your device enters a BitLocker Recovery state after you install these updates and can no longer boot to Windows even when you enter the correct recovery key, see KB4052978.

    For Surface Pro 4, the updates are available in MSI format from the Surface Pro 4 Drivers and Firmware Page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click Download to download the following files:

    • SurfacePro4_Win10_15063_1801001_4.msi
    • SurfacePro4_Win10_16299_1801001_0.msi

    For Surface Pro 3, we're releasing this driver as a preview while we work on validating the final release for Windows Update. The update file is available in MSI format from the Surface Pro 3 Drivers and Firmware Page in the Microsoft Download Center. Click Download to download the following files:

    • SurfacePro3_Win10_15063_1801002_1_Preview.msi

    You can identify which file to download for your device by the build number located in the file name. This build number represents the minimum build of Windows required to install the drivers and firmware within that file. For example, the file SurfaceBook2_Win10_16299_1801009_0.msi has a minimum build of 16299, in other words, Windows 10 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update). You can find a full list the build numbers for each Windows 10 version at the Windows 10 release information page.
