Updating the bios file
Also note that if you try to update a HP BIOS and you have bitlocker enabled there is a suspend bitlocker switch which I haven’t needed to use. Here is a link to the HP BIOS Configuration Utility Guide which also explains how you can you generate a file if required.
Click i DRAC Settings Update and Rollback in the left pane.Now I cannot recover or rollback the bios to F.21 it says (Unable to find bios signature file) when I rollback or update to F.21. When I update it to F.24 A again while it is installed already it doesn not ask that (unable to find bios signature file). It is in a format that I do not recognize and either does my operating system. Would some explain to me how I would install the CAP file to update my BIOS. More specifically the fact that I’ve needed to apply them to some of my older HP Desktops and Laptops so we could deploy Windows 10 1511 reliably.Moving forwards this was going to be an issue as we are looking to upgrade our entire business to Windows 10 CBB later in the year.
I definitely did not want to be in a position where we were manually updating BIOS versions.
Recently I have update my laptop bios from F.21 to F.24 A.
After updating bios my laptop battery shuts down within 1.5 hour while before updating bios I use my laptop for 4 hours.
Create a folder for the model of PC relevant to the BIOS update, then set a WMI Query so it will only run against that model.
This is what you would most likely be doing for driver packages.
For older models that use Hpq the contents should look like this: And for newer models that use the contents should look like this: Once this has been completed, create a package for each BIOS update without a program and distribute them to your DP’s.
