Updating the bios averatec
The archive should also contain a README file that will walk you through updating to the new BIOS.
You should check out this file for instructions that apply specifically to your hardware, but we’ll try to cover the basics that work across all hardware here.
If there’s a problem with the new BIOS version, you may be able to downgrade it by downloading an older version from the manufacturer’s website and repeating the flashing process.
Second opinion] HP 8200 all-in-one: A few months ago, Win 10 did an update and left my hard drive with over 700 partitions. I tried a key from my other Win 7 Home Prem and it took it. Customer: I can start and load windows, but no networks.

On Windows 7, 8, or 10, hit Windows R, type “msinfo32” into the Run box, and then hit Enter.
The BIOS version number is displayed on the System Summary pane. Different motherboards use different utilities and procedures, so there’s no one-size-fits-all set of instructions here.
However, you’ll perform the same basic process on all motherboards.
