I have my enable TPM / Import REPSET file steps before my Update BIOS steps in my task sequence.
This is to ensure that the devices BIOS settings are always configured with a password before my BIOS update step runs.
The general recommendation is: you’re fine, until you start noticing hardware compatibility issues.
Here we’ll show you how to safely update your UEFI BIOS.
It’s a myth that BIOS updates somehow make your computer faster or run better.
In some rare instances, a BIOS update can fix a motherboard issue that might make your computer perform better, but it’s usually not related to speed.
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.The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) acts as a trigger of sorts, checking for and activating your hardware.It also dictates boot devices, CPU boost software, overclock settings, and several other parameters. 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.You will be asked to enter the recovery key every time you restart your computer unless you suspend and resume Bit Locker.
