V.T. Eric Layton Posted July 7, 2021 Share Posted July 7, 2021 Hey Windows pros, I have a pal on Diaspora (@Joseph Teller, you may know him, Josh) who just posted that a Win 10 BIOS upgrade bricked his wife's computer. Is this really possible? Is Win 10 actually futzing with BIOS on systems these days? This is new to me. I always understood that BIOS had to be upgraded manually via software and instructions from the computer manufacture or the mobo manufacturer. Has this changed in Win 10? If so, that's SCARY! I have Win 10 on my main system. It's crippled (no Networking), but I would still be nervous because I do turn on Networking occasionally to get updates. I would NOT want Windows to be upgrading the BIOS on this machine. Please elaborate on this, Window folks. This GNU/Linux user isn't that will versed in MS these days. Thanks.
