I want to update my Bios before I install windows 8. I have a 32 bit HP pavillion 2718us laptop. It came with Vista home premium and I updated it to windows 7 Ulitimate knowing that HP would not support it with firmware/bios updates.
Would it be possible/wise to create a partition and install a dual boot of Vista from the system recovery DVD and then update my bios from the HP site using the Vista partitian.
Or do I need to make a shadow copy of windows 7 and then revert to the factory version of Vista, update the bios and then reinstall windows 7 from the shadow copy?
Any chance HP will support this computer for windows 8. Microsoft states that any Vista PC is upgradible to Windows 8?
