Hi there @cardinalsfan3337 and welcome to PCHF :)

First question, why are you trying to update the BIOS? Updating it is very dangerous if done incorrectly.

Second question, What motherboard do you have?
HI thank you for your help my motherboard is AAHD2-HY (Holly2) and I want to upgrade my bios because I was wanting to play Mafia 3,Dread Rising 4 I was able to run Mafia III on Windows 8.1 but before I could play it my hard drive crashed and I upgraded to Winodws 10 when I got my new HD is there a way to install Windows 8.1 on the same hard drive so that I dont lose all my stuff once again thank you for your help.

Hello cardinalsfan3337,


Hi I own a HP Pavilion p6-2143w desktop
This is an older computer, was it originally running Windows 7.

Can I also ask how you come to have Windows 10 Education installed if you own the computer.
