I updated the BIOS of an HP compaq 6710b laptop from within windows. I have downloaded the latest update from HP site of course. After rebooting the system the system give a message indicating that the update process failed and this might be resolved by updating two consecutive times (which didn't work of course). When I contacted HP support they told be to reset the BIOS and then update it afterwards. As a matter of fact the original BIOS version is so old that there's quite few updates reaching the latest.
I was fortunate enough that I'm able to boot the system
now, how can I resolve this failed update?
