Hi wajhiuddin,

You can tell Windows Update to defer updates to the OS, which should hopefully also defer updates to the firmware as well.

Search for Windows Update Settings from the Windows Start menu, at the bottom of the Settings window should be a link for Advanced Options. From there you can click on the Defer Upgrades checkbox which will stop Windows from automatically updating your Surface Pros.

Hope this helps!
