hey Scott

I'd read them all, and worked exactly by them...

doesn't solve my problem, as i wrote, the update process stops every time.

thanks

Updates need to be installed incrementally and certain updates need to be installed using the Recovery method...

Hello MOTY ,

 

 

What is the BIOS version you have?

 

If you have an older BIOS version, you will need to update the BIOS incrementally as N. Scott Pearson has mentioned above.

 

Don't update right away to the latest version, do it incrementally.

 

Is your processor a 2nd generation or 3rd generation processor? What is the model?

 

Here is a link for the release notes, there is some warning that you could read.

Ivan
