Hello all,

Simple question, should I or do I need to turn off Secure Boot/TPM in my BIOS, before updating the BIOS?
I am planning on performing the update in the near future and when I went in to look at the process, a warning message came up stating that it is recommended all security features are to be turned off, including bitlocker, before performing the update.
Note that I am not using bitlocker.


Thank you.

Is there a compelling reason to want to update your bios?
Usually one only does so to fix a problem that is impacting you.

When you update a bios the resulting bios will be set to default so you may as well do that up front.

Not really, other than the fact that the patch notes state memory management has gotten more efficient with almost every update iteration that I don't have.
It's more about me being anal. Maybe it is best I just leave it alone, though.
