    Updating BIOS and activation


    Hello.

    A quick question. I purchased my Win10 license using the Windows Store. I don't even know the key.

    What would happen if I want to update my BIOS. What is the best way (and painless one) to proceed?

    Thanks.

    :)

    Updating BIOS and activation

    Updating your bios will not affect activation.
    You have digital entitlement from the Store which uses the generic key only. Even if you had a key embedded in the bios - that area is read-only and does not get overwritten with a bios update.
