I have an HP Compaq 6735s, with windows 7 x64 and BIOS version F.0E.
I never installed the F.20 version because of the problems many people seemed to have with it and because at the release notes it clearly states that "After this BIOS update has been installed, prior BIOS versions cannot be installed."
I wonder if it is the same with version F.21, because I just want to make sure that in case I am not happy with it, I can always roll back to F.0E
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you Nikhil_HP. It's good to know, so I won't take the risk. They say "if it ain't broken, don't fix it". I generally try to keep my PC updated, but changing the BIOS can be tricky. Especially when one reads about the previous update (F.20).
Somehow I feel that they should mention in the release notes that downgrate is not possible, like they did with F.20.

In my opinion, you should only upgrade/update any software or Firmware if you have any issue with your hardware. Otherwise let it be left as it is.
Some 3rd party systemboards do support BIOS recovery but its not possible in this case.

I used to to do all updates, mainly for security reasons, but recently I realized that I kind of prefer certain old versions of software, cuz they work better for me or the updates are not as stable (at least when combined with other software on my PC). So, yes I agree with you. Thanks alot.
