from the private message, MF posted Bios download link:
Per MF private mesage--
In the Windows system, unzip the downloaded bios file in the desktop folder, and then run the BAT file with administrator privileges. The script will run automatically.
Note: After the bios is updated, it cannot be downgraded. The update process should not be interrupted or powered off. Otherwise, it will cause no startup, thank you"
Those steps cover the BIOS update installation. (Before installing the BIOS, I'd recommend doing a fresh reboot, exiting any background/auto-start apps, and disable any active virus protection...since those have potential to interfere w/ successful installation.)
As for the steps to follow for the drivers update, I think those were fairly well spelled out in my post that you had quoted. (Let me know if you have specific questions about anything I had said.) I should note, however, given the "rolling" nature of Windows Update and the lapsed between my post and today... there may be different updates available
than what I had posted. You may have to do some educated guessing if that's the case. [Err on the conservative side -- only install driver updates, if you notice instability or something not working correctly... and/or you have "unknown" devices listed in device manager.]
I haven't really been engaging this thread further out of frustration with the way MF conducts itself. I had also found similar connections b/w besstar and mf when doing my own investigation some months back, and I drew similar conclusions as @Carbon fib'er
. I'm both a tech enthusiast & IS/IT professional and have obviously been patient and willing to give some latitude waiting for proper firmware update/support... but this arguably simple
request was (and is still) so poorly handled by mf that I'm 100% never buying another of their products again.
I'm literally only casually monitoring this thread in case I can assist fellow
