Is there a way to update my BIOS of HP Pavilion g6 from Ubuntu 15.10? Hp has released the BIOS update only for Windows 7. I don't have windows installed in my laptop right now. So is there any way to update the BIOS through Ubuntu. I want to update my BIOS since my laptop is having WiFi issues. WiFi is not connecting sometimes and a reboot is required. I had the same problem when i was using Windows 8. So I think it could be the BIOS problem not starting the WiFi adapter properly. Please help.

  • For HP there is only a workaround for website. I can't find anything but all .exe files that too only available under Windows 7. No proper answer. There is no BIOS upgrade option in BIOS menu for me. – Gokul Raj Dec 26 '15 at 3:32
