    I have an HP ProBook 4530s, which came with BIOS Vers. F.09. Last month HP put out a new version, Vers. F.60 RevA, I have been unable to find the change log prior to F.50.

    I as wondering if it would make sense to upgrade, or leave well enough alone. Do I gain any functionality (or lose any) by upgrading?

    I have Windows 7 installed, though I will likely update to W10. 99% of the time I use Linux (Ubuntu/Mint). I would like to Hackintosh it, but haven't had any luck.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Also note that once applied you cannot back out.

    That only covers this one specific update. I wanted to find out the change log from my current version (F.09) to the newest (F.60A). There have been several BIOS updates, but i can't find what those changes have been.

    How though do I determine what enhancements I might gain? I have been unable to install MacOS (I can in virtual box). I thought maybe the BIOS might be the issue...

    Do you actually have a MAC?
