10 Update wants to install an already installed BIOS update

Recommended Posts

I don't want this ... because I already have the BIOS update.  I actually installed the BIOS update manually from Dell a few months ago.  The hell?

First time I've really encountered an update which I disagreed with ... how do I remove this?

 

Also, about to head to Atlanta so I'll be away from this notebook for a little bit.

Can you update to something later then 1.8.1 or is that the latest?

1.8.1 is the latest per Dell

I had the same issue on my Latitude.  I updated the bios days before, and it downloaded and attempted to install it.

 

It just gave me an error, saying it was already installed, and then removed the update from the list.

Yea, disregard. 

 

I went ahead and did the "install now" ... it acted like it installed it ... said it was successful ... restarted fine so whatever.  At least it didn't break the computer (which was my only concern).

 

Just weird.

Dell BIOS updates are pretty safe from  my experience, never had an issue either from them or WU.

might have been a minor revision change or something and they just didn't alter the version number
