    My Hard Disk in Tecra S11 died, and I have purchased a new SSD.
    Everything work OK, but I can not update BIOS any more. Update utility show an error:

    Error: Preparing to update was failed.
    You have not given permission to execute the update.

    What to do? Please help.

    Do you have Admin rights?
    Sounds like the issue could be related to missing privileges which are needed to run a update.

    You could enable the admin account following these steps:
    Choose command prompt (the black box cmd)
    In the box type net user administrator /active:yes
    Then log out. Usually an additional user account should be visible ĎAdministratorí.

    Now log in using this account and try to execute the BIOS update.

    Note: in many cases the VAP (value added package) is needed to run the update BIOS.
    Be sure also, that package has been unzipped correctly before running the exe file.

    I had once the same Problem. Check if you have enabled the trusted platform module and turn it off in Windows and Bios.
