    I tried to Update the BIOS at my M700-110 PPM70E-02302DEN from 1.60 up to 1.80 (P005Bv180.exe).

    However it fails with the error " BIOS Update is not supported OS. Unsupported OS or service pack installed."

    Within the "more information" I could read "OS independent".
    Is the Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1 not supported?

    What's the matter?
    Which BIOS is the right one for my system?

    Please help me!
    THanks a lot.

    Hi

    It seems that Vista OS was preinstalled on this notebook.
    This means that you have installed the Win 7 system at your own hand.

    The point is that BIOS update requires some essential Toshiba tools.
    For example the Value Added Package is important software and should be preinstalled on the notebook.

    Is VAP installed?
    If not install the VAP before trying to update the BIOS.
