    Hi

    On the Toshiba EU driver page you can find only the win-based BIOS update version.
    This means that BIOS can be updated from running system only and you need to run Windows OS in order to start the BIOS update procedure. Linux isn't supported in this case...

    Here you can find the How to doc about the BIOS update

    From my knowledge the BIOS update using USB stick is possible but you need such traditional BIOS version… but this seems to be available for authorized service providers only

    I extracted the executable file and I can see:

    * BIO0096T.COM: data

    096t is related to the name of the update P0096v320.exe
