Updating bios windows xp
If you have a machine that's over seven years old, it may be a better idea to save the money on a Windows 10 licence (and an SSD) and put the cash towards a new laptop or PC.
Whether you upgrade from XP or buy a new PC that's already running Windows 10, there are plenty of reasons why you should - not least that XP is no longer supported and could be vulnerable to hackers and viruses. As we said at the start, it's not possible to do an 'in-place' upgrade as you can with Windows 7 and 8.
While the terminology and screens may vary depending on your CD burning program choice and version, the principles remain the same and can be easily adapted no matter what burning software is being used. - Reminder - For many months now I've been posting a reminder about ' Patch Tuesday' or ' Second Tuesday' as it has come to be known when Microsoft releases the latest round of updates for Windows XP and other products.
As always, I strongly suggest you read about any update prior to installation, especially updates carrying a less than ' Critical' rating, and have a current system and data backup available in case it's necessary to restore the system to a pre-patch condition.
There are a number of different burning or CD creation programs that can be used to accomplish this task.
I've included instructions here for Easy CD and DVD Creator 6 by Roxio and another set of instructions for Nero Burning ROM 6-SE.
As we often say, you'd be surprised at how much your computer appears to speed up when you install Windows fresh.Windows 10 is the latest version from Microsoft, and there are new features in the free Creators Update.If you do decide to update to Windows 10, you'll have to do a clean installation as there's no way to upgrade and keep your files, settings and programs.Windows XP is still loved by many people, and still runs on millions of PCs and laptops.But it isn't supported by Microsoft any more and therefore is at risk from viruses and malware that can take advantage of any security holes that remain.
