    Hi,

    I'm just now coming across this page. Nice to see a driver-update utility.

    I'm assuming this will work on my Prostar Clevo?

    I have an old stock BIOS that has never been updated (1.0.3 I believe is the version #). I want to get it updated for the Meltdown/Spectre stuff, but I have no idea where to download it from. Neither Prostar nor Clevo have it on their download pages and I'm a little bit wary of using the ones I've seen on some unofficial websites.

    Will this work with my Laptop? Or is this limited to Obsidian Clevos?

    Just wondering. Thanks.

    This is limited to Obsidian branded ones only. You need to contact Prostar support and get the BIOS and EC firmware from them.

    I had to do the same with my reseller. For some reason they too don't list the latest BIOS version on their website.

    You can download and install latest Intel Microcode for Skylake from Microsoft update. Be sure you have updated your Windows Version (Fall update) with needed patch for Meltdown as well.

    Ok, thanks.

    Do you know if that covers the Skylake Prime number bug too?

    I recall something a while back about something with a rare Prime processing procedure causing crashes, but not sure if that was fixed via a windows update or not.

    Just curious. Might not even be anything.

    You're welcome!!
    If you haven't encountered any problems, you shouldn't worry about this. Skylake chips was shipped out in millions. And how often do you see people talk about it and say they have problems? Forget this. I would be happy if you posted a few benchmarks with and without the new Intel microcode. Thanks

    OK, just to make sure...

    I should install the x86 one at this link, correct? (Bottom one that is 978KB?)

    http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4090007

    The top link says it's for AMD64, so I'm assuming I need the x86 link for my i7 6700K?

    I'm sure you run x64-based windows system:D

    I know, but I see AMD64 there, which is confusing me.
