    I haven't updated my BIOS since I got this laptop. I should probably not tempt fate in Device Manager.

    Do you have the option in the GT73?

    It'll be slowly coming to all laptops regardless of manufacturer. Redstone 5 and later version demands it.

    So you don't have an answer to whether or not the GT73 has the option in the Device Manager.

    I just checked. It says the best drivers are already installed.

    I don't know. Maybe you can check with @Falkentyne
    If MSI updates new drivers or firmware that follows UWD framework then your model will be getting it as well through WU. I disabled WU long time ago. I'm simply afraid to update drivers/firmware through WU.

    What is the version listed in your NB compared to whats available here, and at MSI for your notebook?

    I'm still on the original BIOS I think? Help Desk lists the version as E17A1IMS.107, while the newest BIOS available online is E17A1IMS.10E.

    I don't even know if I could directly upgrade to that BIOS without issues.

    I did mine through the Device Manager, it went so smoothly, but the PC started an stopped 6x, or so it seemed.
    Sit back and relax, let it do its thing. Make sure you have a full charge and are plugged in to AC power.
    Yesterday I got the W10 update to 17763.1, so I suppose it may have been necessary for me, otherwise I may be chasing bugs unnecessarily.
    I do prefer the Device Manager method, much easier.
    FYI ... You can flash backward as well, if needed to go back to an earlier version of windows.

    I tryd to install the newest MSI-Bios

    The devices comes with E17A3IMS.110 2018/09/04
    On the MSI Support page is E17A3IMS.10A 2018-04-23

    Here I saw, that 10D is available.

    After I used the firmware update over device manager I have two different versions?

    After installing under windows, I rebooted the system. But there was no updating process then, windows booted just normal.

    Now I have the situation, that the Bios itself shows 110. MSI-Helpdesk shows 110. BUT Device Manager shows now 10D ?!?

    I have Bitlocker activated. Maybe this prevent the Bios update process? So 10D is not available over MSI Page.
    Reinstalling over Device Manager wont work, due Device Manager sayd, the newest version is installed...

    Dont know what to do now, to receive the newest Bios Update.
