    I'm preparing for a BIOS unlocked on my AW17R1 so if I can ask something here...
    I'm on stock A14 Bios right now and the HWinfo reads uCU (I belive that is the microcode) as 25.
    As I can see in the bios unlocked thread one would want for it to be v22.
    My question is - does the microcode change only through BIOS flash or is it something windows update will also do?
    I did not perform BIOS flash ever but I know it has somehow changed from v1C to v25 at some point which I am not aware of (I have a prtscrn from 2015).

    The OS has the ability to side-load a microcode but not sure if client win10 does that.
