    Hi!

    I have Dell Inspiron with bios A09 h ttp://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER03385758M/1/3442A09.EXE
    I`ve made service tag reset to unlock SLIC table, then I activated WIN7 with oem key/cert and upgraded it to WIN10.
    Finally I made WIN10 clean install and it activated automatically. Everything worked perfect.

    Now there is new bios update A10 - h ttp://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER03405710M/1/3442A10.EXE
    It is solving some issues with hardware, so I want to make this update.

    Can I safely perform this update? Is there possibility to lost activation/brick or something else?

    BR
