  • BIOS changes just before a BIOS update are now supported using BIOS-Update-BIOS-Settings.txt (issue #78). Please see BIOS settings for BIOS update for details

  • Reworked the TPM update code to use TPMConfig64 v2 and its automatic firmware selection feature. This should make TPM updates easier and more robust (issue #61).
  • IMPORTANT: This is a breaking change as TPM-Update.txt needs to have new settings and also requires that VTx is disabled during the TPM update. For details, please see TPM update configuration changes.
  • The return codes of TPMConfig64.exe are now translated to their actual meaning (issue #61)
  • Updated MPSXM.psm1 to v3.28.4
  • The settings in BIOS-Settings.txt are now applied in the same order as they are defined in the file (issue #67)
  • IMPORTANT: Before this change, the order of BIOS settings was not determined, so it could happen that BIOS setting dependency were in the correct order by accident. If you now receive an Access denied error when BIOS settings are changed, check if the setting has a dependency and move that dependency higher up in BIOS-Settings.txt.
  • Updated HP BIOS Configuration Utility (BCU) to v4.0.25.1 (issue #73)
  • Added IgnoreMEDetectionError setting for ME update to ignore if Intel AMT/ME is turned off (issue #36).
