I’m trying to update the BIOS from 3.07 to 3.10. I have an 11th gen Intel laptop, and I’m running Arch with full disk encryption. My EFI partition is /boot and it is encrypted too (I’m not sure if this matters). I unzipped the bios update onto a thumb drive and booted from it as instructed. I can boot into the shell on the thumb drive but the actual update fails: it just says “Bios Update Failed” and nothing more.
- Is it a know problem that this isn’t going to work with an encrypted boot partition? If so, is there any kind of workaround that doesn’t involve basically re-installing my whole machine from scratch?
- How can I get more debugging information about what failed so I can attempt to fix this?
