New to MSI and forum
« on: 10-April-17, 22:05:03 »

Hello fellow forum members,
I have recently purchased a MSI WT72 6QL-400US laptop. I am extremely pleased so far from what I have seen. I have two questions;
1. I am getting message telling me I should upgrade thunderbolt, should I upgrade the BIOS first?
2. I am trying to use the BIOS update tool but am instructed to remove the battery after a BIOS update. won't that void my warranty since I have to remove half of all the other components to get to it. I have also entered the specs below: I appreciate any advice or help offered.

Hi, since your Notebook battery is built-in within the mechanical, I don't think you need to remove the battery.
As I know, MSI BIOS already have auto reset feature after you flash it at the first time.  And from your information, you need to update BIOS to ver. 118.

Thank you for responding.  I was able to get the .118 BIOS installed. The people at Tech Support were great!
