Ran HP support assistant tonight and updated some stuff. Bios update went great, except i had a brain fart and apparently set the bios update location to my downloads folder instead of leaving it alone like i should have. Laptop is working great, but the bios has bogarted my downloads folder. Is there any way to change the location of these files without bricking my Pavilion? or maybe update again or revert. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Im not really sure exactly what i did for it to install there. I was checking out the HP update utility, which showed a bios update and a graphics update. i clicked for the bios update which took me to download a separate bios updater program, which i let go to downloads. I ran the program from that folder. I got a box to choose a location for sp69897 https://support.hp.com/soar-attachment/40/col48552-ob-143444-1-ob-143444-1_sp69897_releasedoc.html
"HOW TO USE:
1. Download the file by clicking the Download or Obtain Software button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved).
2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions."
The files it extracted to my downloads folder are:
CrisisFolder in downloads contains
Downloads folder files are:
hpsupportassistant.exe (i think this was the file i directed here)
wasn't sure if i could rerun the updater, or if there was a way to properly move them to a more appropriate place, or what to do. Can i just make a folder in c: or someplace and drop them there?
