Make and model of your laptop? An SKU will help two fold. Which BIOS are you on at the moment and which BIOS file are you trying to update to?

1. Why do you need to update the BIOS?

2. A pirated OS is very easy to fix. Buy a valid license. Do a full wipe and reinstall.

'bug fix'?
Unless there is a specific issue, and a specific BIOS update addresses that specific issue, then leave it alone.

"boosting the laptop"?
If you're speaking of overclocking, you usually can't in a laptop.
And if this isn't about OC, a BIOS update infers no "boost"


Lastly...if you absolutely must do this BIOS update (and you probably don't need to), you do it exactly how the manufacturer says to do it.
Follow their directions exactly and in full, and it might work.
