Thank you for joining the Intel® Community.
In this case the right regarding your questions should be provided by Lenovo and HP, this since the firmware is provided by them so they will be the only one that can comment if delaying the restart can affect the processor the update. Try their community support for more information: English Community - Lenovo Community and Home - HP Support Forum.
Hope you can get more answers there.
