    Intel Compute Stick Windows 10 1511, 10586


      I was just wondering if its already safe to upgrade to 1511, 10586 with my Compute Stick I just received today with Windows 10. I got it replaced with a new one. Because last time I upgraded my compute stick with windows 8.1 to windows 10 1511 10586 it was a nightmare.

          Hi xian08834,


          The new Windows® 10 update requires a BIOS update (latest version if possible)


          It is necessary a USB hub, USB 2.0 drive and remove SD card if you have one. Please download the file FC0031.BIO and paste it to the root of the USB drive.

          Download BIOS Update [FCBYT10H.86A]


          Turn the stick off, plug the USB drive with .BIO file and keyboard (wire) to hub; plug monitor and hub to stick.


          Press and hold the power button down for 3 seconds. Release it before the 4-second shutdown override. Select F4 option.

          More details in the link below.
