BIOS update for Dell Latitude E6410 with Windows 10

I have a Dell Latitude E6410 I`ve updated to Windows 10. It has BIOS A04. I want to update the BIOS. 

When I went to Dell's website, it only lists options for previous versions of Windows-compatible BIOS. When I let it auto-detect, it will not install the BIOS updates. It says I need to manually install them. When I try with E6410A10.exe, a DOS window flashes up and goes away. Then when I try to install Latitude_E6410_E6410ATG_A17.exe, it says I need A09 first. 

Can anyone point me in the right direction? TIA

Hi,

Try going to this link:
http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e6410.html

You will find a list of all previous versions of the BIOS under the BIOS section and can update in stages starting from A09.

Hope this helps

I ran the A09 BIOS update executable after turning off Windows Defender real-time protection and quitting Malwarebytes. It gave me the initial installation window, and I clicked OK. The progress bar flashed up for just a second and then went away. 

I tried A05 with the same results. I`m not sure why I can`t update.

Look at the section "How to update your System BIOS using a USB Flash Drive" and follow the steps.
