RE: Precision T7610 Update BIOS failed

How are you running the update, from inside Windows or from a USB stick, outside of Windows? (Read the installation instructions on the page for BIOS A12 if you want to run it from a USB stick.)

Are you logged in on an account with administrator privileges?

If you're running it from inside Windows, you may need to disable your anti-viral and anti-malware apps first.

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode to run the update?

If you're using Bitlocker, pay attention to this note:

Note 1: Please make sure you suspend BitLocker encryption before updating BIOS on a BitLocker enabled system.

Keep in mind that there's always a small risk flashing BIOS will brick the motherboard. So it's only recommended to update BIOS if the update(s) fix a problem you actually have. And note that updates are cumulative so A12 should have all the enhancements that were in A08-A11, so you need to go directly to A12
