Can I update firmware on same system drive?

I am just installed Windows 11 on my SN850.

Can I (hot) update the firmware on the same Windows?
or I need to make some boot pendrive or something?


Performing a firmware update can be risky by itself even in the best of situations. For example, a power outage during a firmware update carries a very good possibility of ruining the drive. External, Serial ATA, and ATA drives are not designed for field firmware updates by end users.

Very often, system or device driver issues cause symptoms that are incorrectly called “firmware problems.”

You can update on your boot drive from within Windows 11. It is not a requirement to make a boot pendrive. The Dashboard utility will perform the firmware update if one is available for your device.
