    Hello all,
    I am running Ubuntu on my 2019 Blade Stealth and I see that there was a BIOS update for this model released in June. However, the BIOS update was only released as a Windows executable (.exe) and I have completely deleted the Windows partition.
    Would it be possible to release the BIOS update in a way so that it can be copied to a USB disk? Or even better yet, natively run from Linux?

    I have not personally updated the BIOS on a Razer laptop, but when running only Linux, I have to use the Windows executable (.exe) from FreeDOS booted from a USB Drive. Flash FreeDOS to a USB Drive, move the BIOS executable to the drive, boot FreeDOS and run the file.
