Hello,

This is a pretty stupid question, so brace yourself.

My machine has a program called Toshiba Service Station which I just discovered and updated this morning. I have included a screenshot below. It's telling me that I need to install two BIOS updates 1.7 and 1.8.
Can I skip 1.7 or should I do what it's telling me and install them both?

You should be able to go straight to the newest release. If it wants the earlier update first though, it will let you know.

BTW, if you are not familiar with bios updates be sure to follow all instructions to the letter and do not stop the update (or shut off the machine) before the update is complete - though it's a pretty quick process.

To play it safe, I would check on the Toshiba website concerning proper updating of the BIOS. Have seen some OEM`s state that all BIOS patches\updates must be installed and in the order of their release.

Other then that, as Allan stated. Follow the directions to the letter and do not interrupt the process.
