    Hey Mate,

    I have downloaded the latest firmware update for the Surface Pro 2 and deployed it to a test machine via SCCM. Which was successfully installed as I checked the driver versions in Device Manager.

    If I go to windows update, however, it is still displaying the following - "System Hardware Update - 5/19/2015 4.0MB" Previously I could see this as well as "System Firmware Update - 5/19/2015" but the firmware update has disappeared since I deployed the firmware update from SCCM.

    The question I want to ask is what is contained in the "System Hardware Update - 5/19/2015" I cannot find any mention of it anywhere?

    Thanks!!

    Thanks Brink, it's good to finally be a part of the forum.

    I have installed the firmware and checked the UEFI, HD Graphics, and Display Audio Driver and they are all updated to the versions you list above but I still have the below appearing on the machine.

    You wouldn't happen to know what is contained in the update in my screenshot? I would really like to deploy it through SCCM as we have quite a few of these machines . Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The "System Hardware Update" would be hardware drivers for the Surface. I don't have anything more specific than that though.

    No worries Brink .

    I think I will run Driverview and dump a list of the driver versions, install the updates then repeat and see what's changed.

    I'll post back here once I find out what it is.

    Thanks Mate,
