Updating Surface Pro 3 firmware (Cross Post)

Hi this is Scott McArthur and I just wanted to call attention to a blog that I worked on with some of our PFE engineers that just posted related to Surface.

This blog shows you how you can update firmware from a Bootable WindowsPE USB flash drive.  This is useful for some scenarios where you need updated firmware BEFORE you do a deployment to the device.  Hope it helps with your Surface deployments
