HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Support Environment: UEFI Support Environment provides UEFI based hardware diagnostics used to validate if a system is functioning correctly. Additional support is provided for updating and managing the system BIOS and other device firmware on the system.

 

You can boot the system by tapping F9 and go to UEFI environment to perform hardware diagnostics.

I am an HP employee.

I keep getting an icon on the lower right of my toolbar. It has a question mark with an !. I click on it and it says  recommended action, "HP System Diagnostics UEFI" I select it and hit apply and it does it's thing, but when it is done it still shows that this action needs to be done.

Can't seem to figure it out.
