Hi:

 

Here is the utility to do this.

The utility does not show your PC as supported but it will work on any HP business desktop PC at least up to the 8100 Elite which came out last year.

 

You will need a floppy drive--internal or USB.

 

A USB flash drive will not work.

Hi

 

I checked that, worked well but it can update only serial # not the model #.

Can you elaborate more , how I can update the model # for HP system

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

I guess if that is all you can do with that utility, then that is all you can do.

 

I don't believe I stated that the utility would change or add the model number, nor did you ask that question originally.

 

You'll have to contact HP technical support and have an HP tech tattoo the bios with any other info you need.
