So heres the deal, to cut it all out, i've done what a few people seem to have done, and ultimately ended up deleting the hp tools partion and effectively bricking the laptop -facepalm-
I HAVE read the hp page detailing how to download and install the bios onto a flash drive (formatted to FAT32 and renamed HP_TOOLS). It ends up giving me a load of .sig files in one folder, and then another folder called bios, which is completely blank...
Am I missing something really obvious? For the record, I got rid of the pre installed windows 7 straight away and through on windows xp, (not thanks to hp themselves) i managed to get the drivers up and running, but when i check the compatable os' for all the bios related stuff, it only relates to windows 7, that can't be good?
Forgot to mention, it's the hp G56 130sa (:
I DID read like a 4 page long thread about this kinda thing, but they seemed to have files that i just couldn't get?

-BUMP- c'mon guys, i've followed all the steps HP post in the support section, but im getting no bios files, no .bin files, nothing in the 'BIOS' folder created by the UEFI thing
