Hello, willrhame.

 

Typically this means the EFI-partition (HP_TOOLS) has been deleted. You can get past this message by disabling HP Quick look 2 in your BIOS.

 

Try these steps please:

 

1. Open up your BIOS (by pressing F10 while your machine is booting up)
2. Go to System Configuration / Device Configurations
3. Look for an option called "HP Quicklook" or "HP Quicklook 2"
4. Set it to "Disabled"
6. Save the changes (hit F10)
7. Restart your machine.

 

After you restart the machine you shouldn't see the message again. Please let me know the outcome. 

 

If you have any more questions let me know.

That option does not exist in the bios o system I am working with (Pavilion dv6-6c10us).

 

Do I need a Bios update? And if so where can I get one that boots off USB or something?

To update your BIOS, you just need to download and run the BIOS update from the following link:

Best of luck,

Thanks but the system is not booting into Windows!  I need a bootable bios update if there exists one!

Are you getting the same error message as the original poster or a different one?

 

Until then, I would try a hard reset on the notebook. Here is a document with the steps:

Just let me know the result of that reset. If it doesn't help, I will see where we can go from there.

Hard Reset does nothing to remove that 501 error!  But again; this is a new HD I am trying to install so it will not have the HP Tools on it which apparently is needed!  But I am having major difficulty installing windows

 

Thanks for any more advice you might have!
