Compaq Elite 8200

Hi, I wonder if someone can help. After updating bios all the system IDs were reset. I tried to type them back but one UUID is greyed out and I am not able to do anything about it. It doesn't let me save all the other details. Is there anything which I could do to fix this issue? Without this every time computer boots user has to press F1. 

 

Kind regards

Tomasz

your bios update was corrupted or the wrong bios was installed

 

rather than wasting several hours recovering it (it's not that easy or quick to do)

 

simply replace the motherboard using the updated HP 8300 Elite SFF motherboard

 

note that the SFF/MT/USFF models are different and the elite 8300 AIO is also different so  post your model number

here if you need further help

 

SFF:  8300/8200

or a 8200  using a used board off ebay
