How to Copy Firmware to HDD? - HP DesignJet T1100ps

HP Recommended
HP DesignJet T1100ps

Hello!

I recently purchased an HP T1100ps from an auction where the hard drive was removed. I'm hoping to get some help flashing the firmware to a new, blank hard drive. I see posts about using the EWS. I would purchase one externally, however, I have already been scammed/mislead when trying to purchase from designjetpartsfast and am not even certain that the formatting board is fully functional. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 🙂

@chris1designjet is correct, you need to purchase a preformatted drive with the firmware on it.
