HP 6005 SFF Requesting to get the lasest BIOS Update.

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an older HP that needs to have the BIOS updated. I have tried the support page, but I did not receive any information. My current BIOS for this system is 1.11. I have found a few whitepappers that make a reference to 1.17 (for wireless PCIE cards). I am having trouble locating the update. Can someone please point me in the correct direction to download the update?

You can find that BIOS update under the W7 driver section for your PC's model series...


1.17     May 15, 2012


Since you are running W10 on your PC, I would not recommend you use the windows based flash method to update the BIOS.


When you run the above file, and information page will open.  Follow the instructions to update the BIOS listed under the below section...


                                                                                          F10 Setup BIOS Flashing
The HP Business Desktop system supported by this softpaq provides a BIOS upgrade option through F10 setup using the "Flash System ROM" feature. Reboot the PC and press F10 to enter setup. In the File menu, select the "Flash System ROM" item. This flash utility will present the user with the option to select the media containing the BIOS image file (XXX_MMmm.bin). The binary image file is contained in the DOS Flash directory and is named XXX_MMmm.bin where "XXX" is the abbreviated BIOS family, "MM" is the major version number, and "mm" is the minor version number. F10 ROM based flash can accept the binary file from the root directory of any removable media such as USB, legacy floppy diskette, and CD. The BIOS CD Media file, included in this softpaq, should be used to create a BIOS image CD. When flashing with F10 ROM based flash, the CD media must be El-Torito compatible. The user is prompted when the process is completed. The new BIOS code will not take effect until the PC is rebooted.
                                                                                       View Contents of DOS Flash Folder


Here is how you do it...get a USB flash drive.  Format it with the FAT32 file system.


Copy the file contents of the DOS flash folder referenced in the BIOS update information page to your flash drive.  Just the file contents, not the folder.


Restart the PC.  Tap the F10 key at the beginning of the HP welcome screen to get access to the BIOS.


Select the File Tab>Flash System ROM command.   Select the USB flash drive.


The PC should 'see' the file contents on the flash drive.


Follow the on screen instructions to update the BIOS.


Make sure that you read the BIOS release notes before updating the BIOS.


You cannot go back to an earlier BIOS revision once you update to that BIOS version.
