@endrik38, welcome to the forum.

 

I understand that you want to install a SSD in your new computer.  Is the original hard drive still the same as it came from the factory?  If so, I believe I can help you solve your problem.

you are so quick to blame. why?

first learn (discover , prove )then lay blame if at all.  gee. golly wiz.

first off look in the mirror,  ?

you didnt ask how to do upgrades first.! and is tricky on new UEFI systems. (secure) {ask first}

its not easy nor simple or risk free, so you took that risk and did not ask HP for help first, here.

 

error one is flashing BIOS , leave BIOS alone, for a FACT, unless HP tells you its needed, based on real problems, unstated.

you even risk bricking the PC playing with BIOS. !!!

this PC has 14 bios versions, and must match yoUR SSID, if not you will fail.... leave it alone ,PLEASE!

and in 4 classes that must never ever be mixed up.

 

So HP 510p136

HP Pavilion Desktop

facts

it came with windows. 10 64bit.  tell me how in the world can you up date that, (w10 auto updates, you cant , as it only does, PUSHED from MS)

 

if the PC is ok, runs perfectly , 2 days ago.?

then the next step is to clone the HDD to SSD, using a free tool , ask!

the OS must be clean, no infections ,etc, or the cloned drive will be same. (your risk)

 

if the old HDD is bad or infected then win 10-64 bit needs to be loaded from scratch (ms allows free downloads but may fail to activate in the 30 day time rule)s,  ask Hp for  the HP media kit for you PC, they have it. get it.

 

but you just turn off  BIOS secure boot , bit in bios first. before installs. of any OS.

 

that is about it.  the full story is covered in HP documents, if you wish to read that, ask.

 

IMO

 

 

 btw 2:

PS. the bios new is not down gradeable, due to the new UEFI rules, that HP does not make but follows to the letter.

 

 when you saw the HP page, the BIOS page, click details first.

see this.

NOTE: Due to security changes, after this BIOS update is installed, previous versions cannot be reinstalled.

 

my guess is you go picked the wrong BIOS of 15 and did not read this line above.

HP has a fix but takes direct intervention to cure, (a custom to you, SSID, coded, BIOS BINARY)

I am not HP, and I am fully retired since 2009 from this industry. older than dirt,

Thank you for the additional information, @endrik38.

 

This is what you need to do.  Put the original hard drive back into the computer.  If it hasn't been changed the system should boot without any problems.  Once this is done, please let me know what happened.
