Here is the latest BIOS update for your PC.


To use the Windows based flash method, it was written to be run using Windows XP, so I am going to give you a way to safely update the BIOS without being in Windows.


1.61    Jul 8, 2009


Download and run the file.


An information page will open.   You want to follow the instructions under this 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


So, here is how you safely update the BIOS.


Get a USB flash drive.   Format it with the FAT32 file system.


On the information page that opened when you ran the BIOS file, click on the View Contents of DOS Flash Folder link.


Copy all of the files in that folder to your USB flash drive.  Just the files, not the folder.


Restart the PC.


Immediately at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, tap the F10 key to get access to the BIOS.


Select the File tab>Flash System ROM command.


Select the USB flash drive.


The PC should now 'see' the BIOS update files on the flash drive.


Follow the on screen instructions to update the BIOS.
