HP Pro 3500 Microtower PC
Ubuntu LTS

Hi everyone,

 

I have an HP Pro 3500 and, a few years ago, I changed the OS for an Ubuntu. Now I would like to upgrade the BIOS.

 

I went to the HP download page for my pc and downloaded the BIOS version 8.14-Rev.A (sp60662). But the downloaded files only contains one executable : safuwin.exe (the FLASH.bat file just execute safuwin.exe with parameters) but it only works on Windows.

 

Still, I created a bootable USB key (using Rufus) that start FreeDos and put all the files on the root of the key. But with no luck.

 

Is there a way to flash the BIOS through a linux or dos version of this file ? Where could I find it ?

 

I thank you in advance for your help.
