My current BIOS version is v01.02. The latest BIOS version is v01.14. What's the "relative spxxxxx number"?

Hello

 

I mean that this is the BIOS 1.14 package: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/hp-compaq-8000-elite-convertible-minitowe...

 

when you download the file , you get sp73578   . https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73501-74000/sp73578.exe

 

when you run sp73578.exe , it should extract to a folder C:\SWsetup\sp73578

 

in that folder you get this file :   C:/swsetup/SP73578/Bios%20Flash.htm

 

if you go in folder C:/swsetup/SP73578/HPQFlash

 

it should be enought to execute , HPQFlash.exe then follow the instruction

 

as it's an old model, I don't remeber if you have to do something more.

 

bye
