Cannot update 705 G4 BIOS

EliteDesk 705 G4 65W Desktop Mini
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear Support,

 

I am in the process of creating a USB stick to assist with building machines in my office. However, when I try to put the BIOS update on the stick (including the firmware.bin), the machine will recognise it but fail after selecting "update to 02.07.03" in the BIOS. The error message is something along the lines of "Invalid BIOS Image" or "Invalid Image File".

I have tried putting the BIOS .bin files in EFI/HP/..... and HP/........ but neither helps. I have tried redownloading the BIOS update from HP several times, also no improvement.

Any ideas?

 

Kind regards,

Alex Booth

@Alex_In_IT,

I would suggest you try the following with only 1 unit:

This package is used to update the System BIOS on HP Business Desktop models with Q26 and Q27 Family BIOS.

1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved).

2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

This system is feedback driven thru Solution and Kudo flags. It's the only means of knowing if you have been served. Please click Accept as Solution, if your problem is solved. To say THANK YOU, press the "thumbs up symbol" to render a KUDO. You can render both Solution and KUDO..

Thanks for the response.

I would normally do this if it was just 1 machine, but we are potentially looking at configuring and imaging many 10s or 100s of these machines. I was hoping to put it onto the USB that would be used to deploy the image to streamline the process.

Can this model only update the BIOS through the windows executable?

 

Kind regards,

Alex
