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.

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.
HP Envy 8 5010 Tablet
(2) HP DV7t i7 3160QM 2.3Ghz 8GB
Printer -- HP OfficeJet Pro 8620 Legal

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?
