Re: BIOS Needed for HPE-495uk (Pavillion Elite)

HP Recommended

Hello Emma, Big_Dave,

 

I know I'm replying to an old thread, but have either of you found the bios anywhere?

 

Thanks.

Thanks for the info, Dean.

 

W.r.t. bios update, from where I was standing, I saw a bios boot options menu freeze, and bring the computer to a full stop. This caused me to think that the bios had been damaged.

 

I did not know that the USB stick I choose to boot to (which had only just been created as a bootable one by Unetbootin), would cause the bios boot options menu to freeze.

 

Kind Regards,

 

TT0

@TT0,

I moved your inquiry to create a new issue.  Adding to (called hi-jacking) a stale, 3 year old inquiry does not benefit the forum, as only Emma could grant flags.

This allows you to start the issue, and get proper help.  It also allows you, as the now OP (Original Poster) to grant "Solution" and "Kudo" flags. These flags are used to evaluate the effectiveness of the forum.

 

 So that we are on the same page, let me tell you this:

1) The HPE-495uk model is circa 2010.

2) The original OS was WIN 7, and that means it's a Legacy BIOS until.

3) Legacy BIOS units are  incapable  of attaining UEFI VBIOS upgrades.

4) That prohibits any Graphic Card (GPU) that is only UEFI.  (There are a few dual BIOS cards).

 

As stated previously by @Big_Dave, why do you want a BIOS upgrade?  There needs to be a specific reason for that action. Hopefully I answered your inquiry with the 1-4 comments.
