BIOS update from 3.04 to 3.6 bricked my Z400

Z400
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Downloaded the HP software assistant and it suggested an urgent update to BIOS 3.6. I get splash screen but when I press F10 for setup, it hangs after putting "SETUP" down in the lower right hand corner. F9 shows "BOOT" in lower right hand corner.

Discovered the "crisis recovery" jumper and tried 3.57 off a thumb drive. Same thing...  My recollection is that it had 3.04 on it, but can't be sure. Can't find any earlier BIOS than 3.57 to try.
