I have reinstalled the OS a thin client and I have the basic installation. I have used SP56020. All went well. I have restarted the sytem and I am writing this off it. Lots of things seem to be missing.
I can't get the system to recognise that there is an external hard drive installed.
I am very limitied in the Control Panel with alot of the normal contrl items missing.
Can someone point me in the right direction as i need to able to use this computer in our pizza shop.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome.
The HP Write Filter Configuration utility is a GUI that allows you to view information about and perform
common functions of EWF and FBWF.
Enable—Enables the write filter on the next thin client restart.
● Disable—Disables the write filter on the next thin client restart.
● Commit (EWF only)—Cached write data in the volume overlay will be committed (made permanent) to
the underlying volume on the next thin client restart.
● Clear Command—Clears the current boot command.
To open the HP Write Filter Configuration utility:
In the Control Panel, click HP Write Filter Configuration.
TIP: You can alternatively double-click the write filter status icon in the notification area.
The tasks you can perform in this utility include the following:
View information about the write filter currently in use
Enable either EWF or FBWF, or disable both
Commit cached write data from the volume overlay (EWF) or individual files (FBWF)
Clear the current boot command
TIP: This utility only provides this option for EWF, but the current boot command for FBWF can be
cleared using the status icon.
Set the amount of memory to allocate for the cache (FBWF only)
Set the percentage of cache use at which warning and critical messages are displayed and the delay for
an automatic thin client restart when the critical state is reached (FBWF only)
Edit the exclusion list, which specifies files and folders that will be ignored (FBWF only

Understand you are writing regarding items missing from control Panel.
This means thin client is looged into user mode.
To Login to admin mode - logoff from user mode and press and hold the shift key during reboot process.
This would give you options to login as Admin or User.
Default password for Administrator is the same "Adminstrator" (Case Sensitive).
Login to Admin mode and check for control panel items.
Click the white Kudos if this addressed your concern.
Thanks for Writing.
