Solved!

Z440 - M60 BIOS - Time and Date Settings

HP Recommended

Can we configure the Time and Date in the BIOS on a Z440 with ver M60?
If so, where is the option?  Sorry if this is a dumb question.

I'm assuming I cannot find it because it's preconfigured, but I don't even know how to check current configuration.

EskoBomb, the Z840/Z640/Z440 BIOS has many changes from previous HP Workstations.  The BIOS F10 user interface is different.  I deleted my previous reply, since it applied to previous HP Workstations.  (Sorry, I misread your original post). 

 

The Z840/Z640/Z440 BIOS does NOT have settings to change the Time and Date.  This generation of workstations does not have this option.  The time and date can be set after bootinging, then changing them in the operating system.

 

These BIOS settings are not needed anymore.

** Edit **

 

My post applied to previous HP Workstations, not the Z840/Z640/Z440, so I deleted the info.

Thanks for replying Dan!
So I have seen this setting in EliteBook and Folio Model Laptops with a similar GUI.

I just can't seem to locate it Under Main (File in some models) or under the advanced tab.

 

This is my first time I've seen the Z440 workstation but didn't expect it to be too much different.

Below are the Options on the Main and Advanced tabs. 

Main Options:
System Information

System Diagnostics

Update System BIOS

System IDs

Replicated Setup

Language Options

Save Custom Defaults

Apply Custom Defaults and Exit

Apply Factory Defaults and Exit

Ignore Changes and Exit

Save Changes and Exit

 

Advanced Options:
Boot Options

Device Configurations

Secure Boot Configuration

Option ROM Launch Policy

USB Device Control

Power Options

Performance Options

Slot Settings

Legacy Configurations
Internet Configuration

Update BIOS via Network

Manageability Application Configuration

BIOS Power-On

 

Additional Tabs include Security and UEFI Drivers.

Sounds good.  Thanks again. +1 Kudos in spirit since the purple button doesn't seem to work today in my browser.

These BIOS settings are definitely still needed.

Imaging an HP Z440 with SCCM, and it will not image because the clock is off on the Z440.
There is no operating system installed so there's no way to update the time there.

So it looks like we'll have to manually install an operating system just so we can update the time! What poor foresight by HP, to remove the ability to correct the time from the BIOS.
