Hi:

 

You have two methods to update the BIOS...

 

There is an update that was written to be run in Windows Vista.  I don't know what will happen if you run it on Windows 7.

 

F.07

 

sp38863.exe (hp.com)

 

There is also a FreeDOS Bootable version...

 

sp38864.exe (hp.com)

 

This package enables the creation of a bootable diskette, CD, or USB key that can be used to locally restore or upgrade the System BIOS in the supported notebook models with a 68MVU Family ROM. NOTE: Insert ONLY the USB drive that will be used to format and create bootable BIOS upgrade USB media. Remove all unused USB drives and flash drives from the notebook. NOTE: To determine the ROM family and ROM date, press F10 on the target notebook during startup to run the Setup Utility, and then view File/System Information.
