Received an update notice for BIOS & AMD and was dumb enough to think it'd actually work.
1. Hard Drive spun up and started running, then ran for over two hours
2. During this time msg popped up: Flashing Boot Block
3. Shut system down, did Hard Restart, which didn't work.
When system boots up, just a black screen with hard drive spinning like its going to take off. I just want to be able to get in, wipe the hard drive and load another operating system.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.
I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
Bios Recovery using a key press combination:
Turn off the computer, and then connect the power cord.
Press and hold the Windows key and the B key at the same time, and then press and hold the Power button for 2 to 3 seconds.
Release the Power button but continue pressing the Windows and B keys. You might hear a series of beeps.
If this recovery method fails, use another working computer to create a BIOS recovery flash drive to install the latest BIOS file.
