Bios error 501

HP Pavilion dv6-6c75sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have destroyed and recreated all partitions on my HDD. Then performed a clean install of Windows 10. I am now getting a Bios Error 501 message followed by a painfully long boot into Windows. I have checked options in the bios and can not find anyway to disable HP Quicklook. I have tried to install the UEFI environment back to the HDD via the HP support page but I am still getting the 501 message. Anybody help please?

Welcome to HP Community!

Click here to perform a harder reset on your device

If the issue persists, after the above steps, try the below:

  1. Turn off the notebook.

  2. Plug the notebook into a power source using the power adapter.

  3. With the notebook off, press and hold the Windows logo key  and the B key at the same time.

       NOTE:

    On some notebook models, it might be necessary to press and hold the Windows logo key  and the V key.

  4. While pressing those keys, press and hold the Power button on the computer for 2 to 3 seconds, and then release the Power button but continue to hold the Windows logo key  and the B or V key until the HP BIOS update screen displays or you hear a beeping sound (usually 8 beeps).

    The HP BIOS Update screen displays, and the BIOS update begins automatically. This might take several minutes, and you might hear additional beeping sounds.

    • If the HP BIOS Update screen does not display, repeat the previous steps. If the issue persists after repeating the steps, skip to the next step to Download a replacement BIOS file.

    • If the Power light turns off, the notebook has turned off because the Power button was held too long. Repeat the previous steps, making sure to hold the Power button for 2 to 3 seconds only.
