[BIOS] Custom Logo on HP Elitebook 8460p

HP Recommended
HP Elitebook 8460P
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone. 👋


I have a HP Elitebook 8460P currently running on a dual-boot (Fedora 32 and Windows 10, 64 bits) for my school.


Unfortunately, I had to make a full disk erase as my school has wanted to.

So I have lost the "HP Tools" partition and I can't put a custom logo on my BIOS startup. ☹️


Could you tell me how to:

- Create the "HP Tools" Partition

- Setup my custom logo for the BIOS

please? 😉


I would be very glad to know how to do that and have my custom icon on the startup of my computer.

By the way, I am currently running in 100% UEFI. No CSM.


Warm Regards 😀

There is no way to recreate the HP_TOOLS partition and keep your current partitions intact -- especially if you still have them in dual boot mode with Windows and Linux partitions.


HP Recovery Media will create HP_TOOLS and populate it, but it erases the ENTIRE drive in the process -- and that will remove any dual-boot you have in  place.


If your PC is a 2016 model or newer, you should see if you can make a bootable USB recovery drive using the HP cloud recovery tool on a working PC.

The recovery drive can then be used to install Win10 and the HP drivers and utilities that originally came with your PC.
