==============================================================

Welcome to the HP Community.

Reminder to those reading:

Do NOT respond to individuals who post phone numbers or email addresses.

These might be scammers trying to steal your information / money.

HP does not post phone numbers or email in Community messages.

==============================================================

 

This is correct - the Advanced section required for this control option is not available on every computer.

 

Why?  HP locks parts of the BIOS on consumer grade machines to protect the BIOS from accidental or deliberate changes that could damage its ability to function.  It is a decision meant to protect both customer and HP.

 

Business grade systems typically include the Advanced BIOS section and other access / control points.

 

Consumer Class Desktops and Notebooks – BIOS Setup

 

Commercial / Business Class Computers – BIOS Setup

HP PC Commercial BIOS (UEFI) Setup - Administration Guide

 

Comments - Not to be confused with statements from HP

 

In general, and there might be exceptions,

 

  • Business class computers offer the BIOS Advanced section. 
  • Examples of business class systems include and are not limited to:  Zbook / Mobile Workstations, ProBook, EliteBook, EliteDesk, and others.

 

For example

  • The backlit keyboard timeout option is included in the Advanced section as appropriate (assuming system has a backlit keyboard).

 

  • At this writing, consumer class systems may not include the Advanced BIOS section.
  • Examples of consumer grade systems include and are not limited to:  Spectre, Pavilion, Envy, Notebook.
