All the rows in the service manual are for different configurations of the same model. It is just to show how you can install 4GB, 6GB, 8GB, 12GB or 16GB in the same computer. Here is where I got the service manual from:
So either the website is wrong or HP India is wrong. I guess it depends if the model has one or two RAM slots.

There is not much more I can say. I guess 8GB of RAM should be enough and it will not make much difference having 16 GB of RAM.
I believ models with the same name are always the same.
A better upgrade which would increase everyday performance of laptop a lot would be to replace the hard drive with an SSD.

Are you sure HP India is not looking at 14-bs542tu
which has DDR3 RAM and max 8GB.
What type of RAM does HP India say that there is in the system? DDR4 or DDR3L?
10-13-2017 10:53 AM
they are saying 15- bs ony, and about DDR4 , but they say they could not find the documentation for it .
And by monday they can get it from singapore but today is last day, 1.5 hrs left for the discount offer.
Also i want to know that this model as intel 620 grphcs , but from the manuall its coming intel 520 for 6th gen dis and UMA.

It has Intel HD 520 graphics and the spec page is wrong.

I found the mannual on indian website also, do'nt know why HP sales team could not.
David it seems u have very good knowledge of the arera. Need your advise.
6100u proceesor is having good speed but now in india 6006u is only found , do'nt know why 6100u is not availbale.
Over Amazon India , I can find models which are of core i3 7th generation but less prices than HP site. However HP says that they may not be genuine products, like Dell also says.
Should I go for 6th generation 6006u process , or it seems its going to be oudated..
Also will i be able to load win 7 with drivers on this model. Hp does not help on this.

I would go with an Intel 7th generation as the graphics will be much better and make sure there is DDR4. I live in Italy and buy a lot from Amazon without problems. I believe you can have some guarantees (maybe for small extra fee) from Amazon India and also buy from sellers which have very good reputation.
You will be able to find the drivers for your system especially if you only have integrated graphics. It might mean searching for specific drivers, however I am sure we can help you here in this forum (as long as you buy HP).
It might be difficult to install Windows 7 if you have no DVD in the PC as you will need to insert USB drivers into the pendrive to install. However this is possible and you can get help here. I would definetly consider getting an SSD as it greatly changes the performance of the system (much faster in day to day activity).

I have ordered the bs542tu model as the 7th gen is too costly on Hp site , although its less then 6th gen price on Amazon India.
But still i am waiting for HP to provide full configuration which they say , do not have and waiting to get the details from singapore. They are also telling some thing weired that if i open the laptop box then i cannot be returned . So it has become very difficult until they share something in writing. Even I do not know how to esclate this to HP management
Can u tell from where we can see if the model has two ram slots or single .
There is a link here which is also telling 1 DImm
