HP 8470P MPM Unlock

Hello HP Team

 

We are trying to unlock the MPM by using SMC tool as provided by HP with no success so far. Everytime we do the mentioned steps a msg comes after starting the machine (SMC command failure).

 

Kindly provide us with a quick soulotion for this matter.

 

Thanks

Hello

 

Please ensure that you are doing the following.

 

1. Use a USB Drive which is 2GB or Less.

2. Ensure that the drive is formatted in FAT32 file format.

 

I have seen in the past that some vendors of USB keys just don’t work well with the .BIN files. So if you aren’t able to unlock the MPM mode, I would suggest trying the other USB ports or using a different vendor of USB drive. You may also need to run the utility twice.

 

If the issue still persists, the systenm board may have to be replaced.

You would need to contact HP Techincal support at 1-800-334-5144.

They would create and send the file to you with instructions on how to run the file to unlock the MPM.
