HP Envy 17-J029nr "Bricked BIOS"

HP Recommended

I upgraded my BIOS to F.35 and it said it was successful but now it boots with a black screen. I have tried the Windows+B Key but it flashed 2 times on the Caps Lock which means BIOS Corruption. I erased the hard drive a long time ago so I have no access to HP_TOOLS on there but I can create one for the Flash Drive.


Now, question is how to get the BIOS FILES on the flash drive to flash it properly? Any idea?

 

Thanks!

If someone could make me a Recovery by using a USB and then uploading the files I would appreciate it. Sadly, for some stupid reason HP fixed it to where you can't do this on any other system except the HP Envy Haswell J Series or use the 3rd option to provide me with just the bios file.

*bump*

 

Did you get anywhere with this? Any luck with a friendly passerby sending you the BIOS files?
