@Carlosfromaelet

Thank you for joining HP Forums. 

I'll be glad to help you 🙂 

 

As I understand you want to update the BIOS while the hard drive isn't detected,

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

Did you run a hardware test on the HDD to ensure the drive is still functional?

Have you attempted to update the BIOS using a flash drive?

 

While you respond to that, here's a link that contains details on how to update BIOS using a flash drive: Click here

And yes, you should be able to update without the HDD as well.

 

If I have helped you resolve the issue, feel free to give me a virtual high-five by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon below,  

Followed by clicking on "Accept as solution" from the drop-down menu on the upper right corner, 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum.  Have a great day!
