Dear ALL

How I could install the firmware sp64611.exe, in a COMPAC-Presario-CQ57-421SS, with LinuxMInt installed?

Best regards

Basically, you can't -- which is why many of us retain dual-boot systems -- because most, if not all, of the system utilities provided by manufacturers run ONLY in Windows.

 

HP distributes their utilities as compressed archives -- and the only tool I know of personally that can extract the components is 7-ZIP -- another Windows utility.

 

If you CAN extract the components, you can see what they are, but most likely, the only executable parts are going to be MS Windows only.
