Bios upgrade problem HP 840 G1 with SSM

HP Recommended

Hi,

 

Trying to upgrade bios during Operating sistem deployment with simple command:

 

\\server\ssm\ssm.exe \\server\ssm\updates /accept /noreboot /CSPWD:"BIOS_password" /Log:\\server\logs$

 

And I get error message in LOG:

  Errors

  • HP Notebook System BIOS Update (SP65524.CVA): Silent Install does not include HPQFlash

Ideas how to resolve this problem?

A review of the CVA file for SoftPaq 65524 shows the SoftPaq is using HPBIOSUPDREC.exe as the BIOS flash utility.

 

HP began using this new BIOS update utility in the second half of 2013.

HP BIOS update and recovery ( HPBIOSUPDREC.exe ) is used for new business systems, including the HP 840 G1.

 

Prior versions of SSM check the SoftPaq and its associated .CVA file to verify the HPQFlash.exe BIOS update utility is present.

 

SSM version 2.53.10 and newer check for the presence of either HPBIOSUPDREC.exe or HPQFlash.exe

 

If the SoftPaq is executed on its own ( double click or command line ), the included utility will install the BIOS if it is applicable.

 

In order to use SSM to update systems, pick up the latest version at the HP Client Management Solutions portal:

Look in the Resources menu for the HP CMS Download Library.

A direct link to the download page in the U.S. is
