Thank you for the document - it seems to work properly - my system went through the BIOS update process using the latest .BIN file. It still hung at the end, during the POST process, however. Seeing as how HP had changed the HDD cable out before, I disconnected the HDD, and it would then allow it to go into BIOS. I inspected the ribbon cable connected to the HDD - it appeared to be slightly "cocked" - I reseated it and reinserted the HDD - it appears to be working OK (for now). Misleading error message, for sure. Thank you for your help.

Have the same problem, and tried to use a iomega floppy, but it don't start read the floppy.
Must I have a original HP floppy?
I have tried to disconnect the HDD, unplug the battery for 24h, but without success.
I run Ubuntu on the computer, but I don't think this could create the issue, since it doesn't boot up the bios, with or without the HDD connected.
