I have this notebook (in title) and I get an error message about failed BIOS recovery. I guess it is because there is no HP_TOOLS partition on HDD. I found this: "If the HP_TOOLS volume on your HDD has been deleted, a USB key with an HP_TOOLS volume can be used as an alternative. The key can be created manually or by using the HP UEFI BIOS Update SoftPAQ or the new HP UEFI Support Environment SoftPAQ and selecting the Create a USB key option."
My question: Where can I find these tools to make HP_TOOLS on USB (HP UEFI BIOS Update SoftPAQ or the new HP UEFI Support Environment SoftPAQ) or what do I need to do to make it manually? Or simply - How do I make a USB with HP_TOOLS so I can try to recover BIOS?
Thank your for your replies. If you need more information I will be glad to post them.
