HP ProBook 6540b Notebook PC BIOS F.0A
This package creates files that contain an image of the System BIOS (ROM) for the supported notebook models with a 68CDD Family ROM. This package is used to flash the System ROM on supported notebooks. This package includes several methods for updating the BIOS version, as follows: - Use the HPQFlash Utility to update the BIOS directly in a Microsoft Windows Operating System environment. - Create a bootable USB Key to update the system BIOS. - Use HP System Software Manager (SSM) to update the system BIOS on target PCs in a network. NOTE: To determine the ROM family and ROM date, press F10 on the target notebook during startup to run the Setup Utility, and then view File/System Information.
- Updates the preboot execution environment (PXE) ROM to version 188.8.131.52. - Shortens the time required for the Disk Sanitizer process. - Moves the System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) table to accommodate the way certain third-party programs address SMBIOS memory. - Adds a "DriveLock password on restart" option to the F10 Setup Utility to enable users to enable or disable a prompt for the DriveLock password when restarting the notebook. - Adds the HP DayStarter feature. HP DayStarter provides some customized or personalized information during the startup (boot) process, while the main Microsoft Windows Operating System loads in the background. For example, the system can display the user's calendar for the day so the user can determine the time and location of his or her first meeting.
1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved).
2. Depending on the desired update method, complete either of the following actions:
a. To update the BIOS using HPQFlash or to create a bootable disk-on-key, double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.
b. To use HP System Software Manager (SSM) to update the BIOS on notebooks in a network, copy the downloaded file to the file store, and then run the SSM software.
- Fixes an issue where the notebook does not boot from a bootable CD if an external USB CD/DVD drive is used.
