Failsafe Boot Block ROM
Diagnostic Functions
The computer comes with a reprogrammable flash system ROM (read only memory). To
upgrade the ROM, download the latest ROM BIOS image from the HP Web site (www.hp.com)
and follow the online GUI/instructions.
Diagnostic functions are provided by the Setup Utility (in system ROM) and by Insight Diagnostics. Insight Diagnostics provides detailed system information including:
All ROM BIOS images from HP are digitally signed to ensure authenticity and minimize potential corruption. Your system ROM includes a Failsafe Boot Block that is protected during the
flash process and allows the computer to be restarted in the unlikely event of an unsuccessful
ROM flash.
If the system detects an invalid system ROM during the boot sequence the system will search for
a bootable device. To recover from the Boot Block recovery mode complete the following steps:
•
•
•
•
•
Processor type and speed
Memory amount, mapping, and integrity
Hardware peripheral availability/settings
Hard drive type, space used/available
System identification, asset tracking
Insight Diagnostics may be pre installed on some models and can be downloaded free of charge
from www.hp.com.
Boot Block Recovery
1.
Remove any bootable media from the computer and turn off power.
2.
Insert a bootable diskette, or CD containing the ROM BIOS.
Error Conditions and Messages
3.

Security Functions
The system offers a single supervisor password for system and data protection.
The password, if established, protects the computer from unauthorized access by prompting the
user for a password during power up. The password, if established, protects the computer from
unauthorized or inadvertent re-configuration by prompting the user for a password prior to
entering the Setup Utility.
Establishing a password:
1.
Turn on or restart the computer. If you are in Windows, click Start > Shut Down >
Restart the computer.
2.
When the F10 Setup message appears in the lower-right corner of the screen, press the
F10 key. Press Enter to bypass the title screen, if necessary. If you do not press F10 when
prompted, a restart will be necessary.
3.
Select Password Option, then select Change Supervisor Password and follow the
instructions on the screen. You may also want to establish the Password check at this time.
This will allow you to specify when the password will be required.
4.
Before exiting, click File > Save Changes and Exit.
