Abstract

The purpose of this white paper is to present both an overview of the preinstalled software operating system support along with a brief description of major software components and features. This white paper covers the new HP

Compaq Business Desktop dc7800 models, along with a comparison to HP Compaq Business Desktop dc7700 and the HP Compaq Business Desktop dc7600.

Definition of Terms

Preinstalled applications – Applications that are installed in the factory and are ready to use immediately.

Preloaded applications – Applications from HP that are loaded on the hard drive in an uninstalled state; the user must install the application manually before it can be used. The HP Software Setup application provides a simple interface to access the uninstalled applications.

Software Setup –An application provided by HP that makes it easier to locate and install software that is preloaded (not preinstalled) on the hard drive.

Product family – A set of form-factor types within a numerically defined series. For example, the HP Compaq

Business Desktop dc7800 Series consists of the HP Compaq dc7800 Convertible Minitower Business PC, HP

Compaq dc7800 Small Form Factor Business PC, and the HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-slim Desktop Business PC.

QFE – Often referred as QFE’s or quick fixes, Microsoft calls them Quick Fix Engineering Software Updates. The

QFE’s are important software updates provided by Microsoft and many are included in operating system images provided by HP.

Restore Plus! CD – System recovery media provided by HP as ISO files in a partition on HDD. Users can burn these files onto a set of CD’s that allow a user to re-image the system back to its factory state.

HP Backup & Recovery Manager – application software that facilitates creation of the Restore Plus! CD sets as well as provides full disaster recovery and backup/restore functionality.

Standalone service packs – A large collection of QFE’s from Microsoft that are grouped together to provide a significant update to an existing Microsoft operating system.

Sysprep (System preparation tool)—A Microsoft tool that prepares the operating system for imaging. This tool must be run before imaging a system and then deploying that image. Sysprep.exe can be found on your operating system CD obtained from either HP or Microsoft. Sysprep, as well as other useful documentation and tools, is contained in the named deploy.cab, located in the support\tools directory.

ROM BIOS Information

Key features of the dc7800 BIOS include:

HP Compaq dc7800 Software Overview Whitepaper 12

Deployment and manageability - HP BIOS provides several technologies that help integrate the HP Business desktop computer into the enterprise such as PXE, remote configuration, remote control, and F10 Setup support for

12 languages.

Stability - HP BIOS supports the HP stable product roadmap by releasing only critical BIOS changes to the factory and advanced change notification.

Security - HP BIOS offers a robust and flexible set of security features to help the system administrator secure their systems from removal of sensitive data, and help prevent access by unauthorized users, subversion of OS security policies, removal of hardware, flash of rogue BIOS images, master boot record viruses, and attacks on BIOS settings.

Thermal and power management - The HP BIOS provides and enables thermal and power management technologies to assist in operating the HP Business Desktop computer in any enterprise environment.

Serviceability - HP BIOS provides diagnostic and detailed service information.

Upgrades and recovery - HP BIOS provides numerous ways to upgrade HP Business Desktop computers including BIOS updates from within DOS (Flashlite), BIOS updates from within Windows (HPQFlash, SSM), and failsafe recovery.

Additional BIOS Highlighted Features

Power-On password - The power-on password helps prevent an unauthorized user from powering on the system. After a power-on password is established, the user is required to type the password during the power-on process.

Administrator password - The administrator password, also known as the setup password, helps prevent unauthorized changes to the system configuration. If the administrator password is not known, the BIOS version cannot be changed and changes cannot be made to BIOS settings using F10 setup or under the OS.

Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) - Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) represents a significant innovation in power and configuration management, allowing operating systems and applications to manage power based on activity and usage. HP Compaq dc7800 models use ACPI to provide power conservation features under Windows XP and Windows 2000.

The ROM BIOS version that will initially ship on the dc7800 is version 3.0.1.1104.

Common Image Considerations

One of the design benefits of the dc7800 product family is that HP carefully engineers the software image to be compatible across the various hardware form factors within the family. An important ingredient is delivering common hardware architecture as this reduces image compatibility issues. HP realizes that many of our customers create their own OS images to incorporate applications and standards for their business.

For customers who create their own images it is recommended by HP to begin with the factory preinstalled image as a “base” for the common image. If the file system type or the partition structure is not desirable, HP recommends that you still use the factory-preinstalled image to build the common image. File system and partitioning can be customized during the image load phase of the deployment process.

If the factory-preinstalled image has already been removed from the hard drive, you may restore that image using the HP Backup & Recovery Manager included with the computer. For more information on building a common image please refer to HP document, Building a Common Image, Developing a Common Image across HP Desktops, part number 339083-002.

HP Compaq dc7800 Software Overview Whitepaper 13

Software Image Development on dc7800 Stable Products

At the product launch of the dc7800 product family, the dc7800 small form factor (SFF), ultra-slim desktop (USDT), and convertible mini-tower (CMT) designs will utilize the Intel Q35 Express chipset. It is important to point out that

HP will deliver a common software OS image that is fully compatible between the dc7800 CMT, SFF, and USDT architectures.

• To prevent visible hardware re-enumeration between the SFF, CMT, and USDT systems, HP recommends that customers follow recommended procedures to prepare their system image using

Microsoft’s Sysprep tool. For guidelines on how to develop a sysprep image refer to HP whitepaper,

“Building a Common Image” part number 339083-002.

• If the software image is captured without first using Sysprep but instead copied to new systems using a disk duplication tool, the operating system will require discovery of new hardware causing visible re-enumeration, even on identical chipset hardware.

Visible re-enumeration is common function of the operating system (to enable hardware support) and should not be a cause for concern as long as the appropriate drivers are available for the operation system to locate and install. If during re-enumeration a software driver is not found during the discovery process, the affected hardware will not be properly installed and the hardware device will be unavailable to the user. The hardware devices can be viewed using Windows Device Manager and each unavailable hardware device will display a yellow exclamation mark

“!” commonly referred to as bang. At this point, proper loading of the appropriate software driver for the hardware device will enable the unsupported device to function.

Important Note: When creating a master image it is very important to keep the hardware device drivers in their original directory locations. Moving them can cause Windows to not properly locate the software drivers for installation during the hardware discovery process and fail. If it is deemed necessary to move drivers to another location within the image, it is important to update the path directory requirement for the Sysprep process. For more about driver directory path structures see “Pooling Drivers on the Reference Machine” in the HP whitepaper,

“Building a Common Image” part number 339083-002.

CODEC. The ADI drivers include a control panel for controlling features of the audio subsystem. ADI's control panel

HP Compaq dc7800 Software Overview Whitepaper 15

is accessible from the Windows control panel or optionally through a system tray icon. In order to enable the HD audio bus in Windows XP, Q888111 (The Microsoft UAA bus driver) must be installed on the system before the ADI driver is installed. Both Q888111 and the ADI audio drivers are available from the HP support web site for the dc7800. HP's BIOS settings allow for disabling the internal speaker for users operating in a quiet environment such as libraries.

HP Client Management Interface

Regardless of the system management tools your IT department uses, managing both your hardware and software assets is important to keeping your IT costs low and your business agile.

With the HP Client Management Interface (HP CMI), new HP business computers seamlessly integrate into your managed IT environment. HP CMI provides an interface that the IT Administrator can write scripts to that simplifies the integration of HP business computers with popular industry system management tools (including Microsoft

Systems Management Server, IBM Tivoli Software, and HP Software Client Automation products) and custom inhouse developed management applications. Using HP CMI, systems management tools and applications can request in-depth client inventory, receive health status information, and manage system BIOS settings by communicating directly with the client computer, reducing the need for agent or connector software to achieve integration. HP Client Management Interface is based on industry standards that include Microsoft Windows

Management.

Interface (MS WMI), Web Based Enterprise Management (WBEM), System Management BIOS (SMBIOS), and

Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI). HP CMI is a foundation technology utilized in HP Client

Management Solutions. With HP CMI, HP gives you flexibility in choosing how you manage your HP client computers.

HP Client Management Interface used in conjunction with system management software can:

• Request in-depth client inventory information— Capture detailed information about the processors, hard drives, memory and BIOS, including sensor information (such as fan speed, voltage, and temperature).

• Receive health status information — Subscribe for a wide range of client hardware alerts (such as overtemperature, fan stall, and hardware configuration changes) to be sent to the system management console, application, or to the local client computer. Alerts are sent real-time when triggered by hardware events.

• Manage system BIOS settings — Perform “F10” key functions including setting and changing the BIOS passwords and computer boot order remotely from your system management console on any or all of your client systems without having to visit each machine.

General Software Image Contents

HP Compaq Business Desktops come standard with a factory-installed software image. The image consists of a number of separate software components including the operating system (such as Microsoft Windows XP

Professional Edition), drivers for the specific hardware devices included with your system (such as graphics, network interface cards, modems, etc.), and a small number of additional applications. See the Additional Software section for possible list of applications.

Quick fixes (QFEs) are also included with the image for any Microsoft operating system issues that HP identified as problems that might affect its customers. These QFEs will show up under the Add/Remove Programs applet in the

Control Panel. Since most of these fixes are critical in nature, they will appear grayed out by design so they cannot be removed.

Standalone service packs may also be preloaded on some systems depending on the version of the integrated operating system and the timing and nature of the HP Compaq Business Desktop product introduction. Other software applications that are preloaded include optional business software. Examples of these types of applications include Norton Anti-Virus, and Altiris Deployment Agent for Windows (A Client). An HP developed application called Software Setup provides a user interface to allow installation of these optional preloaded programs.
