Background
For decades, HP has provided unique customer value through our internally developed BIOS. This
has allowed HP to provide a high degree of integration between the firmware and HP Professional
Innovations such as HP ProtectTools, HP Wireless Assistant and HP QuickLook. Options for many
of these features are configured through F10 Setup, the BIOS configuration user interface
provided with HP PCs.
In mid-2008, HP introduced an updated version of F10 Setup on new models. This enhanced F10
Setup provides users with an intuitive graphical user interface which leverages from the design
used with the HP ProtectTools BIOS Configuration module.
Overview
Since 1999, HP Compaq business notebooks have utilized a text based F10 Setup which provided
users with access to a broad set of functions and configuration options, but required keyboard
navigation. In 2008, a new F10 Setup user interface has been developed using the Extensible
Firmware Interface (EFI) framework, which provides a flexible pre operating system environment.
While there are significant improvements to the user interface, features and functionality are not
impacted by this change.

Features
HP F10 Setup provides access to the impressive set of features support by HPs ROM BIOS (Read
Only Memory Basic Input/Ouput System). The BIOS is the set of routines that enable a computer
2
to load the operating system and communicate with the various devices, such as storage drives,
keyboard, display, slots, and ports.
HP F10 Setup features are separated in several groups or categories:
File – Provides access to general options such as view system information, set date and time, exit
F10 Setup with and without saving changes to settings and System Diagnostics.
Security – Provides access to security related options such as power on and DriveLock passwords,
integrated security device configuration, Disk Sanitizer, Intel Anti Theft and asset tag
configuration.
System Configuration – Provides access to boot options, integrated device configuration, port
options, AMT options (on select models), and F10 Setup feature access options.
HP F10 Setup for business notebooks had extensive language support. The new graphical user
interface can be displayed in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Danish, Japanese,
Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish or Finnish. Switching languages is simple using the Language
selection options available from the System Configuration page.
For a detail list of F10 Setup options, please refer to Table 1.
