Reinstalling Windows on HP laptop (BIOS Settings)
Good hour to everyone! I don’t know this specially or by chance, but the installed Windows on laptops is often terribly brake (with unnecessary additions, programs). Plus to this, the disk is not very convenient. one single section with Windows OS (not counting another “little” under the backup). Here, in fact, not so long ago I had to “understand” and reinstall Windows on the HP 15-AC686ur laptop (a very simple budget laptop without bells and whistles. By the way, it was on it that extremely “buggy” Windows was installed-because of this I was asked to help. I photographed some points, so, in fact, this article was born :)).
Remarka! Since this HP laptop does not have a CD/DVD drive, the Windows installation was performed with USB flash drives (t.to. This is the easiest and fastest option).
The issue of creating a bootable flash drive in this article I do not consider. If you do not have such a flash drive, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the following articles:
- Creation of the Windows XP, 7, 8, 10. https: // PCPRO100 loading flash drive.info/ Fleshka-S-Windows7-8-10/ (in the article I consider installing Windows 10 from a flash drive created based on this article :));
- Creating a bootable UEFI flash drive. https: // PCPRO100.info/kak-zozdat-zagruzochnuyu-UEFI-Fleshku/
BIOS settings buttons
Remarka! I have an article on the blog with a large number of buttons to enter BIOS on various devices. https: // PCPRO100.info/kak-vyti-vios-klavishi-vhoda/
In this laptop (what I liked), there are several buttons for entering a variety of settings (moreover, some of them duplicate each other). So, here they are (they will also be duplicated in photo 4):
- F1. systemic information about the laptop (not in all laptops there is such a thing, but here they built in such a budget :));
- F2. diagnosis of a laptop, viewing information about devices (by the way, the tab supports the Russian language, see. photo 1);
- F9. choosing a loading device (T.e. our flash drive, but more on that below);
- F10. BIOS settings (the most important button :));
- Enter. continue loading;
- ESC. see the menu with all these laptop loading options, select any of them (see. photo 4).
Important! T.e. If you do not remember the BIOS entry button (or something else), then on a similar range of laptops. you can safely press the ESC button after turning on the laptop! over, it is better to press several times until the menu appears.
Note! You can install Windows, for example, in UEFI mode (for this you need to write a flash drive accordingly and configure BIOS. details about this here: https: // PCPRO100.info/kak-ustanovit-windows-8-UEFI/). In my example below, I will consider the “universal” method (t.to. It is suitable for installing Windows 7).
So, to enter the BIOS on the HP laptop (. HP15-AC686 laptop) You need to press the F10 button several times-after you turned on the device. Next in the BIOS settings you need to open the System Configuration section and go to the Boot Options tab (see. Photo 2).
Next, you need to set several settings (see. Photo 3):
- Make sure that USB boot is turned on (there should be Enabled mode);
- LEGACY SUPPORT Turn on (there should be Enabled mode);
- In the Legacy Boot Order list, move the lines with USB to first places (using F5, F6 buttons).
Next, you need to save the settings and restart the laptop (F10 key).
Actually, now you can start installing Windows. To do this, we insert a pre.prepared, loading USB flash drive into a USB port and reboot (turn on) laptop.
Next, click the F9 button several times (or ESC, as in photo 4. and then select the boot device option, t.e. In fact, click F9 again).
Boot Device Option
A window should appear in which you can choose a boot device. T.to. We are installing Windows from a flash drive. you need to select a line with “USB Hard Drive” (see. Photo 5). If everything is done correctly, then after a while you should see the welding window of the Windows OS installation (as in photo 6).
Selecting flash drive to start installing Windows (Boot Manager).
Update Your HP Notebook/PC BIOS from Windows
The BIOS setup is this to install the OS is completed.
HP laptop starting the Windows 8 and 10
To get started, it is better to seek the help of the attached computer instructions. But the happy owners of modern laptops are usually deprived of this possibility. In a box with a device, except for a power supply and a warranty coupon, other documentation is most often simply not. And there is no single standard for entering the initial settings for entering the BIOS on the laptop either. For different manufacturers, this process is launched in their own way. And from the owner of the HP device, Pavilion may need a good reaction to quickly find, and even quickly press the desired button or key at the first start. At the same time, you should not miss the moment when a hint is visible on the monitor how to enter the initial installations on a laptop.
But that’s not all. In modern laptops, instead of traditional mechanical HDDs, SSD hardening drives are placed. Performance and speed increased, so the process of loading Windows 8 and 10 occurs almost instantly. Accordingly, there is no chance to press the corresponding button on the keyboard on time, there is no.
But the question is how to open access to the basic HP settings for Windows 8.1 or 10, you can also solve quite simply:
By clicking on the Start button, we find the line “Parameters” in the menu.
This method is suitable for a one.time entrance.
But you can make a permanent launch with each download of Windows 8 systems.1 or 10:
Now, at the next time the system launches on HP, see the BIOS settings will be much easier.
For laptops, HP Pavilion G6 BIOS is made in such a way that even when the system starts the user, the user himself can run the built.in programs that can help with the diagnosis or configure the laptop. There is even the opportunity to reinstall Windows if the boot image of the system was created in advance. All operations are activated by special keys with which you can cause, for example, a program for analyzing the RAM and the entire hard drive. You can see all the information about this laptop.
BIOS \ UEFI Update HP laptop. HP Laptop BIOS \ UEFI Update. HP 15-BW018UR, 15-BWXXXUR, 15-BW000ur.
There is a HP 15-BW018UR laptop. About him here.We need to update the BIOS from version f.21 for more new. In principle, f.22 would fit to support SSD, but decided to install the current F.40 hoping to remove a bug with temperature sensors in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
BIOS. fashionable UEFI, it was expected that everything will be simple, convenient. Expected.
Problems 3: 0). HP itself, it is Hewlett-Packard. She has big problems with adequate and relevant instructions for RU and EN. You have to look for information by bit, fill the cones. I did not find a full.fledged algorithm, therefore I write this post.In the RU segment, people reach up to cut off a strictly defined number of bytes, the image of the image and subsequent filling using the programmer. There is just some kind of stream of consciousness in UA, from which it is difficult to highlight the essence. On the forums of “white people” grains of information and what is characterized by many messages from people with Russian surnames.The RU \ E network stores many ways how not to get anything or make a brick from a laptop. be careful. That is why I write in detail, structured.one). The BIOS of my motherboard when pressing F2 does not contain the BIOS Management item. It is decided using the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI utility installed on the USB flash drive, because this utility is launched only under Windows. But I don’t have it.2). Everything would be fine, but HP did not think about Linux \ OS users different from Win10, so you can update BIOS from under the OS only in Win10. To create a loading flash drive, you also need a computer with Win10, although I managed to create it in Win7.
The algorithm of actions: 0. Need a clean flash drive with a Fat32 file system.one. We go to the site https: // Support.HP.COM/US-EN/DRIVERS, select the type of Laptop device, then indicate the model of the laptop 15-BW018UR. The system will find in the list of supported OS only Win10. This is normal, we agree.2. Find the BIOS and Diagnostic tabs, download current versions of software.Minetle with f.40 BIOS, page with HP PC HW Diag UEFI. Both files (1), (2) in reserve are saved separately. As the saying goes, the does not pull, or in other words, the fifth point does not tear.3. We carefully read the instructions for updating BIOS, HP PC HW Diag UEFI. We clarify the parameters indicated in the instructions, save them separately, the model number will come in handy in the future, I have 8333. Copies (1), (2) pages in reserve.four. On a computer with Windows, we first install a bios f on the flash drive according to the instructions.40. Be sure to do this from the account (UZ) administrator. We take two files from the flash drive. “08332.bin “,” 08332.S12 “and save separately. I have due to the lack of a BIOS Management item in BIOS, it was not possible to update BIOS. Attempts through F9 to choose EFI files on a flash drive did not lead to success. If you can update BIOS by F2, then ok. You have achieved success, go to paragraph 9. Everyone else, like me, then.5. From the flash drive we delete all available files. Do not format. We install on the flash drive according to the instructions HP PC HW Diag UEFI. After successful installation, copy files “08332 to the root of flash drives.bin “,” 08332.S12 “received earlier. After that, just in case, remove the attribute “only for reading” from all files and folders on the flash drive on the flash drive. The action is optional, but recommended.6. Safely extract a USB flash drive from Windows. In total, the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI utility is now installed and 2 files are in the root: binary files. Image, and Es12. digital signature.7. We are convinced that the computer on which we will update BIOS is correctly configured in BIOS. Namely, he can see the flash drive, the priority of loading from the flash drive is set, the Secure Boot is disabled, if the administrator password is installed, then you remember it.eight. Turn off the computer on which we will update the BIOS. Be sure to connect external power and laptop battery. The slightest nutrition failure and the computer will say. “You, who is, I don’t know you! Come on a goodbye, waus!”, t.e. We receive most likely a “brood” laptop. Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port, turn on the computer, click Esc until we get the menu. Click F2 and get into UEFI open with flash drives. Select the item “Firmware Management or Bios Management”, select the image 08332.bin, we agree, and after about 3 restarts we get to the AS greeting screen.9. We are convinced of BIOS and OS that the version is displayed f.40. We remove the flash drive, restore if the BIOS settings are required, load and turn on the music, and even better the clip on YouTube for the song from the status. We relax, without it)))
Many thanks to Vitaly, Anatoly and Igor. Without you, I wouldn’t have happened to me.
A little details about what prompted to write this post. I spent 2 days of pure time to update BIOS. Not a single computer, for almost 20 (. ) years of my acquaintance with the world IT did not take me so much time for routine operations. Yes, there was a strange laptop with a neighbor, with a Via C7 processor, a whole bunch of problems with poor drivers, BIOS and Windows OS, it did not work out in that case. But there was a really unique case, plus the era with Dial-up the Internet, and did not really know the English language. But something tells me that English in that situation would have little to give me. There was a computer in Gravoron, which was rebooted from touch and even just passing from a person nearby (. WTF. ). After which it was extremely difficult to start. Several times they tried to fix it, but to no avail. It was impossible to replace. The very complex administrative (bureaucratic) norms regarding the information system in which he worked was accepted. Everything was simple with him. We tried not to touch him. But in our yard 2019, capitalism, a free market, UEFI BIOS, because it should live an article easier and more fun)))
In theory, BIOS can be updated in 4 ways: 1. Means of OS.2. By means of the BIOS of the motherboard itself from the carrier on which the file file is recorded.3. By means of BIOS \ parts of BIOS, recorded on the medium. In the same medium or in another place there should be a file \.four. By activating the emergency mode of the computer. Then the system will either restore the BIOS version or upgrade from a flash drive from a file-image file. The main thing is that he lay in the root of the flash drive. This method. Extreme measure.I do not consider the option with programmers and other obscurantism fundamentally. In the yard 2019, this time, and I did not set the goal of breaking BIOS are two. And three, I live in I have a family, friends, interests and hobbies very distant from computers.
Expanded BIOS HP laptops (Advanced BIOS)
Expanded BIOS HP laptops (Advanced BIOS)
HP laptops have protection “from a fool”, which closes access to most laptop settings in the BIOS (this is applicable to other computers with InsydeH20 BIOS).
What are these settings for? For example, disperse the device. Or turn off some part of the iron (for example, a burned video card).
How to go in? When you turn on the laptop (up to the boot screen), press Esc. After squeeze the English “a” and not letting it go several times on F10 without FN. A new tab “Advanced” should appear in the bios. It may not work with the 1st times.
Just promise that you will not break anything!
Funds of the operating system
The instructions are written on the example of Windows 10, but for Windows 8, all actions are similar.
At the next launch of the system, a window of its restoration will appear.
After us, he will transfer to the menu where BIOS parameters are changed.
Not all developers do so that the beginners figure out how BIOS starts. On the other hand, novice users cause less harm to their cars, because having understood a little with the menu items, they begin to experiment, for example, with the processor overclocking and seek information on how to update the BIOS firmware.
And one wrong action can lead to the fact that without visiting the service center, the laptop will be turned into a piece of metal and polymers.
P.S. Here is actually the whole process of entering the BIOS laptop HP. Keep in mind if you are a PC user at the level. “newcomers”, my advice do not tune your yourself BIOS. Not knowing and not understanding what he is responsible for, you can greatly harm your laptop.
In my practice, there were cases when, after the user’s intervention in thin settings, the device simply did not follow the restoration.
BIOS HP update
We go to BIOS. At the beginning of the article, we realized how to do it. Now we find on the Main tab about the System Board ID code.
- Turn on the laptop again and quickly press the ESC key. In the window that appears, go to the tool diagnostics tools. To do this, press the F2 key.
- Make sure the device is connected to charging. Connect a flash drive with BIOS update files.
- Select the Firmware Management option on the UEFI diagnostics screen (microprogram control).
- In the window that opens, select the BIOS Update option (update BIOS).
- Then we click on the “Select BIOS Image to Apply” parameter to select the BIOS image.
- Now we click on the hp_tools item, and then Hewlett_packard.
- Find the image in the BIOSUPDATE, Current, Previous or New.
- Now find the file that answers the code of your motherboard. For example, I have a system board 2166, which means the file will be with the name. 02166.Bin.
- To install the BIOS update on HP, click the “Apply Update Now” button.
On the screen at the time of update, you can see a process that should not be interrupted. Make sure the laptop is connected to the network. If the update has occurred with an error, the tool will immediately start the recovery process, so there is nothing to worry about.
BIOS HP update from Windows
I did a little different. I launched the utility and immediately chose the update BIOS option. The fan at this moment began to work at the maximum, so it was a little anxious. Then a warning window appeared, where it is said that the laptop should be connected to the network, not turned off to sleep.
After the update, the laptop is rebooted and the BIOS update begins.
In this article, we touched on two topics. analyzing the entrance to the BIOS HP settings and deciphering parameters, as well as BIOS updating.
This is interesting: what do BIOS sound signals mean when you turn on the computer?
Every self.respecting user must be able to go to BIOS: with his help you can fix many problems. We tell you how to do this on the example of one of the most popular brands. HP.
The most common method of using BIOS is the reinstalling of the operating system, when you need to choose a priority medium from which the load will occur. However, the functionality of the base system of input and output is huge and every year there are more and more. Current bios can do much more than their predecessors. Here is a list of the most common functions that are in any, even the simplest set of micro.programs:
- Installation of a priority carrier from which load will be made. We wrote about this a little higher.
- Setting up of the processor and cooler. Acceleration of the CPU, in contrast to the dispersal of the video card, is carried out in the bios. And this is done by adjusting such parameters as: voltage, tire frequency, multiplier and others. In modern maternity, you can set up coolers depending on temperature, building a kind of schedule. Separately, about the topic of overclocking, you can read here.
- Time, date and time zone control.
- Regulate security parameters, for example, install a password.
- Monitor the main indicators of components. This is very useful because many programs display inaccurate value. While reliable information is always shown in the bios. Provided that the latest firmware is installed, of course.
And this is far from the whole list, but a set of the most popular and necessary tools. If desired, you can always find tutorials on the content of a specifically of your set of micropramers of the motherboard.
How to choose a load from a flash drive on a hp laptop?
Turn on the laptop and click on the ESC key and you see the “Startup menu” menu appeared. Press the “F9” key. Appear “Boot Optoin Menu”. Here we choose our USB flash drive.
In most PC/laptop models, to enter the BIOS, you need to click the F2 or DEL button (sometimes F1 or ESC) immediately after turning on the device. On some laptops (for example, Lenovo) there is a special recovery button (which is pressed instead of the power button).
How to configure UEFI on HP laptop?
To go to the Boot Menu on the HP laptop, you need: when turning on Windows, immediately press the ESC key. The launch menu will display. press the F9 button.
Consider a little more HP BIOS Update
Stop. I’ll say right away, if you need to update the BIOS, you can read.
Now about the HP BIOS Update utility. To use it, you need to find out the product number, that is, the laptop, it is located on the sticker, which is located on the bottom of the laptop or on its box:
That is, it is some kind of p/n, and above it goes as I understand the serial number-S/N.
Then you need to switch to. where you need to enter the number, by the way, the site indicates that it is necessary to enter exactly the serial number
In general, it does not matter, the main thing is that everything needs infa is on the sticker. After entering the number. click BIOS (most likely it means a section or button), there will be the latest version of the BIOS, which, respectively, must be downloaded
As I understand it, not just the Bios version is downloaded, but it downloads straight with the installer, which will allow you to write the bios file on the flash drive. When the installer is launched, a window will appear where you need to press Next:
Then it will be said that this utility for updating and restoring the BIOS, as well as create a copy of the current one (perhaps this is even with the settings):
- Update. to create a flash drive with which you can update BIOS.
- Create Recovery USB Flash Driver-to create a flash drive for recovery, it is possible if the light turned off, for example, when updating the BIOS, or some kind of failure occurred.
- Copy. to create an image of the current version of the BIOS to the file, it is possible to also be saved, if so, then the function is really useful.
For example, we will choose a second point to create a flash drive for recovery:
And then the HP BIOS Update utility will offer to choose a USB flash drive, select it, you can format it immediately (Format button) and then click Next:
If everything will be successful, then you will see the word Successfully:
It remains only to press the Finish button.
What later? Then we insert the flash drive, load into the menu. where we select the Firmware Management item:
- BIOS Update. actually to update the BIOS, and as I understand it is also suitable for recovery.
- BIOS Rollback. rollback, that is, as I understand the abolition of the last bios update.
- Main Menu. just to return to the main menu.
The value of the HP Notebook System Update program is not set after several.?
Most computer errors are identified as internal for the server, and not in relation to equipment or any device that may be connected with the user. One example is a system error in which the problem violates the procedural rules. System errors are not recognized by the operating system and notify the user with the message, “A System Error Has Been Encountered. Please Try Again.”
Creating a BIOS Recovery Flash Drive for HP Notebooks | HP Notebooks | @HPSupport
The system error can be fatal, and this happens when the operating system stops for a moment, because it is in a state when it no longer works safely. Some of these errors are stopping error, error check, system failure and nucleus error.
A LOT of Users Experience Difficulties in Installing Windows Software Updates. Most of the Time, The Update Error Message Deesn’t You Anything Helpful to Fix The Issue. One Most Common Update Error IS “Windows COULD Not Search for New Updates” Plus the error code “80240442”, updates are important because they provide corrections, security corrections and other improvements
Therefore, it is very important to install them when they are available
Microsoft updated the update process in recent versions of Windows. However, this does not mean that the renewal errors do not fully correspond to reality, especially with problems related to compatibility.
How to choose a load from a flash drive on a hp laptop?
Turn on the laptop and click on the ESC key and you see the “Startup menu” menu appeared. Press the “F9” key. Appear “Boot Optoin Menu”. Here we choose our USB flash drive.
There is no dedicated connector for BIOS firmware on MSI, so use any suitable. After installing the flash drive, click the inclusion key for 4 seconds, then use the Ctrlhome combination, after which the indicator should light up. If this does not happen, try the combination of Altctrlhome.
BIOS update from Windows system
You can update the BIOS HP from under Windows, and if the system does not load, then through the boot flash drive Winpe 10-8 Sergei Strelec.
To get started, enter the BIOS and see its version.
Open the official website of the HP developer.com. Select the category “Laptop”.
Enter the serial number or laptop model in the search bar, click send.
On the POS and Drivers page, make sure that the site correctly determined your version of the Windows operating system. Under the heading “All drivers”, click on the line “BIOS“, thereby expanding the information about it.
Here you will see the latest version of BIOS. The manufacturer also makes it possible to download 3 previous versions, for this, click “Related files” and select the necessary version. Please note that in brackets it is indicated “with Intel processors” if you look for an AMD for another version and vice versa. To download to a computer, click on the link load.
Run the uploaded file with a double click of the mouse, if the security window pops up, select yes.

In the next window you will see a warning that the power supply should be connected to the laptop. Do not disconnect the charger until the entire procedure is completed. Select Next.
Next again a warning.
The window says that the laptop will reboot. During the installation of BIOS:
- Do not turn off the power.
- Do not add or delete any devices.
- Do not launch any other applications.
- Do not allow the system to go into sleep mode or gibbernation.
You can hear that the fan on the laptop is gaining high speed, this is a normal phenomenon. Do not press anything, including the power/off button, even if it seems that nothing happens, we just expect the end. The laptop will go into a reboot with a complete shutdown, after starting you will see the loading process on the black screen, as soon as it reaches 100%, it will restart again. This is all, Windows will start and you can use.
You can see information about freshly installed version in BIOS or from the system. To see in Windows, call the window “execute” using a combination of Win R keys. Enter the MSINFO32 command and click Enter. Here you will see the version of your updated BIOS.
Have a look that for updating BIOS, you are responsible only you yourself. If the BIOS does not work out correctly on the HP laptop correctly and the system does not start anymore, you will have to contact the service center. Follow the strict recommendations of this instruction and everything will end successfully.

HP OMEN 17-CB1085NG laptop. Built.in Omen Gaming Hab offers to download BIOS. I swing at a step 10 knocks out an error. 8746F15 the is not enunch free disk space to complete the system bios and device firmare udete operating. Delete Some Files and Try Again. I have 400GB of free space on the disks. This is the third laptop from the HP that falls into my hands. On each of them there was some kind of garbage with software. On one firewood did not get up on the video card, as it turned out not me a fool. And as the support of the support was said. the installation sequence must be observed. First load one specific version of these firewood. and then put new. The second laptop was not the problem. But garbage with the fact that the fucking HP Suport Assistant downloaded the same driver on Bluetoos a hundred times. So the question is. How can I put VIOS here. In what tambourines to call ?

How Bios’s damage is manifested
In most cases, the BIOS micro.opram is partially damaged, so the symptoms of failure can be different:
- When pressing PC nutrition is pressed, only the cooler is turned on, which immediately begins to rotate at the maximum speed. Sometimes LED indicators light up on the case and keyboard.
- One or a few seconds after turning on, a cyclic reboot begins. Outwardly, this is manifested by a cycle of promotions and stops of the cooler, which are repeated while food is served.
- When turning on, the power indicator lights up, the cooler does not spin.
- The computer does not show any signs of life. This happens with damage to Boot Block. the initial BIOS bootloader. This is the most difficult case.
The image on the screen is absent. Even the manufacturer’s screensaver does not appear.
BIOS firmware programmer
Other forms of BIOS damage are also found, more precisely, its area, which stores the configuration of the ME controller (component of the chipset) on boards working with Intel processors-the so-called ME Region. With problems in this area, a computer or laptop can:
- Incorrectly boot or not turn on at all.
- Turn off or restart at equal intervals of time.
- It is incorrect to regulate the speed of rotation of the cooler, for example, twist it at high speeds, regardless of the load.
The elimination of such failures consists in reading the BIOS’A dump, replacing the ME Region with clean and re-firmware using the programmer. Since repairmen usually do this, and not computers, we will not stop there. We better deal with what can be done at home without special equipment and risk to finally send your “iron pet” to the kingdom of eternity.
BIOS restoration without a programmer is possible only while maintaining an initial bootloader. To determine whether it is preserved or not, sometimes it is possible by indirect signs: flashing the screen backlight, sound signals from the system speaker, the reaction of the motherboard to turn on without RAM (sound or blinking of indicators), etc. P. With the preservation of the initial BIOS bootloader, the first points of the computer are working normally, the failure manifests itself a little later.
Emergency BIOS recovery on HP630 laptop
Hi. There was a nuisance. The HP630 laptop at one point refused to work. When turning on, flashes the Caps-Lock key and shines with a yellow LED on the Wi-Fi switching key. Sadly. A little googling realized that the problem is still not quite terrible. We must somehow update BIOS to him. I do not know if my actions are correct, but in the end I got a working nuabuk.
So. If you have similar symptoms first thing you need to look for a computer with the Internet connected :). We need to download some files.
We go to the HP support site. I can’t help but note that the site is still strange. Find something is problematic there. :(. anyway. We find our laptop in support. I had.HP630. Direct link to the driver and BIOS HP630. Here we need to download a couple of files. This is HP Notebook System Bios Update and HP BIOS Update UEFI. We also need Phoenixtool. Preferably fresher.
The article, in principle, affects several recovery options. Before messing up with a programmer, I would recommend going immediately to the preparation of an emergency USB-flash and try an easy way to recover without an excrete with a programmer and HP DMI Tools.
