[solved] Help needed Probook 4540s Standard disk image

Hi everyone,

Is there someone here at the forums that can provide me with
an Image of the HDD from a HP Probook 4540s that includes
Windows 7 Pro and the recovery partition? that I can restore
from another pc? a ghost image or something?

The reason why I ask this is because there is something wrong with
my bios, and the recovery partition has the UEFI features for
bios disaster recovery.

I hope someone can help me.
Thanks!

No. You should order recovery discs from HP if that's what you need.

I need a recovery indeed, But I think the recovery discs only work with a HP branded system.
But I will try to order those. Thanks!

Last I checked, a ProBook is "HP branded..."

I know that, But I need to recover it from another system, because I have a wrongly flashed
BIOS and cannot get the probook running. The original probook HDD contains EUFI features to
restore the bios.

That is why I asked for an image :D

It seems you're going to be sending your unit in for repair. Because if you can't get into BIOS, I don't see how a recovery image/discs are going to help you.

I've managed to fix the problem! What I did was the following procedure :

1) Format a flash drive as FAT32 and set the label "HP_TOOLS".
2) Create a directory tree "Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\Current\"
3) Unpack the SoftPaq containing a BIOS, then extract the "Rom.cab". I used version F.42.
4) Move the files "Rom.bin" and "efibios.sig" to the "Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\Current\".
5) Rename "Rom.bin" to "NAME.BIN" and "efibios.sig" to "NAME.SIG" You can find the name in the ver.txt
in the same Softpaq
6) Run the BIOS RECOVERY (Start the laptop while pressing winkey+B)

It takes about 5 minutes for the system to flash the bios with the new/fixed bios.

So If someones laptop needs fixing for a bios corruption This could fix the problem!
