HP Compaq dc7700p Business Desktop System BIOS for Intel vPro Technology (786E1 BIOS)

By downloading, you agree to the terms and conditions of the HP Software License Agreement.

Version:3.03 Rev. A (12 Sep 2007)

These downloads are available for customers according to the terms in the HP Software License Agreement. Certain software may require a valid warranty, current support contract with HP, or a license fee.
This package contains utilities that can be used to restore or update the 
system BIOS on the supported desktop models with a 786E1 BIOS.

The Active Management Technology (AMT) V2.2 Management Engine (ME) firmware 
image is only intended for Intel vPro configurations. This package, including 
the V3.03 system BIOS, is not intended for non-AMT systems. 

IMPORTANT: The system should NOT be updated with this new ME firmware if it is 
a non-vPro configuration, or if it is using ASF as the management selection in 
a vPro configuration. Once the ME firmware is updated to this new image, it 
CANNOT be re-flashed to an older ME firmware version (that is, it CANNOT be 
restored to a V2.0, or earlier AMT version), and functionality may be adversely 
impacted in some ASF configurations.

Several methods for changing the BIOS version may be chosen. Included in this 
package are the following methods:

- Use the DOS utility with a pre-boot execution environment (PXE) management 
application to locally update or restore the system BIOS.
- Use HPQFlash to upgrade the BIOS directly in a Microsoft Windows or Microsoft 
Windows Vista environment.
- Create a CD image to upgrade/restore system BIOS.
