BIOS Configuration Utility - WMI Namespace Error


BIOS Configuration Utility - WMI Namespace Error

Hi there,

I've been trying to collect a text file dump of BIOS settings for a HP Compaq 8200 Elite SFF PC through the BIOS Configuration Utility. I need this in order for me to mass deploy a custom BIOS flash to my business' workstations through SSM. All this is meant to be achieved by running the following cmd through BCU:

biosconfigutility.exe /getconfig:new.txt

Unfortunately, I am being presented with the following error:

<ERROR msg="System not supported. Unable to connect to HP WMI namespace:'root\HP'" />

<ERROR msg="BCU return value" real="16" translated="16" />

The PC is running the latest ROM firmware for it's BIOS (ROM Firmware J01 v02.29 A 2 - SoftPaq #75852)

Has anyone encountered something similar? Any help would be much appreciated!

This is the wrong company for printers and PC products. You need to register in the HP Inc. Support Forum:
