zx6000 has invalid UUID

I replaced a system board in a zx6000 and I now get a warning 55: Invalid system ID. The primary UUID is "magic" (all Fs) and there's a valid secondary UUID, but I'm not getting the prompt to copy the one into the other. It appears I need to be in manufacturing mode to set the UUID manually and I don't have a password for that.

Is there a way to get the system to copy the valid UUID into the invalid one?

Re: zx6000 has invalid UUID

It is strange to me if no prompt appears during the boot. Have you ever replaced the system board and copied UUIDs successfully? I wonder if you have overlooked the message? If you are sure the system does not prompt for the UUID copy, I would suggest you will contact HP support center and request a CE onsite.

If you have missed the prompt then you will have to get a CE out to perform the work.

Hi Malcolm,

If am not wrong you can set the UUID from MP..



This should let u change the UUID.

No, MP ID command will not change UUID.
