Re: DL145 G1 - how to update BIOS without floppy

The easiest way is to use usb floopy drive , or prepare pendrive with Disk Storage Format Tool:

You`ll use option "create a dos startup disk " and point to Your update disk.

Hi,
You will have to use the USB key for this purpose and use the HP USB key utility found in the following location:

or use a usb cd drive or cdrom media(DVD-ROM Option Kit 361040-B21) and use the firware CD.
