Hello

I am trying to upgrade the Bios of "HP ProDesk 400 G6", using the tool "HpFirmwareUpdRec.exe".
In a sequence, I run the following command: cmd.exe / c "HpFirmwareUpdRec.exe -s -r -h -b -p" password.bin "-f"% Model% "":

Here is the sequence:

The error message encountered in the "smsts.log" log:

    Hi, @IMAD
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Compared with HPBIOSUPDREC, the -F of HpFirmwareUpdRec has changed from specifying the ROM Bin file, to specify the folder containing the firmware update files.

    And on the new models, HP provides by default an HP_TOOLS partition of 2GB. Turns out that the HPFirmwareUpgRec is using that partition to update the BIOS, without this partition, the BIOS will NOT update.

    You may check below article for more details, although it uses sccm to update HP bios, but I think it has a certain reference for you:
