DESCRIPTION:

This package creates files that contain an image of the System BIOS (ROM) for
the supported notebook models in the 68CDD ROM family. This package is used to
flash the System ROM on a supported notebook.

This package includes several methods for updating the BIOS version as follows:

- Use the HPQFlash Utility to update the BIOS directly in a Microsoft Windows
Operating System environment.

- Use System Software Manager (SSM) to update the system BIOS on PCs in a
network.

To determine the ROM family and ROM date, press F10 on the notebook during
startup to run the Setup Utility, and then view File/System Information.

be reinstalled.
