HP Elitepad 1000 G2 , BIOS Application Error (501)

While imaging HP Elitepad 1000 G2 I ran into the problem when trying to enter BIOS. Elitepad was hooked to docking station and connected to keyboard. When I pressed F2 I got the following error

The HP BIOS location selected is corrupt or missing.Please install the application and try again
BIOS Application error (501)



Upon research I found out that this is an expected error for UEFI secure bios and I need to create a extra thumb drive to boot this tablet into BIOS.

Here is download link to HP hardware diagnostics tool .This tool lets you enter BIOS and provide other diagnostics utilities as well.

After you download it the HP hardware diagnostics utility , You can install it on USB Drive . Ensure that USB drive has no data and is formatted . This utility will rename the USB drive to HP_TOOLS



Click Next




Accept the licence agreement, Click next


Wizard will decompress it to temp location



Click Next



Select USB Drive




Files are extracted and program is ready to install , Click next



Beginning install




Installation Wizard ask to create HP_TOOLS volume label.




This completes the installation




This is what is inside the boot media. Main folder Hewlett-Packard and three sub folders




Now connect the newly created HP Diagnostic media to HP Elitepad 1000 G2 docking station

Boot up the tablet while pressing the volume key on tablet and press F2


This takes you to BIOS , Now you can press F10 or navigate using keyboard to enter BIOS



This concludes the post
