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)

1000G2_0

 

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
