    1. Download This:
    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software7/COL16585/pv-43507-1/sp26834.exe

    2. Extract to a folder using WinRAR
    (or whatever software you want)
    you should get 5 files

    311.rom
    Flash.exe
    Installer.exe
    sp26834.rtf
    Winflash.sys

    3. Delete the 311.rom
    4. Copy Your Modded Bios into That Folder
    5. Rename Your Modded Bios to 311.rom
    6. Run Installer.exe

    That Should Install Your Modded Bios
    All you have to do is sit back and relax :p

    Rename your modded bios to 311.rom and paste it with Installer.exe
    Basically What Were Trying to Accomplish here is delete the Unmodified 311.rom from HP and
    replace it with the Modified Bios File...

    To be perfectly honest you are better off flashing your BIOS from the DOS environment. Take a look at this thread by Nojuan999. It will give you the steps needed to create a bootable usb drive for flashing from DOS. Its much more reliable to flash from DOS.

    Hi If I was Computer Savy I Could Probably Make A USB Boot Disc Which I Am Not I Would Rather Do What Vladxed666 told me to do but he needs to explain in more detail to me what i am doing wrong it sounds more easier to do for me what he is trying to tell me to do unless someone can explain in more detail to do.

    First of all remove any activation cracks that you have previously been using and reboot the machine. Now open the folder where you extracted these files:

    1.)311.rom
    2.)Flash.exe
    3.)Installer.exe
    4.)sp26384.rtf
    5.)WinFlash.sys

    Now open the folder containing your modified BIOS; right click and copy the modified BIOS.rom file which you have renamed to 311.rom. Go to the first folder you opened containing the original files. Now in an empty space area of that folder right click and select paste. You will be prompted that the file already exists, choose replace file. Then proceed with the installer. Hopefully this will work for you.

    I really would advise against flashing from windows though, ive bricked a mobo in the past doing this. I learnt the hard way. Flashing from DOS is better and safer. Nojuan999's guide is not difficult to follow and will give better results. You should ask yourself if you are really ready to start flashing BIOS, there is always an element of risk. Im speaking from experience. :)
