I have solved my problem.
I confirm that bios in CQ57 is same as in CQ43.
File names is: 03672.bin 03674.bin 03676.bin
I have tried other USB port and USB Flash drive and it works!
Now see here to enable SLIC.
Tito, by AIDA64 i see that SLIC in bios is 2.0 version.
How about 2.1 for Windows 7?
Is it possible?
Update to the latest bios, then try to change the OS SKU to Windows 7 by the dmi tools.
My friend has an old Compaq CQ42 originally came with DOS. After unlocking slic, it was 2.0. But after the latest bios upgrade, it became 2.1.
Tito, It great!
I'll go to try this
Hi, do you still have a copy of these bios files? I have a CQ57 that has a corrupted bios and I have no way of getting these files except from someone like you, can you help me out please?
I don't have it anymore, you should search Hewlett-Packard® Notebook System Recovery KIT DISK's
Can't put links but you can find it on rutracker org
I have found it www . hangebi . com / cq43biosrecovery . rar
Please tell me how you do it fully procedure please and how flash by usb
As I remember, you need just unpack archive to USB flash, connect it and turn on Notebook. You will see mouse button and english instruction on monitor.
not all CQ57 are same. .. the product id under battery is different.
