    I had to use the recovery method described on the first post here, but IIRC I wasn't able to do it from a USB stick. The USB stick was getting disconnected since the USB controller was getting reset as part of the flash process.

    Just going by memory, I had to boot my original HP formatted hard drive and put the files into the hidden drive partition (should have the directory structure Hewlett-Packard/Bios/Current). Then follow the recovery process in the first post here.

    If you get it to work, please let us know.
