    Hey all,

    I'm new here. Basically, I don't want a mod. My dad did a bad flash update and now his lappy is bricked. I was wondering if someone with the same laptop ( HP Pavilion dm4 - 1160us ) would find it in their heart to go their HP_TOOLS partition and take 01433.bin file from the "Current" folder and upload it.

    I can't find the .bin file anywhere else because 1) I've deleted the HP_TOOLS partition a while ago. 2) The BIOS update available on HP's website contains an unconvertable ( if that's a word ) 01433.FD file.

    Thanks in advance,

    JB

    Thanks for your help, but I deleted the recovery partition. I was hoping someone could upload the .bin file because that's all that the "HP_TOOLS" usb stick recovery method will take for this laptop. But I will still try the one you uploaded.

    Thanks again,

    JB

    Unfortunately the file didn't work =/

    Not sure where to go from here. HP is absolutely no help, I regret buying one of their products.

    Yeah I've seen that thread before but like you said, the link is dead.

    I tried renaming it to .BIN and putting it in the appropriate folders but that didn't work, probably because it's RSA signed, and as the other thread mentioned, the FD file is a weird 2.3 MB, but the .BIN file that would normally be backed up is 2 MB.

    As for the platform, I tried renaming to 1603 ( Platform 7 ) because that's is listed on the underside of the laptop, so I figured it would be my best bet, but no luck so far.

    It would be great if we could get him to re-upload the file, or if I could fine one that's modded, don't really care haha just trying to get it up and running again.

    Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it!

    haha yeah HP tech support is nothing more than a joke!

    I tried Windows + B and X, and I've named everything correctly on the USB.

    But I'll have to read more about the .SIG file. I doubt I could just duplicate the file I have and rename it to .sig and stick in on the USB drive too, but I'll try anything at this point.

    I wish the link on that other thread wasn't dead =/ that would bring me one step closer haha

    Thanks again,

    JB

    yep I used the tool already =/

    so basically, I need to find the .bin file (2 MB) and the .sig file from somewhere, agreed?

    Thanks again,

    make a list of known models to use same SP#### that should have the 01433.BIN for F.27 or older.

    Compaq Presario CQ32 Notebook PCSeries
    HP G32 Notebook PC
    HP Pavilion dm4 Notebook PC Series
    HP Pavilion dv5 Notebook PC Series

    i know a laptop repair shop that might have one.. i can boot linux and upload to mediafire.

    That would be great. I've looked at the SP files for the laptops you listed and they're all still.FD files. I even tried a few of them, but they still don't work. I'll see if I can add to the list. I'll have to find a friend with one of those laptops.

    thanks again,

    Justin

    from what i read renaming to .bin works.. maybe u need to have old, current and new folders made in usb.. and name the usb HP_TOOLS or HP_RESTORE
    with all 3 folders inside. both containing all the names in the ini file ...bin ?

    have u tried all 4 arrow keys pressed and plug in ac power holding them then power on to force recovery usb ? (no battery)
    or win x keys

    try older version bios.
