    I have a HP Pro 3500 Midi Tower that has a bricked bios after trying to upgrade the bios.
    System powers up and starts beeping

    I allready extracted the rompaq and files inside are

    CU3_814.ROM
    FLASH.BAT
    safuwin.exe
    sp60662.cva

    How to recover the systems uefi AMI bios?

    Thanks in advance

    I allready tried to rename CU3_814.ROM to HPBIOS.ROM and put in on blank usb stick and booting with CTRL+HOME pressed but this does not start recovery.

    Forgot to mention this.

    When i power up the pc it's shows a normal white/blue power led.
    After some seconds it beeps en power led blink orange this occurs 8 times after you see the usb stick accessed but looks like it doesn't find what it's looking after. The power led from then on is solid white/blue.

    No screen when all this is happening

    try Insyde EFI methods.. its not RSA signed.
    likely needs the USB EFI environment made with sp61282.exe

    and bios likely goes in folder Hewlett-Packard\Bios\Current (and Previous folder u have to make in usb.. or look in your hard disk HP Tools parititon)
    might have to unplug hdd so usb EFI takes over.

    possible name might be 2ABF.ROM
    try older 8.12 if 8.14 dont recover ?

    (from phoenix mod tool)

    no socket looks like it's soldered to the mainboard. Then I'm out of luck and I will need to contact HP for warranty

    system is in warranty. But it would easier to fix it then to send it in for repair
