    your motherboard uses qflash, so you can flash from usb, just put the bios on a usb stick and reboot and press end (i think) during post

    Once you boot into Windows with your new BIOS, open a command prompt as an administrator (open Start menu, type "cmd", hold CTRL and Shift and hit enter)
    Install the cert:
    SLMGR.VBS -ilc C:\<insert path here>\HP.XRM-MS
    Wait for the dialog box, hit ok.
    Now, install the key:
    SLMGR.VBS -ipk *****************************
    Wait for the dialog box, hit ok.
    Check your activation status in the system control panel or run the following command:
    SLMGR.VBS -dlv

    no replace that with wherever you put the cert. for simplicity just put it on your C: drive so all you need to do is type SLMGR.VBS -ilc C:\HP.XRM-MS
