    I have a HP Paviion dv6t-1000 that lost the serial number, model and so on in the bios. Before I go on to what I did I am a bit confused on if I really have a dv6t. I purchased two HP Paviion dv6t-1000 at the same time from HP, both product stickers show them to be a model # Paviion dv6t-1000, BOTH P/N Kq574AV and both showed dv5t in the bios using bios f11. Not sure if HP sold me dv5's with dv6 tags. Anyways on both of them you have to refer to dv5 for the bios on HP site. Now on to what I did was used HP DMI TOOLKIT to enter the serial number back on the one that lost all the info and was able to boot to the vista that came with the system. I decide upgrade to win 7 and on the first reboot all I can get now is the hp splash screen, can't enter bios or boot to another device now. I search here and found the BIOS recovery, "Window Key + B" method but I must not have the files right on the usb. Anyone that could help me figure out what I am doing wrong will be appreciated.

    Assuming that you've got one dv6 that works and has the OS you want
    why not take the hard drive out of the bad one put it in a usb box
    clone it to the good one then put it back
    it should boot without protest
    that would at least defer the problem till another day

    (OP)
    Update...I was able to flash the bios in dos by creating a usb volume name HP_TOOLS. Downloaded & extracted updated 3602F21.fd bios from HP. then I placed 4 copy's of the bios renamed them to 3602 >no ext, 3602.bin> changed the ext to .bin, 3602.fd> removed F21 and 3602.rom> changed the ext to rom. I then add the four renamed bios to the usb and performed the startup while pressing windows & B tab on power-up till first beep and let it flash till it turned off. Rebooted now it has the updated F21 bios able to enter bois but I am still missing the info stated above.What I am still missing now is the UUID number, product configuration Id and fix the factory installed Os where it says nob-vista. Anyone know where the UUID & product configuration Id number is located?

    It must be a dv5 cause of the bios, I will give HP a call on why I have dv6 tags but bios shows dv5.
