so i subscribed to HP's alert emails that tell me when there are product updates and spam. today i got a nice one: there is a f.03 bios update that was apparently released october 8th. in spite of the fact that this was two weeks ago, i can't seem to find the bios update anywhere on their site. the link in the email sends me to the page where all the other software and driver and downloads are. id really like this update because it fixes that annoying bug when if you have a usb device attached the comp wont boot. the fixes are: DETAILS OF CHANGE New features: Updated Intel Memory Reference Code (MRC) to version 1.4 to align with the latest Intel MRC code release. Field issue fixes: Fixed an issue where the computer hangs during boot if legacy USB devices (external keyboard and mouse) are attached to the system. Removed the warning message about the computer not having a WLAN card installed.
