Hm, how do you update BIOS with SSM? I don't know how to use this program...=(
Was about to send it over to you. Ahh cool. Now it's available.
Do you know how to use SSM to flash the BIOS? I don't get it.
... but they don't exactly make it an easy find... a search of their sites returned 'no results' for that exact phrase...
woaaaah nelly... wouldn't install... ssm not vista compliant??!!
But i found this on an altiris supprt site:
We testing SSM as a solution to keep all of our HP system drivers/BIOS up to date and it's been working fine for all the models we have except for the TC4400. We downloaded all of the latest SSM enabled drivers from hp.com and have found that whenever we run it on a TC4400 we get the following on reboot:
The following configuration change was requested to this computer's Trusted Platform Module (TPM): Allow a user to take ownership of the TPM
It then prompts us for a password to continue at which point we try every password we know (including the BIOS password set in SSM) but we can't get in. It also prompts for the password when trying to enter the BIOS and again, the password we set in SSM does not work. It should be noted that SSM works fine on all of our other models and sets the specified BIOS password correctly.
So far we've killed two TC4400 tablets in this way. I have one of them out for repair by HP and when it gets back I don't want to kill it again when I try SSM on it. My first action was to take out TPM and anything that requires it from the SSM repository.
I need to make sure SSM works on all models and am open to any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening again.
I look forward to your suggestions.
and hey, there are all kinds of 'tings on the xp tablet driver download page that have no equivalent in vista for the tc4400 -- are any of these working under vista, or...?
Vista ENTERPRISE has a windows (non-ssm) based bios install, so i assume that it would not be wise to use it if I have vista BUSINESS?!
Yeah I'm using the windows-based. I wonder if I can uninstall SSM then hehe.
so you are enterprise 32bit?
