Pavilion dv6-3177ee (XW119EA #ABV), BIOS: F.23 support UEFI (GPT partitioning)?

Serial number: {removed privacy}
Product name: HP Pavilion dv6-3177ee
Product no.: XW119EA #ABV
System BIOS: F.23 (Insyde) [diagnostic system (F2) supported]
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 6.1.7601

This BIOS does support UEFI (TPG)?
If the HD is partitioned to TPG, Windows 7 Home Premium can be reinstalled from the created under MBR recovery DVD?
In the case of dual-boot, LINUX support the GPT?
In addition, boot.ini could be tweaked to boot LINUX?

If the HD is partitioned to TPG, Windows 7 Home Premium can be reinstalled from the created under MBR recovery DVD?

HP recovery will erase the entire hard drive and restore it on an MBR disk and all the original scores, so no, it won't work.

I do not know if this bios supports the start of TPG,

  • HP Pavilion DV6 3122TX: updated the BIOS F.29 don't switch HP Pavilion DV6 3122TX Ati graphics card


    I have HP Pavilion DV6 3122TX and recently I was updating my drivers and software from the HP Web site for my laptop. Everything was done smoothly. As I updated my BIOS, I noticed that I was not able to switch between ATI Radeon 5650 and Intel HD Graphics, then I was also shocked that he wasn't showing a charger plugged into icon too. Although the battery was charging but didn't show any icon for it. I am running Windows 7. After a few days, my battery was went wrong and was not in charge. I bought the new battery from HP Store for my laptop, and then after a few days now he is dying too. My computer laptop suddenly stops on about 30% of battery remaining and battery does not charge. I arranged another charger and plugged, but once more. I gave the laptop to the service center local and got NO from them as well. They couldn't find the problem. After a lot of research and reading messages HP, I finally understood that it was the problem with the BIOS Update and Windows 7. So, out of curiosity, I installed Linux RedHat 6 on windows 7 and everything was OK. But I am a graphic designer for Linux is not a good choice for me. I want to just restore my BIOS in its original version of the default BIOS. Please kindly help me to get my original BIOS. I tried everything on my hand. I also ask HP to the original versions of the drivers like BIOS on its Internet site. My laptop is dying. Please, Experts, I need your kind assisstence. Thanks in advance


    Create the key USB HP Diagnostics of material 3-in-1 PC and boot to it.

    If you updated the BIOS from the old version will still be in a folder of your operating system. Use the method I proposed to get it back.

    If you are unable to read the instructions on the web page of Diagnostics of material for the HP PC, then I suggest that you pay someone to do it and create the flash drive for you.

  • Replacing the hard drive on my Pavilion dv6 - 3150ee but the bios is not recognize it.


    I have a HP Pavilion dv6-3150ee. my original hard drive was broken. I bought a western digital 500 GB 5400 Sata 2.

    I installed the hard drive and made the recovery. Everything went well past and ok. When completed recovery operation, the system has restarted to continue the installation of hard drives but I got this message: no boot device insert boot disk and press any key.

    so I went to the bios and tested the memory and the hard drive and all was ok. I tried to get into my bios, advanced options, but it isn't everything. My bios version is F.12.

    I don't know what the problem is, and I will be thanksful for any help.

    N.B: I have my recovery discs and my windows repair disc.

    Thank you.

    The new hard drive sometimes requires to prepare first with utility cd from Cyberlink. Download and save the file. Once the download is complete, place a blank cd in your drive and click on the file to create a boot cd. Start with this cd and wait until you get a green check mark indicates the hard disk is ready. Remove the cd, insert the first disc of recovery and restart the laptop.

  • Pavilion dv6: Code to stop BIOS password?


    Initially, my problem started when I tried to start a virtual machine of Ubuntu using Virtual Box on my PC. I did dozens of times before, but yesterday when I tried to start the virtual machine, I got an error that says that "VT - x is disabled in the BIOS for all modes of the CPU", which apparently means that virtualization is not enabled in the BIOS of my PC.

    Why is this suddenly a problem I do not know (maybe a Windows Update), but when I tried to get into my BIOS by pressing F10 when you start upward, I had to enter a password "Administrator". I have no idea what is it supposed to be, and after failing 3 times, he gave me this code: 59272046

    After having looked up online, I've seen others with the same problem of BIOS that were able to get after providing their stop code in a forum like this.

    So... can anyone help me please?

    Thank you

    Hi @Dawson8879 ,

    Thank you for visiting the Forums HP's Support and welcome. It's a great site for information and questions. I looked in your question about your HP Pavilion Notebook dv6-3032sa and issues with the BIOS. I recommend to restore the default settings of the BIOS withthis documentby selecting the reload the default BIOS settings. This will have the BIOS check the connected equipment. Flashing the BIOS is something I do not recommend it could brick your system and stop all functions.

    Here is a link to options for recovery.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you

  • HP Pavilion dv6-7029wm: BIOS display on an external monitor


    The screen of my laptop has been broken for quite awhile now and I tried to find a way to be able to view the BIOS on an external monitor.

    I tried pressing f2 and f8, f10 or esc on startup and try using f4 to toggle the display without result.

    As a side note, when I press f10 if I try to press keys f later my computer makes a high-pitched beep, I don't know if this means anything but I feel like it is worth noting. I use an external keyboard, so I don't have a fn key, if all that matters.

    Finally, I tried to disconnect the front lcd screen but my attempts to disassemble my laptop in the past have not exactly well and I do not trust myself without ruining things more far.

    What I can do about it, or am I out of luck?

    I'm afraid you're out of luck when it comes to BIOS on external monitor display. The switch of the F4 does that once the computer is started. Same goes for making a recovery system - several have posted asking how to see recovery on external monitor... screens cannot be done.
