Question about Computers & Internet
I have a used evo n800v. I can only boot HD's smaller than 8gb. These were originally shipped with 20 to 60gb HD. The bios settings are VERY limited and there is nothing to change to correct this. I have cleared cmos and flashed the latest bios version but still can't boot larger HD. Thanks for any ideas and help.
This is a known issue at HP, you should download and install the 68P4M ROM which will solve this:
- Fixes issue where system serial number was lost after upgrade to the new BIOS.
- Fixes variation in the noise of the fan when in motion.
- Fixes error where L1 cache shows only 16KB instead of 20KB in F10 Setup.
- Fixes error where FDISK could only see 8GB of 40GB and 60GB in the Multibay Hard Drive.
