HP BIOS application selected is corrupt or missing
This document pertains to HP PCs with the HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) beginning in late 2008.
During the startup process, the system performs a checksum test of the BIOS. If the checksum is incorrect, the BIOS is assumed to be corrupt and the system will install a hidden copy of the BIOS to correct the problem, and the startup process continues.
The following message will be displayed for 15 seconds before the computer automatically reboots. You have the option of pressing
Enter to proceed without waiting 15 seconds.
The CMOS checksum is invalid.
The CMOS will be reset to the default configuration and will be rebooted.
Please check your BIOS Setup options to see if they changed.
CMOS Reset (502)
ENTER - Reboot the system
After the computer starts, a second message is displayed to indicate that the BIOS has been reset.
This is an informational message and no additional action is required.
However, if this error occurs more than once, there may be an issue with the installed version of the BIOS, and you should install an updated BIOS.
