For Available Support Documentation:

Contents of this ZIP file:

  • CD ISO image
  • Readme.txt

Making a physical CD from an ISO image file
Download the file to a temporary directory and extract the ISO image to that directory.

In order to create a CD from this ISO image, you must use a software utility capable of writing an ISO file to a recordable media such as CD-R.

    Note: Simply copying the ISO file to a CD-R will NOT result in a usable CD. HP recommends you run MD5 Checksum on the Zip file and/or ISO image prior to burning the CD. HP also recommends that you turn the verify feature "ON".

CD labeling
For reference purposes, please label your resulting CD as follows:

    Firmware Maintenance CD Release 8.50

Copying the ISO Image file to the HP USB Key Utility For Windows
