      For Available Support Documentation:

      Contents of this ZIP file:

      • DVD ISO image
      • Readme.txt

      Making a physical DVD 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 DVD from this ISO image, you must use a software utility capable of writing an ISO file to a recordable media such as DVD-R.

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

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

        Smart Update Firmware DVD Release 9.30

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

      The HP USB Key Utility is a Windows application that will allow the user to copy the Firmware DVD contents to a USB memory key.  Users may then run the Smart Update Firmware applications from a USB key instead of from the DVD.  To download the HP USB Key Utility for windows, go to:  www.hp.com/go/foundation.

      • No firmware components are changed in this release. 
      • This issue will only affect users who use the automatic mode of the Firmware DVD.
