HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI
HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI Descritpion: This package provides the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI version 18.104.22.168 in
supported models that are running a supported operating system.
UEFI and Custom Imaging
The HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI must be run from a FAT or FAT32 partition
with a partition name of "HP_TOOLS" or "EFI".
This installer will give you the option to install to the HDD or a USB drive.
If you install to the HDD and the HP_TOOLS or EFI partition is not present, the
installer will prompt you to create the partition.
If you install to a USB drive, the installer will rename the partition on the
USB drive to HP_TOOLS.
If you use a custom image, you can create the HP_TOOLS partition manually with
type FAT32 and make the partition name HP_TOOLS.
- The HP_TOOLS partition is not protected and can therefore be deleted.
- Backing up the computer using the Windows® Complete PC and other backup
software does not back up the HP_TOOLS partition.
For these reasons, HP recommends that you do not place additional data on the
HP_TOOLS or EFI partition. Because the partition is not backed up, corruption
or failure of the partition will result in loss of all data on the partition,
plus loss of UEFI functionality.
