|Here's what BIOS v1.32 does: "Improves security of the BIOS flashing process under certain circumstances by adding a stronger flash process verification algorithm."|
Also, nothing is mentioned about using a USB flash drive to update the BIOS. Here are the instructions from the HP/Compaq site:
"Several methods for changing the BIOS version may be chosen. Included in this
package are the following methods:
- Use the DOS utility with a preboot execution environment (PXE) management
application to locally update or restore the system BIOS.
- Use HPQFlash to upgrade the BIOS directly in a Microsoft Windows or Microsoft
Windows Vista environment.
- Create a CD image to upgrade/restore system BIOS."
