HP Business Desktop BIOS
HP BIOS Philosophy
While many computers contain the same processor, chipset, operating systems, and software choices, the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is one critical computer component that varies significantly in quality and features between competing vendors. The BIOS is the set of routines typically stored in read-only memory that enable a computer to load the operating system and communicate with the various devices in the computer, such as storage drives, keyboard, monitor, printer, and communications ports.
The HP BIOS is industry-standard compatible. Industry standards and de facto standards define most of the interfaces and components that comprise the HP BIOS design. The HP BIOS development, though, has always added value to the HP Business Desktop computer products. HP has a dedicated team of development and test resources focused on the BIOS as a tool to help resolve real-world customer problems. While industry-standard resolutions are always considered first when addressing a problem, many new technologies and customer circumstances are not easily addressed by current standards. In these situations, HP BIOS may contain value-add features and components that lack standardization. When appropriate, HP works within the industry and with partners to create standards for new and evolving BIOS functionality.
One of the most critical benefits to customers is that HP can quickly enhance or modify BIOS designs to meet critical customer requirements, unique configurations, and deployment schedules. By maintaining HP’s own BIOS code, it can eliminate the delays and costs associated with relying on a third-party vendor to make changes. HP’s BIOS code has been maintained internally since the original Compaq PC - in fact, Compaq invented the first “clone PC” and IBM PC-compatible BIOS.
