HP UEFI System Diagnostics Utility 126.96.36.199
EFI and custom imaging
If you use your own custom image and you want to maintain EFI partition functionality, you must create a FAT32 partition named HP_TOOLS. Failure to do so results in loss of features.
Volume name should be: The volume name is “HP_TOOLS”.
- The EFI partition is not protected and can therefore be deleted.
- Backing up the computer using the Windows Vista Complete PC Backup does not back up the EFI partition.
For these reasons, HP recommends that you do not place additional data on the 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 EFI functionality.
If the EFI application installation does not find a partition named HP_TOOLS, the installation fails and an error message is displayed.
