Morning All,

If you have Patrick Farrell's initrd witch works with the HP DC7700
machines and they are painfully slow to image or even load the RAM disk
then the fix is below. I think the slowness is due to the VPRO technology.

Anyway, just flash your BIOS to a later version. I used v2.09 from the HP
site and the machine now really cranks.

I do get a Management Engine error in the POST, but i thing this is just
another BIOS upgrade that I am yet to investigate.
