What tool is used by HP Client Manager to modify supported HP Hardware bios?
The 'BiosConfigUtility.exe' tool is called by the software to determine and configure bios.
- To get the current configuration, the following command line can be executed: BiosConfigUtility.exe /getconfig:config.txt
- The resulting config.txt file will be stored in the directory where the BiosConfigUtility is executed.
