Patched BIOS sent.

Instructions:

Once you create the system diskette with the file downloaded from HP, just replace the QHW1001.BIN file with the one I sent you.

Note: I don't know whether HP's flash utility is designed to work with a particular file checksum. The patched file carries a different one, so there's really no guarantee it'll flash. It's up to you to experiment with it.
