Definitely not the usual issue.
Laptop arrived with low battery prompt at boot, short charge time, drained quickly.
Replaced battery with part # specific genuine replacement (10.8V 47Wh 4200mAh 6-cell 593553-001)
New battery installed, charged, works perfectly.
After 2nd boot the laptop freezes a few seconds over POST, at HP splash screen. Every boot afterwards freezes the same.
Installed old, bad battery, laptop boots without issue. Repeated boots with old battery have no issues.
Installed new battery, after 2 boots it freezes after POST again.
Installed old battery, disabled battery drivers in Device Manager.
Installed new battery, still freezing at POST.
I'm stumped. Should I reset BIOS?
