SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Former Autonomy Chief Executive Mike Lynch asked Hewlett-Packard Co's (HPQ.N) board of directors for specific details about the accounting allegations which led the company to take an $8.8 billion write-down last week.

In an open letter to HP's board on Tuesday, Lynch also asked for the interim report and other documents that HP provided to the SEC.
