    Hi

    Im having real issues trying to locate the original bios for a Advent 5421 laptop.
    Heres my situation.
    I wish to flash this laptop with a updated bios which enables auto wifi on boot up instead of having to continually switch wifi on using the FN + F10 keys afer much searching I located this updated bios and Im ready to go.
    However I thought it would be sensible to have a original bios backup just in case !

    However tracking this down is proving to be almost impossible Ive tried Gericom and Uniwell the original manufacturers and they both appear to have removed the bios files from download ? ( cant think why ? )
    Obviously the techguys site or whatever it now is called is a no go ( no surprise ? )
    alas I understand that it is not actually possible to make yor own back up of this particular phoenix bios so I am stuck and dont really want to risk the updated flash without being able to have a back up bios in case of failure !
    Can anybody suggest some help?
    regards
