    I greet all,

    is there anyone who still owns a working eMachines E510? I need a backed up original BIOS from this notebook.

    When flashing the BIOS, which I downloaded from the manufacturer's website, I used the flas-hit.exe command with the ALL switch in DOS. This command flashed the BIOS and the logo Acer because the manufacturer uses a universal BIOS file for both the eMachines and Acer models. I don't know to flash back the only BIOS for eMachines from this versatile file.

    (OP)
    I have this file. I don't know how to use it to flash BIOS the eMachines E510. The file contains both BIOS for eMachines and Acer.

    This file contains the BIOS for Aspire 5315, Aspire 5320, Aspire 5715Z, Aspire 5720, Aspire 7320, Aspire 7720, eMachines E510.

    What switch to use with flas-hit.exe to flash the BIOS for eMachines and not for Acer?

    Code:
