    Once the computer is booted, would it be possible to pop the bios chip out? I don't think it would, but I'm not sure. If possible, then I could pop another chip (with a bad flash) in and reflash it from windows. Probably not possible, but just asking..............

    Thanks so much. I'll give this a try on my next day off. Completely borked my bios trying to use hex editor to mod bios date. Won't even power up the processor fan. Edit- +1
