    I have yet to extract the rom/hdr files from any dell bios exe using -writeromfile or -writehdrfile. The command always returns an "invalid parameter" msg. Can anyone explain this??

    The exe I'm currently attempting to extract is here:

    http://support.dell.com/support/dow...typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&fileid=295867

    If anyone can successfully extract from this exe using a tool or command, please enlighten me.

    Did you ever get an answer? I'm working on an Optiplex 740 which seems to have a similar setup.

    the latest bios from dell is protected, they not allow user to modified the bios, damn!

    Hope someone can figure it out and release a software which can extract the file!
