    create crisis disk from xp only. also the phlash16 file u have might be wrong one.
    http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Advent-Roma-2000-ECS-I50IL1

    it has BB.BIn in bios so bootblock recovery method for phoenix new style should work.
    bios.wph

    i have 2 versions here to try.. replace the bios.wph with yours

    get usb spi programmer
    desolder chip (to use spi programmer) make backup.bin and compare to the bios.rom dloaded. then reprogram once verified.

    some usb brands dont work . i find sandisk cruzer works fine for me.

    try fn x of fn f fn u

    create disk 2 times overwriting itself .. ive read it needs it done a second time without closing the crisdisk tool unplug and replug then reformat with tool still open.
