    Hi, wonder if you could help Yen or anyone, I know the slic table mod has already been done for the DIMENSION E521, my question is this, imagine the bios on board is wiped completely, OK, so we remove the bios chip and hope dell have a 512kb binary, we download from their site DME521-010110.exe, we try to extract rom or hdr file and NO good in windows or pure dos, in windows just error(it must check to see if dell machine but delll machine is dead! this other pc not dell), in pure dos we get program to run (i.e. dme521-010110 -writehdrfile), but it takes us to dos screen command line app MFLASH (very strange), we try to execute mflash.exe command and reports illegal command. Anyhow could you tell me how to parse the 512kb bios rom/binary from the dell executable, I have never had this problem before using writeromfile or writehdrfile, PLease help
