    You will likely have to contact Dell or 3rd party BIOS recovery place. From what I have seen, the 1520 and 1720 do not have to "Boot Fail Recovery" enabled in the existing BIOS'es.

    this is a shame,

    but this is also why Dell, and every other manufacturer, suggests always plugging in the power adapter before doing any update to the BIOS...
