    Hello,

    Was not sure what got me into today to decide to update BIOS for DELL Studio XPS 8100 from A03 to A05 but I went ahead and did upgrade guess what I think I bricked it :(. I had Win 8 64 bit running and tried to flash. Flash went to 36% and hung. So rebooted. Now I see NO BIOS.

    Please help.

    Thanks
    kris

    Here's the solution:
    Replace the exe file according to your model.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Thank you for responding to my request SOCRATE_MMXII.

    Unfortunately the steps you are recommending are for laptop that has Phoenix BIOS but my system is a Desktop that has AMI BIOS.
