    I am definitely a newbie at all of this and I don't understand how to dump my Phoenix BIOS ROM to a .wph or .rom file. When I install WinPhlash, I am only able to back my current BIOS up to a .bak file which I can do nothing with. I have Phoenix BIOS Editor Pro installed and can't open my BIOS and edit them because I have no idea how to make a valid image of them to open with BIOS Editor. I'm sure that this isn't the first time this question has been asked but I've searched all over google and these forums and can't find a solution so can someone please help? I'll help you out with what I can if you can help me. Thanks so much for who replies

    just rename the .bak to .rom.... for example bios.bak -> bios.rom
    I just learned this today ;-)

    Thanks

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME!!!! I had already tried this though and I just tried it again and Phoenix BIOS editor still won't open it. It gives me an error saying, "Unable to handle "THE FILE I CHANGED TO .ROM"/ Invalid Procedure call or argument. Should I use a different BIOS editor?
