    Hi
    I have Optiplex 7010 and the bios chip is bad.
    What I want to do is: download the bios from Dell website and extract the bios, then use the programmer to program to the new chip.

    the problem are: I can not extract bios, not even with dos command "-writehdrfile, -writeromfile or -writebinfile"

    does any one know how to extract this type of bios?

    here is bios link: dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/optiplex-7010?driverId=535DK&fileId=3292971997

    thank you.
