    Hey guys, I'm having some issues with my battery showing up (2 of them) and I wanted to try flashing the bios as a last ditch effort to resolve it. Anyway.. I am able to put 9911 (unmodified) on with no problem. However I am unable to flash to 9930 (downloaded from the website) either in windows or from a usb boot stick. I've tried combinations of switches but all I get is this bios update is not compatible with the machine. I must be missing something. Any recommendations besides replacing the motherboard?
