    I need a either A06 or A07 bios .ROM extracted for this computer. I have tried myself to extract with -writeromfile on an acer computer, but I only get "The system to be updated is not a dell system".
    I've tried all bios updates possible (X18, A04, A06, and A07). Edit: I only need a download file for the bios for this computer.

    Sorry, I have no idea how to use Python, so can you please do it for me and send me the decompressed .hdr?

    i havent done it in long time.. im in middle of work.

    seems if you run it and says error leave it open and go to file explorer %temp% theres the folder.. copy and paste in your desktop.

    the . cap (search around for dell .cap recovery) file is the encapsulated bios.. needs decapsuled .. but i think this recovery is EFI aptio typ for dell with .cap not rom.

    optionaly make backup of your bios chips with a usb spi programmer Ch341a and we ca try to fix it. or find a download of a dump for it.
