    here is a thread detailing Dell bios recovery, basically download the Dell updater, extract the hdr file, rename it if necessary (maybe not), put it on floppy and boot.. (may be a jumper to set I believe, it has been quite a while since I read about it) Is the board bootable at all? you could, if it does, make a dos bootable floppy with an autoexec file running the executable with the command D5000A07 -factory (disables the prompts so there is no need to press ok or (y) for are you sure? prompt) The original bios file (I think you may need hdr file, not bin file) can be extracted using the command line switch D5000A07 -writeromfile, the hdr file would be extracted using D5000A07 -writehdrfile
