Ok, I think I'm well and truly hosed. I suspect that BIOS write protect was turned on, and Windows 7 didn't check that. So the BIOS was happily erased, but not reprogrammed. It is completely my fault, I should've checked for that.
I found that this model has a BIOS chip SOP-8 1 MB EEPROM (or so), a G266-25, somewhat near the wireless under some plastic.
What kind of burner is recommended? I'm looking at a SOFI SP8-A USB high speed reader/burner with an additional SOP-8 clamp adapter to read/burn the chip. It'll take on the order of a month to get here. Before I order, does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?
