    Hello.

    I have this old machine Dell Optiplex 745
    and I already have SLIC 2.1 mod

    Downloaded the file but its EXE file.

    My question is :
    1. How can i flash using that EXE bios file?
    Already read tutorial flashing phoenix bios with phlash. But Phlash use BIN file.
    How i change this EXE to BIN?
    2. Tried phlash16 (PH1614.EXE) but it says can't find *.WPH file on C:\ ???
    Please help me how to flash dell bios with right way.
    2. Is there a way to backup my original BIOS before flashing it?
    What application should i use and how is the command/switch for it?

    P.S. : I already have usb flashdrive for booting
    Thank you.

    Regards.
    Radit.
