    toshiba's BIOS file is in the format of .com

    Unfortunately the 7z/winrar/universal extractor are all not be able to open the file.

    Running an executable BIOS update in Sandboxie also works many times.
    It will let you Copy the files that get created in a temp folder (inside the sandbox folder) by the installer to any location you want so the BIOS can be modified.

    example dell bios called: dell.exe ( this is bios)
    put it to D driver and use this command: "D:\dell.exe -writeromfile"
    you will get dell.rom file ( it is about 2mb),
