    Hi

    (i'm not english speaker)
    How do I identify the type (phoenix/dell/award) of bios contained in this file:
    ftp.euro.dell.com/FOLDER00270947M/1/E6400A32.exe
    This file is compatible with cbrom command?

    thank for your help, it's very nice to discovert "bios world"!

    What do you mean (I'm beginner)? Is it a stuff about OEM product key (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS#SLIC)?

    Indeed, I tried this:
    CBROM215.EXE E6400A32.exe /D
    and it did work very well:
    CBROM V2.15 (C)Award Software 2001 All Rights Reserved.
