    I am trying th backup the BIOS from my VGN-FZ455E usinf Pflash and WinPflash, but I can't save the Backup. Also, I can't find the BIOS file on Sony site.

    Any Ideas how can I get the Bios File to ask for a mod? :confused::confused::confused::confused:

    Thanks

    It can be modded fine (most of the time)..it cannot be reflashed. The platform data is not there for the flasher..If you have an EEPROM programmer, it may be possible..

    When the bios is flashed to EEPROM, the platform data is not written, it is for flasher only..Since it is not written, it cannot be part of the backup...right??

    How would that play for someone like me who has bricked their Sony (VGN-FE890) laptop with a Phoenix bios? I cannot get any of the recovery methods working.

    Using the WPH, is it possible to reprogram the bios chip?

    EDIT: Nevermind I saw you answer this 911 thanks.
