    Perhaps the laptop has write protection enabled in the BIOS, enter in the BIOS setup utility to be sure.

    the problem is the bios has a password and I don't know it because I bought it from the internet and I tried to contact the old owner and he don't remember it

    execute the exe and check your temp folder:

    temp-folder.jpg






























    Uhm, and don't start the flash process!
