    The new Phoenix tool handles it! it is a phoenix bios packed inside a hdr file! (must be very early Dell stuff), anyways please provide a rw report to be safe and I will mod it for you!
    We just have to figure out the method for flashing back, I had some trouble at first unpacking, it won't build a update floppy on my system, does it write a file with the hdr extension on the floppy? when you go to flash in windows does it write a file with either rom or hdr extension in any of the working, temp or root directories (the size of the bios ~512kb)? (possibly just switch files before the flash process)
    Perhaps someone with disassembly skills can replace the hdr file back into the executable?

    Hi, thanks for the reply, I don't have a floppy on the laptop so will have to figure out how to get a floppy based image.
    Thanks.

    He says to execute it from Windows, but when I do the laptop reboots and nothing happens. Could it be because my BIOS is shadowed and there is no BIOS option to turn this off ?
    Also this Dell laptop does not have BIOS recovery, so forced does not work I'm afraid.

    General-X, it is fascinating to see the speed you work with, once every 2 years & then again 6 months later!

    You seem to be very relaxed!
