    First try recovery
    HDR file with name some like HAW12345.HDR or M1530123.HDR (or maybe cut last character from name to be 7.3 format,even for my laptop only I9400123.HDR works and that is 8.3 format)
    If not working then run
    1530_A12.EXE -writeromfile
    and you get 1530_A12.rom file to write with external programmer.
