    Hello,

    I have an issue while trying to reflash my original .ROM file into my VAIO laptop, when trying to flash using InsydeFlash v5.06 I receive the error: IHSI: Flash write error in SM!! SMI return error code 0x25, when trying using InydeFlash v5.4.4.1 I receive the error: it only supports to flash secure bios on current platform, the image to be updated is not a secure bios!

    When trying Flas**t via DOS I get the error This Rom isnĀ“t correct Error: Rom size 300000 Current Bios size: 800000

    Any help will be appreciated!
    BR, Abed

    Why don't you flash it through WBFLASH?? Just follow the official instructions.

    Thanks Tito for your followup, well, that's because I already flashed a different laptop model bios by mistake, so now the laptop is identified as SVE15128CXS and therefore, when I try the official tool it says that this bios update is not for my module! that's why I need to find a way to force updating/reflashing the original bios.

    What can I do now to do it?
