Re: [PLUG] Recovering from bad BIOS flash

Hello Adam,

The procedure varies depending on the motherboard.  Be aware that some 
don't have a method to recover from a bad BIOS flash without removing 
the BIOS eeprom and rewriting it with an eeprom writer, or getting a new 
eeprom with the contents already written.

So the question is: what is the motherboard make and model?
