The system provides a function hotkey: Fn+Esc, for enable BIOS Recovery process when system is powered on during BIOS POST. To use this function, it is strongly recommended to have the AC adapter and Battery present. If this function is enabled, the system will force the BIOS to enter a special BIOS block, called Boot Block.

  1. Copy the xxxxx.wph BIOS file into the Crisis folder which is included with the crisis program.
  2. Rename the xxxxx.wph file to BlOS.wph.
  3. Plug in the USB disk.
  4. Launch the wincris.exe program to create a USB Crisis Disk. Click Start to initiate the process.
  5. Select the Quick Format option to format the disk and click Start. Follow the instructions on the screen to create the disk.

To use the Crisis USB key, do the following:

  1. Plug USB storage into USB port.
  2. Press Fn + ESC button then plug in AC power. The Power button flashes orange once.
  3. Press Power button to initiate system CRISIS mode.

When CRISIS is complete, the system auto restarts with a workable BIOS.
