  2. Rename the xxxxx.wph file to BIOS.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.

  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.
