Steps for BIOS Recovery by Crisis Disk
Before doing this, prepare a Crisis Disk (refer to the "Steps for Creating the Crisis Disk in Windows XP/Vista" section below) and keep it ready in hand.
Follow these steps for BIOS recovery:
- Power off the system.
- Connect a removable USB storage device containing the Crisis Disk to a USB port connected to the BIOS flash failed system.
- Under power-off state, press and hold Fn+Esc and then press the power button. The system should be powered on with the Crisis BIOS Recovery process.
- BIOS Boot Block starts to restore the BIOS code from the Crisis Disk to BIOS ROM on the failed system.
- After the crisis flashing process is finished, the system will restart.
After the Crisis Recovery process is finished, the system should have a successful and workable BIOS after power on. The user can then update the latest BIOS version for this system using the regular BIOS flashing process.
