HOW TO FLASH MODIFIED OR ORIGINAL BIOS (PHOENIX)
#1
Lightbulb 
Hi All ,

I thought about writing this thread as i see there are alot of problems for members with flashing their own original PHOENIX bioses or the Modified bioses in this section .
The process is very easy , just follow these steps :-

1 ) You`d better flash from dos using a bootable usb drive .......... you should have any bootable USB or floppy .
2 ) Download the HP tool which will make your floppy or USB bootable & the DOS98 files from this link :

3 ) Create the Bootable USB or FLOPPY using the tool with options in this pic :-

4 ) Copy the BIOS.WPH ( original or modified ) to the USB drive and copy the PHLASH16.EXE as well ( provided in the previous link with the HP tool ) .

5 ) Boot from the USB drive and write this command after it boots :-

PHLASH16 /S /X /FORCE
then press ENTER .

The bios will be flashed and don`t interrupt this process in any way as it will make your bios bricked .

Thank you

Thanks for providing the info, just need to find a suitable BIOS mod now or even better learn how to do my own!

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

Sounds like it's really bricked.. When that happens, it's probably not recoverable. Best idea is a new Mobo,

If your going to update a bios from windows, it needs to be with all programs closed including antivirus and then shut down as many user run services as you can to lessen your chance of bricking. Otherwise Bios flashing is best done from Dos if your machine can do that. Not all can anymore without third party software

Thank you

I've done exactly what you said here but when I press enter, all that happens is I get a list of command options for Phlash16, I press enter a few times to scroll through the commands and then return to C: again.

Please help.UndecidedHuh
