Hello,

I'm not sure that I completely understood your situation, nevertheless, if your BIOS chip is in working condition, you can try once more to use the following procedure:

1. Do a bootblock recovery to flash the proper rom.

2. If you have access to another machine, format a USB stick to FAT32.

3. Run AW15A05.EXE /writehdrfile. (Or whatever version you used BEFORE you bricked, as usually the bootblock isn't updated, but with some BIOS updates, it can be, so your more safe to use the same version you had on the machine BEFORE it bricked from improper flash.)

4. Now take this HDR file and rename it to AAP10.hdr. Put it on the root of the USB.

5. Now make a copy of this file and rename it AMIBOOT.ROM (all caps) so now there's 2 files on the USB key, AMIBOOT.ROM and AAP10.hdr. (Unconfirmed if uses old AMIBOOT.ROM or the new filename I found.. New aptio platform we haven't really played with yet, so lets use both..)

6. Now here's the fun part, you need the technical guide from dell and disconnect your MAIN battery, not the CMOS battery.. And unplug the PSU..

7. Now, insert your USB stick, hold down END key, plug PSU back in with battery removed.

8. It should turn on and after 5-10 mins, you should see USB activity.. Wait the FULL 10 mins. (Or until it shuts off on its own). Some have reported it took 2 mins when we were testing.

9. After this, try to shut it down using POWER if it didn't on its own, but it should. Then turn it back on.. You should be back on your system.

You don't need to flash again after, as this recovery will flash the complete ROM.. And don't' forget to reconnect your battery..


However, this time add in your usb the .sys file generated when you execute the command "writetohdr" in the command prompt. Moreover, put the executable e.g. AW15A05.exe in the usb as well, and copy this file (AW15A05.exe) and rename it to BOOT_IMG.rcv.

To summarize in your usb you should have:
1. AAP10.hdr
2. AMIBOOT.ROM
3. xxxx.sys (I don't remember the name of the output file)
4. The executable e.g AW15A10.exe
5. BOOT_IMG.rcv

And then plug the usb, press the end key and plug the psu cable (as you did before). I tried this and it worked. Let me know.

Cheers



I could not get the sys file.
I did without it and it did not work, the led of my flash drive does not show reading




sorry for the translation, because I'm brazilian and I'm using google translator

Sorry I am asking, I don't know your background.

Let me know.

Hi

yes i removed the battery cable


with your files was 10 min and did not work, the pendrive not the sign of life




if I take the dell hdr file and do not change the name, it does the process in 2 min and hangs up on power up the same thing.

Yes, I tried to record the newest bios of the dell site by the label but it didn't work. just lights the keyboard and restarts.

I returned the backup that made and returned to this original. restart 3 times and 7 beeps

So yes, it can be enabled  Send me a dump of your BIOS region via FPT - Check BIOS main page and see if ME FW version is shown, if not then download HWINFO64 and on the large window on left side, expand motherboard and find ME area, inside that get the ME Firmware version.  Once you have that, go to this thread and in the section "C" download the matching ME System Tools Package (ie if ME FW version = 10.x get V10 package, if 9.0-9.1 get V9.1 package, if 9.5 or above get V9.5 package etc)
https://www.win-raid.com/t596f39-Intel-M...Tools.html

Once downloaded, inside you will find Flash Programming Tool folder, and inside that a Windows or Win/Win32 folder.  Select that Win folder, hold shift and press right click, choose open command window here (Not power shell).  At the command prompt type the following command and send me the created file to modify >> FPTw.exe -bios -d biosreg.bin

If you are stuck on Win10 and cannot easily get command prompt, and method I mentioned above does not work for you, here is some links that should help
Or, copy all contents from the Flash Programming Tool \ DOS folder to the root of a USB Bootable disk and do the dump from DOS (FPT.exe -bios -d biosreg.bin)
