@lost_n_bios, here's a backup of the bios currently on the chip, as read from the programmer:

I'll wait for your ok before going onto step 3 in the guide.

No, this is bad dump, incorrect size. Please be sure you pick your correct BIOS size (8MB), it's at middle right side next to "25 SPI Flash"
Choose that and make new dump then send to me

That's good, corrupted BIOS due to what happened, but correct BIOS dump

It's missing first two volumes, and a padding file in there too, along with both/all NVRAM, so I cannot recover your board specific details from this, we'll have to gather from stickers on the board and case and recreate some too. But wait on this, I may still be able to find and dig out via hex,

Can you find your MAC address in logs, or any emails (view source) you've sent before this happened?

I can send you stock BIOS fixed, that will be bootable for now, if you want, but all details will be missing so LAN Ethernet may not work and windows may not be activated.

how do we get the LAN ethernet to work and get windows activated again?

unfortunately I doubt I'll be able to find my MAC address.

Check router log for your MAC address. This only applies to Ethernet, wireless would have it's own stored on chip usually, so if you used wireless LAN in this system that will probably be OK. Otherwise, all this, especially LAN MAC ID is always on stickers on the board or inside the casing etc.

Windows activation will be OK too once we fix the serial, UUID and all that. Zip up images for me of all stickers on the back of the system, all stickers on the board itself, and be sure to check side of 24 pin, top/bottom sides of PCI/PCIE slots and all around the board too. Also check inside casing as there might be stickers there too (if this is laptop, I only mean inside the bottom of the case you removed to redo BIOS. Also if this is laptop forget what I mentioned about the PCI/PCIE slots Big Grin Only check on the board itself everywhere, on and around Memory slots, and remove memory in case stickers under there too.

I have located info that is likely your serial, and possibly LAN, but I need to confirm with stickers and need those too in order to correctly format and put back into a usable BIOS.

Here is stock BIOS fixed for now, so you can at least have the system running again. If this fails, then ME FW is also corrupt, and I'll fix that for you once you mention it's failing. Didn't do now because it looked OK

here's a link for the photos of all the stickers and stuff I saw on the rear of the laptop, the bottom panel I removed, on the motherboard, etc.:
