    The first two links aren't working because, so far as I can tell, the NBR software truncated the urls.

    From what I can reconstruct, I believe the full url for the second link is: http://rapidshare.com/files/15674471...6.5.4.rar.html

    For the second, I believe the link is: http://rapidshare.com/files/14946637...ock_Jumper.pdf

    (n.b., I found 'em on this digital life forum thread: http://forums.mydigitallife.info/sho...49&postcount=1)

    more will be needed if it takes a key combination to invoke the bios recover option. which no one seems to have. because the ones listed do not work for a np9262. that's for sure.

    Default Re: in case you kill your phoenix bios: bios recovery methods

    In step3 where it says "Rename your BIOS file to bios.wph and copy it to your: Flopy, USB Flopy"
    What file should i rename to bios.wph.
    First of all where is my BIOS file?? what is it named as? Is it located in 86TU0808.zip
    and finally is the version compatible with the one listed in method1??
    If possible i am going to try it out in that order so I would be glad if the how to could be re-written
    or modified so that nothing is left out and is complete in itself. That would be a great favour.
    Can some one help this poor guy out ?? :'(
    I just dont want to do it wrong agian. Can some one tell me please???
    I am a bit too hesitant. I absolutely want to be sure......
    For gamming - Sager NP8660 with P8600, 9800m GT, 320gb 5400rpm hdd, 4gb ram, 1680x1050 glossy screen.

    For surfing - Acer tm4020 (3yrs old) and still in perfect working condition. Not a single problem till now!

    Hello!

    After long 2 nights I have finally recovered my HP Pavilion DV6449us. And I want to share how I did that.

    Things you need:
    1. Floppy disc.
    2. USB Floppy drive.
    3. Phoenix Recovery Disc creator (Download here, Mirror1, Mirror2).
    4. Bios update file (From official web site HP Support & Drivers).


    When you got all of mentioned:
    1. Unrar Phoenix Recovery Disc creator (It contains CRISDISK (folder) Autoexec.bat and PHLASH16.TXT).
    2. Run ...\Phoenix Recovery\CRISDISK\wincris.exe.
    3. Select Create Minidos Crisis Disc.
    4. Format it and it will copy 3 files to your new boot floppy (bios.wph, minidos.sys, phlash16.exe).
    5. Now you need to replace bios.wph (on floppy) with yours bios file. Extract spxxxxx.exe (Bios update) which you downloaded from official web site with winrar (right click on it and "Extract to...").
    6. There you will find *.wph/bios.wph file. Copy it to floppy and replace old one. Its name must be bios.wph. Or it wont boot.
    7. After that in archive "Phoenix Recovery Disc creator" is file autoexec.bat. You can modify it as you wish to add extra parameters for flashing process. Parrameters are listed in file PHLASH16.TXT in "Phoenix Recovery Disc creator" archive. Or you can leave it as it is.


    Now you have boot floppy with phlash 1.6.5.4 and your bios file.

    1. Take out battery.
    2. Unplug power cable.
    3. Plug in floppy drive.
    4. Insert floppy disc.
    5. Now hold Win+B/FN+B keys and insert power cable and push power button while holding down Win+B/FN+B keys.
    6. After 3 sec let go buttons.


    Floppy drive should start working. Not less then 30sec. It indicates that flashing has begun. Or if your bios makes sound than you can observe flashing by sound.
    Give it time to flash, better to wait ~10min.

    Good luck! Hope it helps.
