    Thank you for this, very informative. It was also suggested to me that I use this guide here: https://www.win-raid.com/t4175f16-GUIDE-Flash-BIOS-with-CH-A-programmer.html for fixing such issues in the future. Is what you are suggesting of a similar method or is it something with difference purpose?

    The laptop was sent for repair and I am still trying to organize around this issue before I start getting into reading and understanding such technical guides as I admittedly lack the required knowledge for such matters.

    Hello,
    on the beginning of this thread, i noticed about:
    "2.2 - CREATING BOOTABLE PENDRIVE WITH RU"

    Is it possibel, that this - the usage of this tool is ONLY for:
    EFI / UEFI ?????
    Therefore, even ONLY for x64 systems?
    Because, i ma NOT able, to run this tool form USB.

    Is there a way - a tool - to do the same on legacy BIOS ?

    Regards

    Hi,

    No - I don't have a notebook with UEFI support.

    Does that mean, that i can't use this tool ?
