    Hello, apologies if this is answered in another thread but I've searched around and wasn't able to find information on my specific machine and motherboard. I'd like some insight into the steps I need to take to reprogram my BIOS bricked 2017 Razer Blade 14". The exact model number is RZ09-01953E, Motherboard:Betty R6_MB FCS V4.0.

    I ordered a CH341a BIOS programmer and I'm attempting to re-flash my BIOS chips using that and a test clip. For software I've found ASProgrammer (https://github.com/nofeletru/UsbAsp-flash/releases/) which seems to work well and supports all of the chips I might need to program. I am having trouble reading three of the four chips. I've located the necessary files here (https://vinafix.com/threads/razer-rz09-0195-beffy-r6_mb-fcs-v4-0.34713/) and they all seem to match the chips on my board. I can't find the files anywhere for free so it looks like I'll have to pay for them at that link. I'm aware that this whole thing would be much easier in Linux than in Windows but I'm having trouble booting a live cd on my Mac so all I can work with right now is Windows or MacOS.

    Using the CH341a programmer I am only able to read the MX25L6406E chip located at U50-U51. There are huge areas of missing information on that chip so I definitely need to reprogram that. However I can't read any of the other chips. I think the other 3 are all 1.8v so I've ordered a 1.8v adapter to hopefully access those.

    Basically my question is am I doing this right? Are these the right files for my motherboard and is the missing 1.8v adapter the reason I can't read those other chips? My laptop is effectively useless at this point so I don't have much to lose but I just want to make sure I don't damage anything unnecessarily. I'll attach pictures of the specific chips on my board. Any help is GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
