Hello guys, I have subscribed to this mailing list
looking for some help
about the use of the flashrom tool.
The problem is this:
A friend of mine who has just started using Linux, was testing some tools
and not reading carefully their corresponding manuals, he executed this
command: flashrom -r
and this seems to have erased the BIOS of his PC. This is my guess because
he just told me by phone that not even the video signal was working. His
motherboard is an ASUS P5GC. Is it possible to recover the BIOS back to the
The above command, 'flashrom -r', will not erase a flash chip. Have
your friend either power cycle his machine or remove the mainboard
battery (CMOS reset) with mains disconnected.
Given the fact that the parameter '-p internal' was not used, he was
using an old version of flashrom, version 0.9.3 or older.
Please, I will be looking forward for your comments.
Thanks in advance.
