You'll have to find a board with socketed BIOS in which you can enter
your empty/dead ROM chip and flash the vendor BIOS from the web onto it.

Alternatively, you can use an external ROM programmer if you have one,
or buy a replacement chip _with_ the original BIOS on it from shops like
e.g. http://bios-chip.de/, or others.
