Follow the steps below:
1.Power Off failed system.
2.Attach a USB floppy drive to the failed system.
3.Insert the Crisis Disk in to the USB floppy drive attached to the BIOS flash failed system.
4.In the power-off state, press and hold Fn+Esc then press the Power button.
The system powers on and the Crisis BIOS Recovery process begins.
BIOS Boot Block begins restoring the BIOS code from the Crisis floppy disk to BIOS ROM on the failed
When the Crisis flash process is finished, the system restarts with a workable BIOS.
5.Update to the latest version BIOS for the system using the regular BIOS flashing process.
