Godd morning

I have 2 computers ( exactly the same) one of them works fine ,but the other doesnt boot ,Just Shows " Award boot Block v1.0"
My idea is write a new chip with the content of the one that works fine ( chips are soldered without socket)

I would like to know if it is posssible to flash a BIOS chip with tha data downloaded with Universal bios backup tool
The idea is write in a new chip the data with a Willem programmer
But the problem is :the file created by Univ bios backup toolkit is a .rom file ,and my willem needs a .hex or a .bin file to work with

What can I do? did you haev any experience with this method ?

Thank you so much in advance

Are you sure the chips in question are supported by the Willem? As for the file extension that doesn't matter much. As long as you tell Willem it is a .bin file you should be fine normally. What board is it (make/model)?
