System Update was updating the BIOS from Windows XP and the computer lost power. Now it will power on but nothing appears on the screen. Any thoughts?

Can someone please help me extract the WPH file or backup their X60's BIOS so I could use the PHLASH16 utility

here is the ISO provided by IBM:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site. ... MIGR-63145

Where can I find the WPH file (is this the one I need to use with PHLASH?)
