I really messed up the BIOS update of my new Laptop, and now I´m wondering if it´s possible to destroy the motherboard in the process ?
The thing is, I´m sure I flashed the wrong BIOS, not a wrong version, but it seems I used the BIOS.bin of a different Board....

I picked my model, downloaded the new BIOS, flashed it with an usb stick, and when it was done the Laptop just stopped working.
So i started my PC, took a look at the manufacturers page again, and came up with a different filename......

I have no clue how it happend, but it did.

So, did I kill my board with this, or just the BIOS chip ?

I bought the laptop like 6 weeks ago.... it would really suck if I shot my own board and dont even get a guarantee replacement since I f***ed it up :((
