Good day,

I've a sony vaio laptop, vgn nr21s/s wich comes with a phoenix BIOS, R1150J9.

I want to create a backup of this BIOS, just in case, as SONY haven't released the BIOS, or an update.

I've used the Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit, which has generared a ROM image, which, when looked at in UltraEdit, looks like a BIOS image.

The problem is the Phoenx Flash tool - winphlash - needs some configuration appended to the BIOS file in order to work.

I have access to another Sony BIOS, R0131J9, which has the configuration information on it, but I don't know if the information is specific to an individual BIOS or can be applied to all.

Can anyone shed light on this for me?

Thanking you in anticipation,
