Hello all

I am new user here just registered yesterday and i am pleased to find a good site like that to help me in my work

since 3 days i am trying to find a way to extract bios file from EXE files like this one

ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/bios/1555_A08.exe


tried with uni extract , 7-zip but i failed , and i would like to know how to do it because sometimes i get laptops that has no data or no power and everything seems to be ok so i suspect a bios problem and try to flash it manually by disassembling the laptop and flash the chip itself on a universal programer

this way works most of the time but i couldn't do it with 3 dell laptops because i couldn't extract the contents of the .exe file

please help me with this matter and show me how to extract it
thanks in advance

tested and works.
use /writeromfile
pay attention is not like older -writeromfile.
1555_A08.exe /writeromfile
After that you have 1555_A08.ROM in same folder.

the file that you need to extract must be 2MB size not 1MB so this probably not it , thank you for your help anyway , any other suggestions would be appreciated
thanks in advance

You can extract the new release, 1555_A11, with /writeromfile parameter.
