. My intel mobo can be corrupted with a bad bios update and it will recover if I have the alternate methods.
I messed up on updating the firmware on my samsung dvdr....but redid it successfully, using the win app.
not all products are the same, and all SHOULD have such fail safe ways to restore...there is no technical reason or law, that if a bios is corrupted and unusable, that it can't be rectified, without buying a bios chip. Such measures are only used by companies that don't have their act together.
