    Sorry for that question (is probably answered already). does /R write 15 banks with the original bios renamed to bios.bak??? Or is restore simply a command that flashes *.bak the same way than /U ?

    To flash 15 banks instead of 14 there is hopfully just one byte needed to change??? NO? from E to F?

    Yes, this version ignore signature. But this version only display a full log with debug message. This hpqflash don't update SLIC to 2.1.

    It was here
    Original rompaq.exe /R with original 68MAD.BIN renamed to 68MAD.BAK (banks 1...14)

    I tried patched rompaq_.exe v.4.75 from sp39427:

    Original 68MAD:
    rompaq_.exe /U (banks 1...14)
    Code:
    The code used to verify the integrity of your BIOS does not match
    what is currently on your system. This could cause parts of the BOIS
    to be skipped when updating leading to unpredictable results including
    failure to load. It very strongly recommended that you not proceed with the update.
    Press
    F10=Continue, ESC=Cancel
    Modded 68MAD:
    rompaq_.exe /U
    Code:
    Error in file content read from disk.
    Please try recreating file or disk.

    Put the BIOS image (and nothing else) on a USB floppy...

    From a powered off state hold down all 4 arrow keys and then power on. Just wait and the floppy will start to read. You can let go once the floppy is spinning.

    Found the 4 arrows easier than Fn + B.
