My Vostro 1520 (P8700 C2D) originally came with BIOS A02. This BIOS version has known problems with VT, so I had to upgrade to A05. During the upgrade, the notebook crashed. Needless to say, it won't boot anymore.
The simple question is: is there a way to access the BIOS boot block to recover the bad flash with a crisis disk? I know that the MINI and the ALIENWARE models have this feature, but I can't seem to find anything about it in the Vostro machines.
Any help will be much appreciated.
PS: Dell's solution is to change the motherboard, but it will take several days, as the board isn't available in my country :(
