Ok. If you another, same bios system:

Pull the bad bios, put a pull string of dental floss to not interfere with
connections and boot from the good bios. Boot to flasher. Pull the good
bios while the system is running but idle, and plugin the bad one and
flash. Good idea to wear vinyl or latex gloves in the insertion to limit
conducting material. The bios is not being used but does have power.
