Toshiba Laptop A30 satellite BIOS

By hireland ·
Anybody able to send the image out of working flash from Toshiba A30 ? the file from Toshiba is larger than the SST39VF040 flash has room for.
I do not know what Toshiba is doing and using the supplied program to flash failed 2/3 thru .
Now the client has a brick . I cannot believe they would make such an error so they must be doing some kind of compression(did I get CIH or something) .
I am ready to burn I.C. but cannot create binary image with this stuff from Toshiba

Any help is supremely appreciated

They should be able to provide you with a replacement BIOS Chip with the latest BIOS already burnt to it.
