In which way is having the solution on LQ, regardless of the location within LQ, not sharing with the LQ community?

Sorry if I am a little disappointed that my solution was relegated to off-topic discussions, like current events.
Your solution for flashing the hardware is based on using a portable Windows environment (WinPE), created using Windows software (WAIK). This is not Linux related at all, besides the fact that you want to run Linux on that machine, and therefore doesn't belong in the Linux forums.

Hi,

You have shared the thread throughout LQ via the search engine, similar threads & tags facilities. Thread topic drifted into a Microsoft support topic thus the move to <General>.

Use something like universal extractor to get the bios file out of the executable.
