ok. And how do I mod the BIOS?
I searched in the BIOS Mods website and didn't find a mod for my laptop.
Do I just need to request one?
In my guide it's already mentioned to contact the bios-mod site.
nvm, someone from the administration team modded one of the BIOS versions this laptop had
and it comes as a exe like the original flasher

So, I am flashing Windows PE on a USB drive and going to try to flash that BIOS like I did with the official versions
Okay.
Well, it bricked the laptop...
I spent the last 2 hours trying to fix it and no luck.

Is the only way to fix it is to buy a BIOS flasher?
Yes, you need to re-program the BIOS using correct tools.

Alright, I finally got a bit of time to dig in this laptop to find the BIOS chip and I think that I found it.
I found a chip labeled "A25L0100-UF" and after checking its data sheet, it looks like that its a serial flash memory chip.
After searching on Google, I found a couple of forums that mentioned it as the BIOS chip of an HP Pavilion G6.

Can you confirm that its really it and maybe recommend a flasher for it?

Here's its data sheet: http://www.amictechnology.com/datasheets/A25L020.pdf

I'll have to check. Also, what was your WiFi Card? As there has been a great progress with Intel WiFi.

I’ll still need the programmer, because as I said before, that BIOS update I tried bricked it...

And it wasn’t an Intel card. It was a Broadcom card that as you said, doesn’t have MacOS support.

Either way, the new one I bought has MacOS support and it’s better than the old one anyways.

1. My BIOS is bricked, so I need a programmer. Can you please check that chip I sent you before to verify that it is the BIOS chip and recommend a programmer that will work on it?
2. I have a better Broadcom card already (as I said a couple months ago) that does support MacOS. I don't need the old one anymore. No reason to make it work.

No good idea, maybe you can contact the seller.

Sounds good.

So I ordered it.
