On the tougbookforum of notebookreview.com i posted a topic about using an external cd-rom on my cf-m34 mk2. It seemed that the bios i had, did not have the option of using the external usb diskdrive.
The original bios of my cf-m34 was V2.02L14 M30
So, i tried to flash my cf-m34 with BIOS v201!11!12. (downgrading from 14 to 11/12). The bios i used was from the official toughbook website....
Everything went alright, and i got to the screen where i had to shut down the laptop and restart with the new bios.
Okay, i did, but then black screen of death.
I bricked my cf-m34.
I forgot to update the EC before flashing the bios.
Do you folks now any trick to repair my toughbook ? I read that some phoenix bios versions have an option to boot from disk and repair the bios... Any other options except buying a new motherboard ?
I spoke about my problem on the other forum : http://forum.notebookreview.com/panason ... ntjob.html
