need original bios for touchsmart IQ524

HP Recommended
touchsmart iq524
Microsoft Windows Vista

I made the mistake of upgrading my bios to the most recent version.  The new bios dont have any of the advanced options of the original. I want to reflash the original version but I cant find anywhere to download a copy.  Hp support is the worst so I cant even get to the downloads page for the IQ524.

I have tried entering my serial number, product number and model number but none of them worked.

if someone could provide a link to download a copy of the original bios, that would be awesome. 

current bios - revision 5.07

original bios - 5.02 (im pretty sure but I could be wrong)

  4. Select Yes to confirm.
  5. Press F10 to save changes and exit.
  6. Select Yes to confirm.
  7. The computer restarts using the default settings.
