I need the BIOS in .bin format for HP Envy 17 1181nr

HP Envy 17 1181nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good afternoon,

 

I made a mistake by changing the bios of my notebook. I can not recover using the HP partition and can't boot with a pendriver . ( The computer turns on but it remains at a black screen and does not pass the bios post) . I need BIOS in .bin format for HP Envy 17 1181nr to be able to rewrite directly to the eeprom .

 

Does someone there have it? I could not find anywhere and when I tried to extract the exe  to get a .bin on the HP website , the bios file there is a totally different size that I need ( exact 4mb ) . Someone have the .bin or know where I can find ?

Have to tried using 7-Zip to unpack the self-extracting archive that HP supplies?

 

Asking, because I've read that ONLY 7-Zip has the ability to extract the components properly.

 

I used it on a driver softpack and it worked great.

 

You can get it here:  http://www.7-zip.org/

 

Good Luck

I did not know about 7-Zip . I had tried with WinRar . Still , I tried with 7-Zip here now and the file size is the same. The * .bin has more than 4mb :( Thank you for your help anyway ! Oh, and sorry for my bad english. I'm from Brazil and we don't have HP support here practically . I'm desperate.
