I just want to say I am SO glad that the file from the original post had an attachment. My BIOS (Mini 9) was giving a problem, after a crash. While I still could, I grabbed a file from Dell's Support page.

I checked/compared & altered some of the settings of the .ini/configuration/settings file, & that really helped me to reflash the BIOS.

The drive seems to be beyond repair, but the BIOS appears to be fine. (I installed a new SSD & all seems to be well....)

So.... Many thanks!
