Pavilion A747c BIOS

Hi

We have 2 HP a747c Pavilion PCs. Until tonight both were running the original BIOS release of 3.06. During an upgrade cycle I went to the HP website and pulled down the 3.28 upgrade. I ran the upgrade on machine A & all went fine. I went to machine B which is an EXACT physical copy of machine A and the BIOS did not upgrade and now the machine will not start. HP does not make available the original BIOS on its website and the system wants to recover from a file called HPBIOS.ROM on either a floppy or a CD. I contacted customer support and they were not much help. The MOBO is actually an ASUSTEK Grouper and the BIOS appears to be a rebadged AMI Bios. Can someone who perhaps owns one of these machines email me a copy of the 3.06 original HP Bios so that I can allow recovery of the system?

Thanks
