BIOS is DEAD Intel S5520HC , no way to recover it

Hey friends

i tried to recover the bios of my Intel S5520HCR system cuz the APTIO Flash tool has destroyed the boot block NBC flash ... and more by using the /gan command

I am able to boot into the EFI Shell by creating an usb device according to this BIOS recovery guide but it doesnt really work

My system stuck at this screen and nothing will happen

The system will power off after a few minutes but there is nothing on the screen during this time

And the LEDs

Need help cuz i dont want to buy a new motherboard

USB stick has to be fat32 formated. Smaller sticks work better.

Make sure the recovery files are in the root directory,

edit the startup.nsh so that the runs the XXXRec.cap

and last, use the same rec.cap as the BIOS you wiped out.

Unplug any other HDDs or fob drives (the recovery needs to be FS0: to FS3: as i recall.

Go into the BIOS and choose Exit > Load Default Values (or press F9). Power off, pull the plug from the wall for 20 seconds, then boot up and see if the EFI map shows the correct mapping now.

Try a remap from the shell to see if your USB stick shows up.

shell> map -r

it doesnt work

im not able to use any kind of usb devices during this EFI screen

i can reboot my system at the POST screen but not at the EFI Shell screen --> EFI Shell gets stuck again

There are 15 Intel S5520HC Systems with a dead BIOS at the moment and i got the same problem on all of them but the USB devices work on other computers
