If its an Ami bios recovery is easy, to recover the boot block you need a floppy with a copy of a working .bin file, rename it AMIBOOT.ROM and dont put anything else on the floppy. Start the PC(you wont see anything because the boot block only retains support for ISA cards when the bios is corrupt, so you'll be blind) and WHEN THE FLOPPY IS RUNNING (unusual but important)insert the disk with amiboot.rom on, in about four or five minutes of apparent inactivity you'll get four beeps.Power off and remove the floppy, restart and press immediately to enter bios, and thats exactly what should happen, you now have a recovered bios which you can set up.
