Thin Client Bios

I use ACP Thin Client software   www.acpthinclient.com (a thin client managing software), and they sell a NTA 6020 series terminal for use with their system.  I purchased a NTA 6020 terminal from devon IT in hopes to save a few $.  Apparently ACP loads some custom bios to enable the system to be compatable with their software.  Is there a way to extract the bios and load it on another machine?

It is highly unlikely that you would be able to do such a thing.  System BIOS are stored on a ROM chip on the motherboard that are usually soldered on.  Copying the bios would mean that you would have to read from that chip, which to my knowledge is not possible.  Secondly, the bios for each board would be different.  Flashing one boards BIOS with another boards BIOS usually renders it useless.  You're opening up a can of worms that's going to get you nowhere.

I have learned a little more since I posted this.  The systems are identical.  The  gigabyte motherboards are exactly the same.  The sytem bios is only one revision apart, and I don't think that is the difference.  I think it is a network rom loaded on to the realtek on board network card that is different.  I just need to figure out a way to get the rom off the first system on to the second.

Yes, you will still need to update the motherboard bios.  As far as network roms, i saw on their site some modules you might have to load.  Try updating the mb first though and let us know what happens.
