Flash Dell BIOS with a dead battery and only using a power adapter

Use this at your own risk. I’ve been using an old Dell D630 for my lab work and had to update the BIOS for automated TPM activation. It had a dead battery and I was only using a power adapter. I could not flash the BIOS since the battery was not being detected. See workaround below. Run command line with elevated rights.

D630_A17.exe /forceit

It worked. 🙂
