I have one posted here. Not sure if the purchasing process works on the site yet. You can contact me if you want it. The price does not include shipping fees.

What ROM are we talking about here? I thought you meant the ROM chip on the PCB?

Sorry but this has gone way over my head lol..
I'm assuming the drive needs to fire up to read the ROM file?
If so, I cant do that as the drive is not readable by the OS.

What tools do you have?
Usually you can read the ROM only from the PCB without being attached to the HDA.
