Another approach is to use an external SPI programmer:
http://flashrom.org/Supported_programmers
The 'downside' of this is that you need to take your laptop apart.

ODM schematics of your laptop are found here:
http://notebookschematic.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/6515b_6715s.png
Downloads for BIOS updates:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3356623&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3368539&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093#120
and ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp55501-56000/sp55556.exe

My guess (I am not a HP service technician) is that you need
ROM.CAB/Rom.bin from sp55556.exe - you can use 7zip to extract Rom.bin
