Bricked Y550 installing BIOS update

Downloaded the 1ECN33WW(V5.07x64).exe file directly from the Y550 driver page and proceeded to run the installation-this froze my computer.  Upon reboot, I am left with a completely black screen and suspect that the BIOS is corrupted.

 

Doing some research, I see that many people have experienced this problem.  In short, I need the bios.wph file to run the recovery on this page:

Please advise.

I have tried to discharge static, replacing with a different HDD, and reinstalling the RAM.

Froze on this screen:
