Here is what Asus says I should do for my A7V mobo : 1. Create a bootable system floppy disk by typing [FORMAT A:/S] from the DOS prompt without creating "AUTOEXEC.BAT" and "CONFIG.SYS" files. 2. Copy AFLASH.EXE to the just created boot disk 3. Boot from the disk you created earlier. 4. At the "A:\" prompt, type AFLASH and then press <Enter>. Well I tried FORMAT A:/S from the command prompt and it did'nt like the command. So I did a "create a MS-dos startup disk" from the A: drive format option,is this the same thing,cos when I followed the rest of the instructions ,rebooted and typed "AFLASH" at the A: prompt nothing happened.
