    DO NOT FLASH YOUR BIOS LIKE THAT!!!

    With that out the way... Most flash utilities will check to make sure the bios is compatable unless you specificall tell it not to check... So that's a good thing... Check to make sure you dl'd the correct bios for your board and board revision...

    what way do i flash it then?????



    flash setts:
    Enabled:
    Boot block programming
    NVRAM programming
    Reboot after Programming done
    Clear CMOS after programming done

    Disabled:
    BIOS functions are called by ROM file
    Load cmos defaults
    clear passwords during loading cmos defaults
    file check sum verify (that may be wrote done wrong)
    Bios file tag check
    GPNV data area reserving


    are these setts ok?

    Sorry I did'nt mean to scare you too bad...

    Your probably flashing correctly just with the wrong bios file...
