Oops! You are right guys its NTFS. I should have followed the non fat file instructions. Live update is now working, guess what, in the Bios section it supports ver. 2.10 up and I have ver. 2.00 and returns zero updates when run. I am a bit worried about flashing the bios now as I have not done it this way before and the MSI websites seem to have errors and contradictions. Has anyone successfully flashed this board?
I did the bios upgrade. It failed I think it was a corrupt downloaded file on the floppy, one dead pc! Used recovery disk however I did not have instructions and proceeded from memory. Pc now booted up but had to activate Windows again and had no sound; reinstalling nVidia drivers via Live Update fixed this. The problem is although the original CPU is fitted it is now showing as an Athlon 1100mhz instead of the correct Athlon Xp1700+ (1.47Ghz). Is it possible the Bios has not loaded correctly? The really irritating thing is it looks if the Live Bios Update is now working!
