Flashing Bios

  luvpup 18:35 28 Jan 2003

Some dude asked about this a little while ago+, but only got 1 response and he wasn't sure.
I have AMD GA-7IXE motherboard and it wont recognise a new WD 80 GB hdd, so I got the flash file from Gigabyte.com. Tried it in windows first, said dos /4G error or something, so I booted through floppy into DOS mode.
The file worked, but same as other guys question, asks for file names: "original" and then "destination".

As I'm sure u can tell, I'm pretty clueless, and I don't want to damage the pc, also I'm worried coz my bios has been set up like ignore some irq values for video card etc., will this reset those values or.... wot is going on, I don't know, I'm dumb

Unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing, don't do it.

It is so easy to destroy your machine if it goes wrong.
