BIOS Re-Flash

  seedie 20:13 09 Sep 2003

Half an hour ago I was going to title this thread "dearly beloved we are gathered today"

Noticed Holly Polly has same MB as I and she flashed her BIOS, so I thought to myself go on.

After a particulary good dinner and bott. of claret I fired up the gigabyte upgrade tool and flashed away.

On reboot I got NVram upgrade OK! then wait....

I waited and waited for 5 mins. Reboot again got same thing. Comes the point where you say to yourself "leave 'til tomorrow" but stupidity prevailed and pressed DEL on 3rd boot.

Set BIOS to defaults and as the saying goes. "Bobs your unc"

1st flash I've done; virtual drinks on me boys.

Chuffed CD

Don't go there unless you know what your doing one slip on your part can you an arm and a leg as they say.

I have still got to attempt this nerve racking experience. A bottle of claret you said?
