    I don't really know what the bootblock image is and I don't know if I need to reset the NVRAM to defaults

    I am flashing my bios so I am trying to pick which of these to use.

    Option 1:

    AFUDOS 4.x Basic Usage:
    AFUDOS ROMFILE.ROM /P /C
    . Program main BIOS image, reset CMOS to defaults

    or Option 2:

    AFUDOS ROMFILE.ROM /P /B /N /C
    . Program main BIOS image & bootblock image
    . Reset CMOS and NVRAM to defaults

    First what Motherboard are you flashing ??
    That will determine the exact version of AFUDOS needed and the switches you need to use.

    Use the version of AFUODS that is included with that Bios Mod in the rar file.
    For that Bios the following command is what you need to use:

    AFU236U /i1802SLIC.ROM.rom

    Don't forget the little "i" after the "/"

    Doesn't your motherboard have something called "EZ Flash"? I have an assu board and it has that tool which is a built-in bios flash utility that makes it easier to update your bios so you don't need Afudos but you can still use it if you want. From my experiece though that the EZ Flash tool is a lot easier to use because you really do not need to know any commands to run it. :)

    Good call sam.
    EZ-Flash does tend to work well with these modified Bios' in most cases.

    thanks NoJuan999. I just wanted to point that out because when I had a modded bios that is what I used. I really do not need that anymore though cause I have a retail key but I still wanted to point that out lol.
