    If one takes a look at the AMIBIOS for the Acer AcerPower F5, the BIOS can be loaded in Andy's AMI mod tool - but once started, an error is given

    "AMIBIOS string not found" error. If one opens the BIOS, using any HEX editor, it IS in the file...2 times. So why can't the mod tool see it? And any luck changing the tool?

    BIOS file
    Code:
    ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/desktop/AP-F5/bios/r02-a3.zip

    Take a look here. Not sure about the error though.
