    Hi.
    Iv found a bios for my board on this forum that is validated as working. But still im unsure if if fits because its an hp bundled board, and I cannot find this bios on hp page.
    Is there anyway to check the bios before flashing(test flash) Thinking on using awdflash.

    You just pass it as parameter to qemu. Here is another tutorial link with all the details - please note that it is based on coreboot but just use your bios images instead: http://bioshacking.blogspot.com/2011_10_01_archive.html You can skip coreboot compiling part unless you want to test your option rom using it.
