    Hi all

    quite a while ago i flashed my bios with a modded bios

    got it from here trough the search, flashed it, and works fine...

    h-t-t-p://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5863-Award-amp-AMI-Bios-mod-requests?p=989056&viewfull=1#post989056

    problem now is.....

    a newer bios-version is available for my Z97 EXTREME6 board, wich fixes a few issues ive been having problems with (AHCI and USB stability)

    however i never noticed before, when i enter my bios my bios version is expressed in weird signs instead of a normal version number....
    system works pretty ok so far, but now when i want to update trough either instantflash, dos or from windows, it wont let me install or update my bios, the wintool tells me that i have an incorrect system, also tried a few older tricks, like changing the bios-name to ami-boot and other options, but they all fail....

    anyone else out there who can help me fix this?

    trough AIDA-64 my bios is recognized as: AMI EFI 4.6.5

    in the bios itself it says %a %a

    SLIC version v2.3 LENOVO

    plz help me, im also ordering a spare bios chip since i can change these on my board, but i still would like to try and fix this

    greetings red, and sorry if i posted in the wrong forumcategory...

    i will try and add a picture of my bios page asap.

    well im back and unfortunatly no succes :-(

    it wont let me flash the bios cuz the size is different

    understand that i want to flash back to a Original unmodded bios version

    is there any special command for that or another tool to do so?

    also command /C was not recognized

    im using AFUDOS version 5.05.04

    thanks in advance for the effort made by anyone who is willing to help with this issue
