    Hello I'm trying to update standard P5Q bios 22.09 with option ROM 10.x or v11.x for Intel ICH10R Raid controller, but system doesn't recognize it.
    It hangs during boot on controller page where I should press CTRL-I to configure RAID, displaying a black screen with cursor blinking on the top left corner.
    With older Roms, like 8.x and 9.x, I was able to modify Bios properly with MMTool.
    Is it possible to hack this bios with newer Intel Roms? I've read somewhere that 1MB EEprom (like the one fitted on P5Q) will be unable to use these Roms. Is it true? Why? Can I replace the Eeprom chip with bigger one (i.e. 2mb?)

    Thanks in advice.
