    hello to all.my 1st post here.
    a very impressive array of info here.
    i have flashed bioses before so i am familiar with the routine etc.
    i am wanting to flash a rampage formula board with a 2.1 slic inserted.

    most bioses i have flashed have short names,but i am curious about the length of this name and is there a limitation on character length
    RAMPAGE-ASUS-FORMULA-0902.ROM

    has anyone here flashed this particular bios using the above string.
    thanks for your time

    Change it to 0902.rom....unless you use EZFlash2..then I think it doesnt matter.

    If you are going to use it in DOS, you'll likely see an autogenerated short name like RAMPAG~1.ROM anyway. Do "DIR" after booting to see.

    You can cut the name for use in DOS.
