    I have tried to recover a AMI bios. The mainboard is a HP IPIBL-LA mainboard. I have followed the post number 2105 here from the forum with no succes .All I got is three long beeps, a pause and then again three beeps and so on. It still try to boot up from floppy but with no succes.

    Who know what to do?

    Thanks in advance ADB

    just had the same issue ......ipilb-la bios recovery
    the correct answer is.

    put bios onto floppy drive (u have to have one laying around somewhere, i didn`t think i needed it but i put an old one in my case just for this.)
    rename bios to HPBIOS.ROM on floppy
    boot pc with floppy while holding ctrl and home keys until floppy reads
    beeps 5 times and reboots
    that simple

    to determine filename for bios open in hexediter and search for ROM until you get filename(remove spaces if needbe)

    hope this helps someone
