    MMM... Here is my quest... if I flash the BIOS with the incorrect BIOS file, is there any chance to recover it??? Its AMI Bios, the MoBo is Asrock P4VM8, and when I turn it on, the fans spin, th HDD's appears to work, The CD/DVD units lights on and no beep... no nothing, no image... so i still believe that i have a chance... but i have tried many o the methods posted in the Recovery post and still nothing... an it appear that the floppy isn't working it's the only thing that don't do any sound or light led...

    So... really i have a chance???

    PD.: My first bricked MoBo... 1 of 10 :p

    Thanks for your time

    So here is a total newb question, so basically the proof of concept here is, flashed bios's when windows 7 is installed ontop of them, it activates itself thinking it is an install from a manufacturer?

    so if i understood correctly. modified bios i got here is just for "easyer" instalation of windows? well i thought that those modified bios gives more options in it. like overclocking and stuff.
