    Thanks for replying.

    Do you mean flash the new one and make a backup of it?

    Cannot run the bios? Do you have the correct board for the bios or some method to run bios for testing?

    It can be possible to extract the bios image from the exe; see here for example.

    AWDFLASH is a dos app; run it from a dos bootable pen drive.

    ;)

    Trying now Tito!

    Put on hold for now. Installed Win 7 and used the loader to activate. I still want to get this modded but I believe it would be a waist of time in my case.
    I will have to actually attempt it later as the computer is a clients.

    Flashed using USB DOS, put the files from the download here in the root, and then had my autoexec.bat run, "dosflash". Flashed successfully.
