    I am trying to patch my Dell Vostro 200 with the Modded Bios found in the All SLICs 2.x (Modded Bios List) thread post 4050

    -Motherboard : Dell Vostro 200
    -Bios Revision :
    -Bios type: AWARD

    Modified by: NoJuan999
    SLIC: DELL-FX09-1.0BAWRD 2.1
    Cert: DELL
    Modded with AWARD SLIC Mod 1.37
    Mod method: ISA

    Modified Bios link:
    DELL_Vostro_200_1.0.1.6_DELL-FX09_SLIC_2.1_ISA.rar (DELL Cert and AWDFlash Included)

    I have build a bootable usb using the instructions provided in the thread titled Make A bootable USb drive For Flashing Fom DOS in the Windows 7 section

    the system boots to a dos prompt I type AWDFLASH then press enter, AwardBIOS Flash Utility v8.94 loads I type the filename of modded BIOS (713D1S50.BIN) and press enter, then it asks if I want to backup the current bios, I say (Y)es then ender the filename OLD.BIN I press Enter and the system freezes.

    I have also tried building a bootable USB using the Rufus tool, it still crashes in the same place with the following error:
    Runtime error 200 at D83A:F014

    Has anyone got any ideas how I can get past this and backup then update the BIOS?

    first test ram then try making backup with universal bios backup tool then try flash without backup in awdflash.
    check awdflash version 8.94..

    You need to be careful and use correct switches or you will lose MAC address i,e, reset to FF-FF-FF-FF-FF-FF example below with correct switches
    awdflash bios.bin /cc/cd/cp/py/wb/sn/E
