    when i was update other mobo's i feel ok BUT only when i was update MY MOBO i feel not OK

    i know that i have warranty but it's still creepy moment for me

    p.s. i sure that someone here stop his breath when his computer made a restart after flash

    EDIT: i have also AWARD bios so if i have bad flash is a "one way ticket"
    for AMI bios it's different

    My breath stops even when I flash some computer (any computer, not just mine) with its original, unmodded bios...:eek:

    With my Intel BIOS, the updater freezes for a few minutes every time. It's the scariest few minutes ever!

    A second after I answer yes to "Are you sure?" I regret it and ask myself why the h*ll did I do that?! Only to start breathing again after the single beep sounds.

    He, he...

    It was March 2007, I did my first mod. It took almost 4 hours to realise it (old complex method).

    I took a deep breath and started the flash process. My pulse was rising......

    A single beep after reboot.......a deep breath again......done:D

    I'm always excited when I'm flashing a bios. Original or modified. My board or the board of a friend. It doesn't matter.

    And I always feel sad and sorry if one of my mod had killed a board.:( And I can't explain why it was killed.........

    LOL I actually DID screw up my bios trying to mod it (before I got advice from Yen) and thats what made me have to buy a chip reprogrammer.

    Good news is, since I bought the reprogrammer and all the adapters, I dont care how bad of a flash I do, all my computers have removable chips! :p

    But yeah, for my first one ever, I was scared... but ive been flashing bios' unmodded for years, actually until I found this site it had never hit me you COULD mod a bios, but I also did not know about SLP either.

    The only one I am actually afraid to modify is my other laptop which I let members of my family use. I have no idea if I can recover that one if I mess it up.
