    "ending flash recovery
    flash update failed
    flash rom not detected
    system halted"

    i suppose that amiboot.rom isn't correct rom name. how can i open 324.rom to find a exact name and extension? with hex editor? i try hpbios.rom but nothing happens...

    i have "old problematic" chip and a "used but good" chip from identical mb. i power off the mb, unmount "problematic chip" and mount "used but good" chip, power on the mb and now bios starts and is perfect! actually bios version is 3.19. i can update it to 3.24, than make a backup.rom and upload to you to made slic version? right?

    yes MAKE BACKUP of 3.19 FIRST!! .. also repair Old problematic chip by hotswap flashing bios from usb dos (i just did this for a bad slic mod3 days ago too). might need to solder on motherboard a socket for the bios if none. (mount unmount.. no solder ??)
    (repair old so we dont break only working one with bad slic mod flash.)

    pry on corners of chip in socketwith 2 toothpicks (to prevent shorts with metal tools) or use a plastic coated paper clip..
    it is on a socket? not soldered on motherboard correct ??
    all u do is boot with usb dos then swap( pry with toothpicks from socket and plug in problem chip) and run the flash

    the one i did used AWDFLASH and i had to use /QI to allow part number mismatch because ws different mobo .. same bios socket
