    i made a backup.rom with awdflash from asus 1.36 and others
    and every time i use award mod tool and flash it it shows emachines logo then colored squares all over. (bad mcp61s-00.rom)

    so i switch bios chip to hotflash from original (backup) chip and remake.

    im not sure how to try the modules from the winfast bios that is able to flash with slic 2.1 no problems
    but screen shows winfast and menu keys change.

    i need help remaking the bkup.rom (T5246) with slic 2.1 and maybe mcp61s-00.rom from winfast (662W1P45) bios ?

    i zipped both bioses.. im able to flash bkup.rom and boot no problem . its after award mod tool that it makes bad mod.

    im about to test advanced options like dont modify acpi and so testing 1 by one.. (lots of hotflashing ahead! :ranting:)

    nothing in advanced menu has worked so far.. dynamic or ssv (by hitting cancel to mod gateway 2.0)

    i had soldered a socket to hotswap bios and recover from bkup.bin . lots of fun this was.. ISA is the way
