    I modded a bios in the past for a user and used method SSV3 and he said he couldnt access the bios setup anymore. When i saw his message i remodded with 0+2 and everything worked great for him. If SSV3 fails for you, i would suggest to try 0+2 :cool:

    Thank you. SSV3 works with the new tool.

    *Should I use awdflash or flashspi? Or does it matter?

    I would use flashspi since that's what comes with your bios

    I will say......NEVER!!!!!

    QFlash is a risk..@BIOS is plain asking for trouble..

    That utility is not known to work well with factory bios, let alone modified files...

    The official flashing tool is, in fact, FLASHSPI from DOS. It is shipped with the file and sometimes made for the file specifically.

    The rest are shortcuts for the rest of the world..:D I guess to support the tech service department..:D:cool:

    Thanks for the info everyone.

    I've never used @Bios and never will. I know enough to not flash any bios from within windows.

    I've used Qflash before with factory bios updates without problems, as well as FlashSPI.

    Both seem to work fine. When I'm ready to flash a modded bios, I'm going with FlashSPI. I've also enabled dual virtual bios, just in case. Can't believe it was disabled.

    For the moment, there's too many software incompatibilities with Win7 RTM and some of my apps to justify switching. RC1 works good for now.

    Thanks again.
