    Dear all,
    I am newbie with AMI bios,
    my past experience with Bios are all with AWARD bios. :eek:

    It seem more easy to flash Award bios. :)

    It seem a lot of "HELP!...dead..." or "...problem" or "...won't boot...", etc... with AMI bios flashing
    :confused:
    So, pls advice and correct me if wrong ==


    The command:
    Code:
    Basic Usage:
    
    AFUDOS ROMFILE.ROM /P /C
    . Program main BIOS image, reset CMOS to defaults
    
    AFUDOS ROMFILE.ROM /P /B /N /C
    . Program main BIOS image & bootblock image
    . Reset CMOS and NVRAM to defaults
    
    copy from AFUDOS 4.xx Readme
    - The above are standard, correct command string to FLASHing all of the bios (update or modded) for AMI bios ?? or there is another CORRECTLY command string ?? --- Why award is more easy (IMHO)...

    - How to know which version of AFUDOS to use with which version of AMI bios ?

    - How about AFUWIN provided by board-manufactures (example: ECS included the AFUWIN in the zip file together with ROM bios file), it okey to use with the standard/default setting ? or there is another hidden risk to flash using AFUWIN ??


    Thanks n Brgds
