I had posted this in the Award & AMI Bios thread, however I'm going to make it's own thread as I could really use some advice on this one and it's a bit more exposure on it's own. So, here's the back story. The machine is a Compaq SR5510f. The motherboard is an Iris8-GL6 (ECS MCP61PM-HM) with an Award BIOS. I tried flashing an SLIC 2.1 bios onto it (premade, had been floating around on the site), using WinFlash (I know I know, I'm an idiot, should've done it from DOS). The flash seemed to go ok, rebooted, and now I get the Compaq screen, followed by the good old message saying CMOS values had been reset due to a blah-blibbity-blah hit F10 to enter setup. Then, black screen. I can hit ESC for boot menu when it starts up, or F10 to go into the BIOS. F10 leaves me with the all black screen, ESC gives me a blinking cursor in the top left of the screen. If I let the machine sit for a few moments without hitting anything, it will end up on the screen with the blinking cursor. I've tried the recovery method for Award with a USB Floppy, USB Flash Drive w/a floppy emulation partition, a CD (figured I'd give it a shot), and yes, even a genuine internal floppy drive (only tried 1 so far, and only 1 cable. I do have others and am considering trying them, incase the one I used is bad, however I would assume a USB floppy should work fine). But alas, can't seem to get anything to take. It's not a SUPER huge deal, as it's a buddy's computer and I can just order up a new mobo through his HP warranty at work, however I'd rather not have to wait the few days for it to get in. So, any suggestions from anyone?
