Has any one hot flash a bios chip on Intel motherboard successfully? If so, please tell me how.
if you bios chip is not soldered on mobo.
-Boot up your machine
-plug in your new bios
-unplug and changing back bios chips
Hi, Thanks for the reply. I understand. But it is an Intel board, unlike other retail board manufacturers, Intel which uses its own proprietary flash utility that stops the flash right in the beginning if it detects the model does not match the bios file.
So did any one actually hot flash bios successfully on an Intel board? If so, how?

You cannot "hot flash" (which requires swapping PROM chip while the board is running) a board with a soldered PROM.
You need a jtag or serial header to flash a PROM that is soldered to the board.
Think youv'e got it mixed up here to start with if you could boot up then you can reflash bios , You need to replace bios chip with other working one and when in Dos, then remove chip and replace with non bootable one and flash.
