    Just wanted to have you guys look this over to see if the bios I modded looks ok before I flash it to the MB **Bios is for an older board Abit BD7-II RAID**

    1.) I used the "Cbrom mybios.bin /ISA ISA.bin" command to insert the HP ISA.BIN file into my bios. (Used HP because I already made a HP OEM BOOT DVD)

    This is what showed on the screen
    cbrom mybios.bin /ISA ISA.BIN
    cbrom V1.82 [04/11/07] (C)Phoenix Technologies 2001-2007
    Adding ISA.BIN 75.7%

    does this mean it only added 75.7% of the ISA.BIN file?

    2.) I then used "CBROM mybios.bin /D" to check if the info was there and this is what came up.

    ******** mybios.bin BIOS component ********

    Remain compress code space = 115B1h(69.42K)

    PGA478 05 0F13 | PGA478 05 0F25 | PGA478 33 0F27 | PGA478 11 0F29

    Does this look ok to flash to the board or did adding the ISA fail? Also is this MB too old?

    i have a 3ghz P4 HT and 2 gigs of DDR ram in the system so it should run vista ok. And yes i know its old, but its my old mans pc and he wants to use vista....
