    Hey all,
    I was flashing the bios on my msi board (AMI bios), and I don't know what possessed me to click program boot block, but I thought sure, why not.

    Well the flash said it ran sucessfully, but the board will not not boot.

    I have tried AMIBOOT.ROM on floppy (it don't even try to access the floppy), even with holding CTRL-HOME
    AMIBOOT.ROM on flash drive, closest to NIC port, with and without holding CTRL-HOME

    Wondering if anyone had any final words of wisdom before I chunk this board in the trash?
    manual for board at
    www msi com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=manual&maincat_no=1&prod_no=1460
    bios for board at:
    www msi com/index.php?func=downloadfile&dno=13217&type=bios

    Sorry, I can't post the links, so you have to add the .

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    K9N2GM-FIH or K9N2GM-FD
    look: BIOS-Chip (Factory-BIOS-Version)
    Sticker on the board edge (Example: A7508NMS300)

    That's what's funky, it's not a FD, or FIH.. here's the pic of the label.

    The sticker you are talking about (I assume on the bios chip) is green, and says

    A7508
    MSI120

    ok, if you life in the "EU" look here ... if not... seek a "BIOS Flash Service" on where you live

    BIOS Flash Service (EU) €8,90 for Flash BIOS-Chip / Example: h**p://biosflash.de/e/index.htm

    or send to your: EU msi bios service Example: (EU Link) h**p://msi-shop.de/service/bios-update.html

    Anyone know of a bios service in the US ?

    It's a soldered bios, so I'd prefer to just send it in, it's a multi-layer board, and those pins don't go all the way through.
