    And when I press F1 button Windows is load without any another probs.

    But would to know how I can to solve this?

    Motherboard MSI ms 7222 (PM8PM-V)

    I found one thread on this forum with the same problem and with the same motherboard. (But I cannot to put one link here, I don't have levels? right?)

    On that link looks have the same problem, but I don't understand.

    What is "MSI-Award flash utility" and where I can found? ,the same with "AWDFL882"

    and I can found my MAC Address in another place on my computer? I think someone pulled that sticker which shows the MAC address. Cuz' I can't found in my board.

    Hi,

    So... I put that code right, but when I've done and press "Enter" shows the window with name to Bios etc.. and made two bips, but not complete.

    can it be the name of my file .bin?

    I put Old.bin ,Bios.bin...

    Anyway I don't know what the problem, when made two bips shows that on window

    "Flash Type - PMC PM49FLOO4T LPC/FWH"

    what dos version are u using ?
    no ramdrive needed.
    the ram possibly dont have good connection in the sockets.. dirty connection in sockets?= take ram out .. clean with pencil eraser the gold tips and insert back.

    with the hirensbootcd.org on USB (format first time ever used the YUMI tool from pendrivelinux >then copy bios file to usb)
    i used dos tools. custom size, no ram drive and that works perfectly for these.

    Im using DOS any version that I find. (I think this is not a prob).

    Where I can found hirensbootcd.org ? ,I had to put this file to made a bootable ?

    I already clear the ram and if I remove the RAM on computer will beep calling back.

    Anyway, Where I can found my MAC (Is no longer on the board). I used a soft for swap this but nothin' happen.

    See... And I try to use Mac Tool:

    asrock.com/support/**download/MacTool.asp

    So I create a USB Bootable with this files on USB.
    okay, I did like the site.

    mac (Enter) after show info' about that soft etc.. after:

    mac c XXXXXXXXXXX

    Where that XXXX is my Mac ,I put several using the software to swap mac address. but always shows: UNSUPPORTED.

    So... I really don't understand, You know?

    One more time, sorry with my bad english!

    Tnx, Again!

    Okay, sorry was my error!
    when write this code using awdflash:

    awdflash YYYYY.bin /py/sn/nvmac:XXXXXX/wb

    press enter, and will show a window with the name of bios.bin
    and had to press enter again(don't know about).

    Okay, and will be load, After awdflash will request to remove USB and press F1 ,All right?

    Done, but still keeps with the same prob: "Verifying DMI pool data... MAC Address in flash rom failed! Please input address next time, press [F1] to continue"

    I really don't understand, what I do wrong!?

    Okay, so will load cmos default. and option LAN is enabled.

    I've a prob cuz' I don't know what mac address I've to use onboard or offboard, and I take my mac address on Prompt with "ipconfig /all" and the numbers on "phisical address" this is the right?

    Ops... and about the bios file, this is a file without extension. so I put a name "Bios.bin" and now this is a .Bin file thats correct process right?

    Really don't know what a prob, I've made all what you said. this is so hard to write mac address on board, I think not! ^^
