    I have a AMI bios v2.3. mobo MSI 945gcm7-f; ms-7507 [v1.0 (?)]
    I don't have a floppy disk drive. I do have support for booting from USB, i've updated manufactured BIOS through msi liveupdate utility, so it went all automatic, thus i don't know how to proceed regarding 'manually' flashing modded BIOS. I have within the modded bios zip a .230 and .XRM-MS file type. I don't know how to proceed. the help file from my BIOS manufacturer is outdated since it explains using a floppy disk drive.
    I have digged some MDL forums sections, I read about afudos, flash DOS, usb boot disk. Still helpless.

    thanks for above
    I go with DOS flash method. Don't have floppy case. my bios does support booting from USB. (i updated 2.1->2.3 via msi utility which automaitcally built USB flash disk on its setup program) = it's why i don't know how the procedure was runned.
    so if you don't mind, explain DOS method.
    Apreciate your helpful instructions

    No problem, I enjoy helping =)

    To make a DOS USB flash disk, you'll want to follow the steps on this page.

    Once you've done that, copy the "AFUD4234.exe" and "A7507IMS_SLIC.230" files in your modded BIOS's archive to the root of your USB drive, restart the computer, and boot it from USB.

    At the DOS prompt, type "AFUD4234.exe A7507IMS_SLIC.230" to flash your BIOS.

    Let me know if you have any trouble :)

    Is my system AMIBIOS Core 7.xx or AMIBIOS8?

    should I rename to "A7507IMS.230" ?

    Your system is AMIBIOS8.

    Renaming is probably a good idea, to work with the way DOS handles filenames. Just make sure you don't get the files confused.

    Let me know how it goes, then :)

    and
    Version 2.06 Bootable USB Drive.rar >> sendspace.com/file/lf5mem
    but still, couldn't reach the BOOT folder.
    Do you have the files ?

    Tito, read above please. Actually, my issue is where the folder with BOOT files are...
    There is a boot folder zipped at the second link (sendspace.com/file/lf5mem) with command.com, io.sys, msdos.sys. But the extrated folder only exhibits 1 file = command.com.
    regards

    Well, u just need the cracked exe by DavidXXW, which has those files integrated.... u don't need to use NoJuan's method, which is rather complicated!!!

    And io.sys and msdos.sys can't be visible as they are protected system files... either u have to use another explorer like 7-zip File Manager to see them or change the setting in the Windows Explorer ;) :D
