    I'm attempting to flash a Toshiba Satellite P305D using Phlash 16 with a wph file.

    Before I attempt to flash it with a modded flash, I am trying to flash it with a factory flash.

    It will start the process, make a lot of loud beeps, complete the flash read, and then it will consistently fail on "Check Flash Memory Type(s)". On the bottom it shows "performing platform initialization". I've tried this numerous times and it will freeze at the same point every time.

    I've also tried booting with a Windows 98 and a Windows ME boot disk.

    I have to disconnect the power and reboot the pc after this freezes. The old bios still functions fine.

    Anyone else encounter this or have any ideas?

    I think when I flashed my Toshiba Satelite I used WinPhash as mine had a .rom extension
