    Shuttle SP35P2 (not Pro) - bios recovery

    Thanks for the warning, but i found out myself the hard way !!!

    My shuttle was dead; after hours of frustration I managed to flash my motherboard again using the original bios.

    I followed the bios recoovery procedure; see post 84:
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/2105?page=9

    Luckily i was able to get hold of a old floppy drive and a floppy disk and made a bootable dos disk with the bios files. Cleared cmos and switched off PC, short circuited the two pins shown in the pic and powered on PC; AFTER several attempts I got lucky - floppy disk was recignised and I was able to enter dos prompt and flash by bios again. It was a quite an experience

    I know that feeling. Glad you've got it to work again..Playing with bios isn't sometimes a pleasant matter...

    Yeah, I've been there too many times, it's really awful. :)

    Thanks for the tips, I'll try your procedure. I was aware about the bootblock option but I didn't know that our board has a floppy connector! :D

    EDIT:

    Well, it doesn't work. I connected a floppy drive with a boot disk inserted, the old BIOS file and the autoexec.bat with the AWDFLASH OLD.BIN /CC /CD /CP /QI /R /PY /SN line in it. I've shorted the 2 pins of the chip and rebooted a hundred times to no avail, I didn't even see the floppy led on. Am I forgetting something?

    Mastermoo, how did you do the shortcircuit? Short and power on? Short *while* power on? Short, power on and wait for something?

    @Taxidermista: Use the recovery image provided by zort:

    I did the recovery twice; don't know the exact method but this one worked first time:
    removed the cmos battery, waited a little while, put battery back in. Got hold of a twizzer and placed it in from the side touch the two pins, turned power on, switched on PC and removed twizzer. PC should turn on and off by itself and floppy should start to read if successful. Good luck!

    Jezz, now the battery... I can't remove it, it's blocked by the copper pipes. :(

    I'd rather go with the CLEAR CMOS button on the back, pressing it for 30 sec.

    EDIT:

    No way, I follow your steps and nothing, I never saw the light on the floppy drive. Did you press any keys? Did you remove the pci-e graphic card? I did all the thing with the video card removed.

    BTW, thanks for the recovery image zort.

    @Taxidermista: are you sure you are shorting the pins correctly?

    If the pins are being shorted, and you keep it shorted then I believe the PC should turn on//off continuously until you let go!

    I can confirm that the trick with shorting the 2 pins on the bios chip works on SP35P2 Pro also.

    After successfully modding my bios with 2.0 slics for a while i failed miserable with 2.1 ending up with blinking cursor at boot (after system check).
    Popped in a floppy drive i had laying around and tried in wain to get it to boot.

    Decided to try shorting the 2 pins (as seen in Taxidermistas picture) and voila after some trial and error i got it in to rescue boot from the floppy by using a paper clip.
