    I don't know. AWDflash seems to be started. I usually make a bootable floppy formating under windows (check checkbox bootable floppy).
    There are different verions of Awdflash. It comes usually with the bios. Have you got another Awdflash, maybe on your support cd for motherboard? If not try to download another version of it.

    If you don't have success, I think you have to replace bios chip.

    Hoi !

    Why don't you just replace your BIOS-chip with a new one ?

    For €25,= or equivalent you can make a new start.


    Just shouting sossossossos won't help you any further !

    Greetz,

    Harry.

    Last chance is to try uniflash

    Download it to floppy (instead of awdflash, edit autoexec bat to
    uniflash -Asus -E 317.rom instead of awdflash 317.rom /py/sn/f/cc/r

    well im back again ive stop using awdflash utility got tired of getting error message (this is not award bios) so i ve start using phlash16 have anybody use this utility if have than please help. ok this is what i have done ive download phlash16 and crisis recovery disk set the floppy with all the approrate tools including my 317. rom file and my p5lp-le.bin file change name to platform.bin boot cd at command prompt typed: (phlash16 bios.wph /b bios.rom@rsp platform.bin)took me about 2hrs to get the right switches, where anyway the results i got back was (reading bios) error message (cannot locate platform signature) so then i tried the platform.bin file that came from the crisis recovery disk i open that file first with notepad just to see what was on it,it was from another board but i tried it anyway the results i got back was alittle better (reading bios.rom and this time loading bios image with a check mark for complete but hangs on (identify flash memory type) small note [when using awdflash displayed flash memory type after error] ok than i tried this extract files from hp update bios .exe the files
    i got was:
    317.rom
    flash.exe
    installer.exe
    p5lp-le.bin
    sp26758.rtf
    winflash.sys
    changed winflash.sys to platform.bin results was (reading bios loading bios) hangs on identify flash memory type) which brings me to the conclusing that something wrong with the files look at allmy switches and notices two things which makes me known im doing something wrong
    1:switch @rspfile-response file containing more options
    2:to flash apart you also need the following files
    1)platform.bin (manufacturer initialzation file) might be problem
    2)bios.rom (bios rom image file)
    so can anyone please help will u help thank u

    317.rom is your pure bios file already. You can't extract another one of it. You can rename it to whatever you want, but the contents never change.

    With out the help of other where would the world be:)I like to thank u Yen for your very very great help and support. When everybody else said no, and jump ship, u stood and gave me a hand. Hp help line said board damage can only be reflash through their service, send in for repair 249.00, price of a new board geek squad wanted 250.00 for asmall service everybody else said throw it away heartbroken but u reached out and gave me a life line, when i was beginning to think there was no more hope thank u :) yes my board is up and running again, finnaly. i would of never found my bios file if it wasnt for u, i really wouldnt of never known about extract a.exefile and getting a rom file from it thank u for that knowledge i follow your instructions but there was one small error that was a big factor but u can say that,that was my error because i told u that it was a award bios but instead it was a Phoenix Award BIOS big difference which is why i was using the wrong flash utility iwas using awdflash v7 and v8 when i should of been using Phoenix Award BIOS flash tool v1.16 thank u again u save me 250.00 for a 5 minute job this site just became my favorite forum
