    Hi all, first time posting.
    I updated my bios from here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/27301?highlight=wolfdale1333#post27301 .
    What do I do now, I mean what do I do after I do my fresh install of vista ultimate x86?

    My mobo:

    Asrock Wolfdale1333-D667 R2.0
    Bios: Updated to 1.4.


    I previously had vista running for almost a year with another crack. But doing some updates it stopped working. So, here I am, not sure what to do. I've read a lot of stuff and I took off UAC and defender and I made sure I got full admin rights. Can someone please give me hand. I tried to do a few updates through vista loader, it worked and took off the activation but as soon as I dl'd some more updates with vista it took off the activation. So, as of now I am at a loss, do I reformat again and not donwload those updates which stop the activation and hope that the loader will work? Any ideas or directions like a step by step I need to would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help.

    Hi, I appreciate the help. Got another simple quesiton:

    Will I be able to do all the updates or should I try to avoid those updates that try to thwart this type of activation? Thanks again.

    You may install ALL updates (so far);)
    A real bios mod is the best way!

    LOL

    Man oh man... Thought by flashing the bios with the newier one was the real bios thing? LOL

    Ok, I hate to ask, but if I'm this far, how do I go about doing a real bios mod?

    LOL

    Thanks. ;)

    Hey, I think that is the one I dl'd. :D
    But thanks for all the help, I updated after your instructions and I was reluctant to download that patch from windows against verification. So, I saved it for last, got brave and decided to dl'd it after all. Everything is running smoothly and great!

    Thanks for your help, really appreciate. Welain Netup! :D
