    I'm doing some poking around for an upcoming build.

    The latest bios file is here (7721v20.zip): http://us.msi.com/service/download/bios-20703.html

    Previous versions included the bios and afude. This version is just and .exe intended to be run from dos via usb.

    I am not familiar with this type. I have tried to get the files from the .exe using 7zip and universal extractor, but it did not work.

    Andy's tool appears able to extract the bios, but I do not yet have a rw file. Good news there,

    My main concern is I would like to know what flashing program is in use, but can't get into the .exe. Since Andy's tool does, It seems possible but I don't know what tool to use or what I am doing wrong. Any ideas? Thank you.

    Note: not modify bios with phoenix tool - dynamic default
    bios original flash with afudos

    open bios E7721V20.exe with winhex. del 0h - 2BC39C h (bios = 800 000 h)
    or you can bakup bios with AFUDE238.exe

    Thank you for catching my typo too. Just for clarification, are you saying I should NOT use dynamic method with phoenix tool?

    Aww...I no longer have this board. It was a project for a kiddo I know, and I doubt I could get him off minecraft long enough to do anything! Hopefully the pointers above will help anyone else looking for it.
