For Awdflash

Code:
AWDFLASH <New_BIOS> <Backup_BIOS> <options>

The New_BIOS file is the BIOS you WANT to flash into your 
machine. The Backup_BIOS file is the name of the file you want
the old BIOS saved into.

/Py	Automatically answers "Yes" to the question about
 	reflashing the BIOS - IE reflashes without asking.
/Pn	Automatically answers "No" to the question about
	reflashing the BIOS - IE Doesn't reflash.

/Sy	Automatically answers "Yes" to the question about
	saving the old BIOs - IE Automatically saves old BIOS.
/Sn	Automatically answers "No" to the question about
	saving the old BIOS - IE Doesn't save the old BIOS.

/SB	Prevents AwdFlash from re-writing the BootBlock. 

/R	Tells AwdFlash to reboot after flashing

/E	Returns you to DOS after the BIOS flash

/F	Uses systemBIOS routines to reflash instead of 
	AwdFlash routines. You'd only need this if your flash
	memory has odd timing requirements.

/Tiny	Tells AwdFlash to be miserly with RAM when reflashing. 
	Takes longer and makes several passes at reflashing.

/CC	Clears CMOS data
/CP	Clears PnP data (ESCD)
/CD	Clears DMI data
/LD	Clears CMOS data and resets checksum. avoids the 
	Press F1 message on reboot. Only use if it the BIOS 
	Defaults are fine for your use!

/CKS	Provides checksum of the BIOS file.

/CKSxxxx	
	Compares the BIOS file's checksum with the checksum 
	provided.
Hope that helps!
