Dumb Question For EPoX Tech

This might be a dumb question, but something I need to know. I found two bios updates for my 8KMM+, one on the Taiwan EPoX site and one on the EPoX German site. My question is...are these bios updates in the respective languages of the websites? Since I don't know these languages (Speak English), I wanted to make sure I didn't flash my bios and not be able to read anything. The file names are "8kmm2626.exe" on the German site, and "8KMM2326.zip" on the Taiwan site. I opened each of the .bin files in notepad, and there are English phrases in the file, but I'm not sure that means everything is in English. I have previous experience flashing a bios, but never tried an EPoX before. Neither of these are on any English speaking sites that I can find by the way. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Jim

i personally have downloaded and flashed my bios with files from both the German and Taiwan sites. it did not change my "language" displayed in the bios itself. the different bios numbers maybe an indication of different bios dates.

I never thought about this...How DO they know which language my BIOS is in?? Maybe it's a lucky guess...naw.

Welcome to our forums kimnjim! As you may notice this is a very busy time for our EPoX techs, that I'm sure this the reason they haven't answered your question...or mine! LOL

Thanks for your replies. I had done this with other boards, but wasn't sure if EPoX was going to be different. I guessed the numbers were revisions already, but wasn't sure if the language was site specific or not. I just didn't want a bunch of stuff on the screen and not be able to know how to get back where I was. Thanks also for your welcome as well.

Jim
