How to flash my 8KHA+ bios

I have an Athlon XP 1800 on the way. I 've also downloaded the lastest bios for this board from the Epox website. Now how to flash properly.

Do I place all the files from the flash executable file onto a floppy and use built in flash program or type in update at the a: command prompt etc...


Could someone give me a description of the flash procedure. I would really appreciate it...

thanks...

erm.. i always use the update.bat batch file that comes in the .zip file. unzip everything onto a bootable floppy (make one from the dos prompt, not windows). then boot off the floppy and run the update.bat batch file. easy enough.

Even easier still and not requiring a boot floppy (good for Me, NT and Linux users) is to do the following ...[list=1][*]Download BIOS and extract to a blank floppy[*]Leave the floppy in the A: drive[*]Restart the machine[*]At POST press ALT + F2[*]Watch the BIOS automatically flash in front of your very eyes[/list=1]

Now if that's not the easisest way to flash a BIOS, I don't know what is !!

The beauty of it is that it works regardless of your operating system.

This is a good push to stop people illegaly copying boot disk software whilst offering the end user a neat and simple way to flash the BIOS.

i've always been wary of the alt-f2 bios thing. not a clue why, but i have. i think i'm gonna try it next time. sounds easier than the other way, esp. if you're running an os that doesn't make decent boot disks, like me or 2k.

Whenever I try the ALT+F2 thing, it says it can't find the BIOS image. What up with dat?

Just finished flashing the bios. The only difference I see on post is the date has changed to 10/17/2001 VT8366-8233 etc... Does that mean the bios flash took...

Cant wait for my Athlon XP 1800 to arrive in a few days....hope i get a good stepping.

Thanks Epox Tech and all....


By the way I used the Awdflash utility...so easy..
