We would always say - flash to the latest BIOS.

In order to flash the BIOS :-

1. Extract files from downloaded file to a floppy disk.
2. Insert floppy in drive
3. Restart PC.
4. Press ALT+F2 at POST.
5. Sit back and watch the BIOS flash.

You'd be better off using WinFlash!

LOL

Yea, true that!
ET is it possible to flash a from a flash memory stick (usb), or is it going to be possible to do that in the future?

Now that floppy drives are getting less and less common on computers, and not all mobo makers have AWARD bios' that can be flashed from within an OS how is the best way to do it?

My 8K3A is running OpenBSD so I cant use award flash, and it doesnt have a floppy drive in it, as i simply cannot be bothered with one. Is there a way to do it?

When using supported Bios files from epox sources you should be able to pull it off the easiest way with the alt-f2 method as ET said. I think any epox representative will tell you that. Though i'm very intrested in the possibility with the usb flash memory devices
I only have old floppies with labels like "alone in the dark" and "krondor". They are at least from the previous century so i don't trust them very much and i hope my next PC will not have/need a floppy drive. I also heard they are not implemented in the next ATX standards which is about time imho.

Dsio, I've found that a number of EPoX motherboards support booting from an external USB device. There's nothing to stop you trying to make a USB flash device bootable.

I tried making my camera bootable one time but it was easier said than done.

Did you have some "bootable" pics?!
Btw, any new decent mobo should have a "boot from usb device" option..

I dont know TBO, its a very old board. Much as I love the thing, I bought my 8K3A back in 2001, and its about four years old now. I have never tried booting off a usb device on that mobo before, so i might give it a go.
