I wasn't aware the Bootblock even bothered to look at the CMOS. The Bootblock code only appears when it detects that the BIOS code itself is corrupt.

I had thought, but might not be correct, that the boot disk required a basic version of DOS (and no config.sys), and a version of autoexec.bat that had something like the following in it:

Replace the xxxxxxxx.BIN with whatever the filename is of the replacement BIOS.
Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
