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:

Code:
AWDFLASH.EXE xxxxxxxx.BIN /SN /PY /CC /CD /CP /F /R
Replace the xxxxxxxx.BIN with whatever the filename is of the replacement BIOS.
