Just Curious?!?!
 
Does EPoX have an automated BIOS update utility that does the work for you?? that's the one thing that I don't like messing too much with is BIOS updates, so I was just curious as to whether you guys had some type of automated utility thatpossbily does it on a reboot or something to that affect, if you know what I mean.... :D

Yes - we have a utility whereby you just extract the BIOS onto a floppy and restart the machine and press ALT+F2 at POST - voila - the BIOS flashes automatically.

That's awesome. Thanks!! Also, does it let you know if the current BIOS on your system is more recent or is the BIOS that you are trying to flash to is/isn't corrupt??

Everytime I try this, it is a no go :( The AWDFLASH utility comes up but it can't find the *.bin on the floppy :( guess I need to get off my bum and flash it the old fashion way . . . .

Provided that the binary file is on the floppy and the floppy drive is fully compatible with the I/O controller of the mainboard, this should not be an issue.

This method has proved most valuable for those who run true 32-bit operating systems who cannot legally create boot disks into a low level environment in which AWDFLASH will run from a prompt.
