The most current version of the BIOS (the one I'm trying to use) is named C18D1007.bin . Maybe I have to keep it out longer? To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below.

  1. I believe the file is named correctly.
  2. I can't get to an A: prompt unfortunately and we've decided to RMA it and get the Abit NF7S board.
  3. The problem was solved by replacing the motherboard battery and using a disc to flash the memory.

Hopefully this works. No change. Also, it isn't necessary to use a bootable floppy with AWD flash. I think it is likely that the battery on the motherboard has to be renewed also, if it is now 9 years old.

Thanks )-| 01-01-2004, 02:17 PM randmo OK, I let it sit overnight (12 hrs) with the battery out and tried it again. Thanks again for the response 01-01-2004, 07:26 PM Rocketmech I would install clean . I don't know what the sticker saying, "Phoenix BIOS" refers to, but apparently not to the motherboard BIOS, because that is obviously from Award, which is a different company. Just dont have multiple copies of AWDFLASH in the root .

I'm aprehensive advising you to power off your machine given Tunzafun's advice, but I had a similar problem using the Asus Update utilty on a A7N8X Dlx board.

I think you simply need to clear the CMOS by removing the battery for awhile (anywhere from 15 minutes to overnight). Either keep trying different flash utilities and .bin files or RMA the mobo. 01-01-2004, 05:44 PM randmo I appreciate your reply. I took out the battery for about an hour, popped it back in, and still had the same problem. navigate to this website I even tried it with the version that use to be on the mobo but everytime it still comes up with the message - Source File Not Found.

If not we'll do the clean install. I cleared the CMOS for about an hour and it booted up fine. The syntax is like this: awdflash [BIOS filename.bin] /py/wb/cd/sn/cc/r or this: awdflash [BIOS filename.bin] /cc /cd /cp /r /py 12-31-2003, 09:25 PM randmo I didn't back up the old .bin file

I believe its in the root, since the F2 + Alt method uses it to flash update with.

Just extract the BIOS file to a floppy with AWD flash, hit Alt+F2 at POST. 12-31-2003, 07:28 PM rraehal You must name the BIOS image file correctly in some cases.
