I have an Asus A8V that I bought nearly 2 years ago. The sticker on the BIOS chip has this on it:

A8V05
1008
DE1D
0(??)M 25H

... I just bought a CPU from Newegg.com and it is due next week. It is a Athlon 64 Socket 939 Venice 3200. I called a tech support person, but I am still not assured that I will be able to boot to DOS in order to update the BIOS so that Windows/Linux work on it.

Can someone help me here? I looked on the Asus Website, and it lists higher BIOS, but the tech told me that anything above 1007 would work. Is he correct? TIA.
