IMO, this is about the dumbest stunt I've ever seen tried! It's hard to imagine that this isn't just a story, since the DOS boot would still be using BIOS services, which aren't there!Kataclysm said:Old friend of mine had the same problem. He found a second "asus a7v" remove the bios and put it into his first mother board. He boot on disk drive then remove the bios from his mother board put his old bios then reflash it.
I never try this and I whish to never had to try it. It's what i call a "cowboy" solution.
What is a FLASH programmer?? and where can i find one?johnwill said:If it can't find a floppy drive, you may be SOL. Have you tried clearing the CMOS parameters with the MB jumper, then at least find the floppy drive?
If that fails, and the BIOS FLASH is in a socket, you can program it on a FLASH programmer, that's how I've solved aborted updates in the past. Many newer boards have the flash soldered onto the MB, and that option doesn't exist for them.
