cannot upgrade the bios on the board, ive downloaded the bios upgrade however, its not an automatic program even though its a .exe. the file contains 2 parts awd flash and the bios upgrade. anyone know the next piece of the puzzle, as soyo has a way of not saying you should know how to do this. all i could find in the kb (knowledge base) is to dl win 98 boot disk and proceed from there, great im running xp. clue me in.

Usually very good Readme files come with the downloads though I've never dealt with Soyo myself.

Being plugged into an UPS is a very good idea while doing the flash also.

thats nice theoretically, apparently the japanese have no use for read me files, as far as the ups weve had a lot of hurricanes lately but i dont see the relevance, thanks any how for the reply, any suggestions darthanion?

You can get a Windows 98 boot disk from www.bootdisk.com and run the program from DOS, assuming that's what you're suposed to do.

Suggestions? Sure!
Seeing as you have the required Flashing utility and the latest BIOS, the next logical step is to RTFM. If you don't happen to have it, you can download it from the link below. A quick check shows that Appendix C covers how to Flash the BIOS.

When in doubt, always turn to the manual.
