    Here we go! I bought a GA-M61PM-S2. That uses a MX 25L4005 (the same of MX25L8005, but with half memory, 4MB)! I do the Hot Flash! Partial successful! I try to flash my MX25L8005 into the GA-M61PM-S2, but the FLASH895 recognize it like the MX 25L4005, that has a 512Kb bios capacity, while the MX25L8005 of my GA-MA78GM-S2H uses a 1MB bios file! The result of my hot flash is bios file size error! I also use the AWDFLASH v8.93 but no results! Uniflash v1.40, UniflashRE v.47re build 09, but no one recognize my MX25L8005 nor my chipset (GeForce 6100 / nForce 430)! After many many tries, I Hot Flash my MX25L8005 with the GA-M61PM-S2 bios file version F4! Successful!! The computer boot normally, post, display screen! This proves that my MX25L8005 chip isn’t burned, that make me happy! My next step was boot the GA-M61PM-S2 mobo with my MX25L8005 chip hot flashed with the GA-M61PM-S2 bios file and try to flash it with the GA-MA78GM-S2H bios file version F4 (1MB)! No results! Again my MX25L8005 chip is recognized like MX 25L4005 (512Kb bios capacity)! I try the AWDFLASH v8.93 with many parameters! It recognized my MX25L8005 like MX25L8005 chip, but write fail!! :(<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    I don´t know how, but the GA-M61PM-S2 mobo doesn’t recognize my MX25L8005 like MX25L8005 chip, but like MX25L4005, and it´s doesn’t allow me to flash my chip with the correct 1MB bios file!<o:p></o:p>
    At night I´ll try to boot the GA-M61PM-S2 mobo with my MX25L8005 chip flashed with GA-M61PM-S2 bios file version F4, enter Windows XP and try to run @BIOS into windows! Maybe it´s recognize my MX25L8005 chip like MX25L8005 chip, and finally allow me to flash it with GA-MA78GM-S2H bios file version F4 (1MB)!<o:p></o:p>
    Any suggestions??<o:p></o:p>
    LSD can you help me??

    Well, it does sound like your idea and method works great. But sadly, it sounds like you are going to have to buy a board with that exact chip on it like maybe a newer board.

    Yes, I know! If I would reduce the size of my GA-MA78GM-S2H bios, I able to flash it! I´ll try it today, maybe flash only with "original.bin" file, to try to boot on my GA-MA78GM-S2Hboard and finally flash with 1MB bios! Any other ideas?

    Thank´s!
