    Please, donīt do what I did.
    I was happy with the Bios 1008 of the A7V motherboard, then I flashed the new Bios, 1009. Now I canīt restart my compyuter because, when i do that, it doesnīt recognizes my HD that is in the ATA 100.

    well first of i hae the A7A board and it told me that the 1009 was for my MB not yours.


    did you use the flash program that came with the MB?


    if you did and you still have a computer screen(whitch i dint hae anything at all whe it messed up my computer)

    you can undo that flash and go back to 1008

    Well, the 1009 is for my mb, A7V, i saw this at Asus site.
    I donīt have any doubt about that.
    I still use my computer almost withou problems. Only when I need to reboot is that the problem occurs.
    The computer wonīt find any HD on the ATA 100 and since my HD is connected to that, The computer will ask for a system disk.
    I used the flas program that i downloaded at Asus site. Itīs name is "Asus Update".
    I canīt reflash the old bios back because the program says:
    "you're trying to flash an older bios. if you sure you want to do this, you must flash under DOS". And I hate DOS

    You don't have to use the asus program. Just do like it said and us dos. Its not especially diffiult, just get yourself a Win 98 boot disk and have at it. No big deal!
