NF7-S BIOS Update Problem

I recently upgraded my hard disk to a DiamondMax Plus9 Serial ATA drive and have experienced extensive file corruption when used with my Abit NFS-S motherboard. I read that the SATA corruption problem has been fixed in a BIOS update so I downloaded the nf721.exe BIOS update from here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/abitweb/webjsp/english/mb_biosdr...

When I boot into DOS with a boot disk and run the runme.bat file I get the error:

“The programme file’s part number does not match with your system!”

I’m totally confused. I’m absolutely positive I have an NF7-S motherboard and the readme says that the NF7_21.BIN is for the NF7/NF7-S V1.0/1.1. I’m losing files rapidly here and I’m desperate to get the BIOS updated.

If anyone could suggest why I’m getting this error I’d be very grateful.

Thanks a lot

I think your mobo is version 2.0 which needs different BIOS update (rev.18 not 21)

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

You're completely right. Thanks a lot for reminding me. I'm in such a panic about the number of files being corrupted I'm not really thinking straight. I really wish I hadn't have formatted my old hard disk :) 

Thanks again for the help.
