BE6-II v1.0 no BIOS backup taken...

After flashing the BIOS (to the latest version from 1999 version) things
seem to work fine apart from the fact I can't access CDROM drives when the
soundcard is installed. After taking it out, the drives reappear.
Unfortunately I don't have the backup - I was sure I said yes when the flash
program asked if I wanted to create one - but now it's not to be found
anywhere (?).
Is there a way to restore the previous version without having the backup? Or
is there a work around to the problem? Thanks a lot for any input.

Hi DeeDee:

Abit keeps a copy of all previous BIOS version available for download at
their website. I know you've already been there. You just click on BIOS
Revision History at bottom right on the download page for the latest BIOS.
It'll show all the BIOS revisions and what they update. A link to the right
of each for downloading. Here is the page:

http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/bios_revision.php?c...

The latest BIOS revisions are usually written to correct problems. It's
very rare that they create one like yours; it does happen. You may want to
try downloading the update one more time and try to install again. The file
might have gotten corrupted at some point.

Hope information helps,

Craig

just flash the previous bios but that is not the issue, I can assure you of
that. with the new bios installed, clear the bios with the jumper and then
set ALL of the IDE channels to Auto for detection and Auto for mode and
things should work.

It sounds like an irq problem specific for windows 98/95. Go to a
better OS and irq routing is applied. It works better.

How it should be dependent of bios version seems rather strange, but
it could be because the bios is suited for win 2k/xp.

I have a well working same version of be6-ll. It booots in windows xp
with the highpoint controller and everything is working fine.

best regards

Well. I forgot to tell the medicine: put the soundcard in another pci
slot.

cool... I used to have my sound card in slot 2 or 4, either one, with that
board and I did not have issues with that approach. I would either have a
SCSI card in 2 and a sound card in 4 or vice-versa...
