I downloaded the aflash utility, and the 1008 bios for this board, along
with the 1010 beta. (I'm currently on 1005).
Made the bootdisk as recommended, then followed the instructions to the
letter, but when I went to flash, it returned the error "Flash_Memory
Unknown".
Googled for it, found I may need flash.exe, tried this, it returns the same
error.

Is there anything obvious I'm missing? I'm assuming this board does support
flashing as they've released new(er) BIOS files for it...?

Try pflash2, and if that doesn't work, pflash. aflash only supports 2
MBit or larger Flash ROMs, pflash2 both 1 and 2 MBit types, and pflash
should be <= 1 MBit only.
