Okay,I got version 2.0 bios from Chaintech.Unzipped it and it has no extension.
Every BIOS I've seen has the .bin extension.This one doesn't. Anyway, I put it
on a floppy by itself,rebooted and hit ALT+F2 and nothing happened. It said
decompress awdflash from bios and that's it.What am I doing wrong.Thanks

You need the awdflash program on the floppy!

Boot to the a prompt and type the name of the program and it will load and
run

then give the program the name of the bios file

Kinda thought that was it,but some new boards have awdflash in the bios.
BTW,what about the file name with no .bin extension.

just type the file name with no .xxx extension - BTW I can never get the
alt f2 to work either - had to do it by floppy too.

Thanks.Did that.Now my mem speed isn't showing correctly. 333 instead of 400.
Got an e-mail from Chaintech.They said they'd fix it in the next BIOS.
