Hi,

does this bios file
ftp://ftp.tyan.com/bios/2668_105.zip
have any problem,
because I get the error that it is unable to read the biosfile
2668v105.bin,
after starting the flashing procedure with flash.bat ...

of course I start the flashing procedure from a clean dos bootdisk
without config.sys or autoexec.bat

the other thing: why is the 2668v105.bin file dated with sept. 15 2004
while
the page says, that this release is from oct. 15, 2004?

flashing the bios with previous releases worked fine. my actual bios
release: 1.03

my hardware configuration:

iXeon 2.4 GHz dual-cpu with 533 MHz FSB
1024 MB ECC-DDR RAM
AC97 Realtek Sound and i82551 Ethernet (100base-tx)
3COM 3C590C Ethernet Adapter (10base-t)
Hercules Dynamite/128 (Tseng Labs ET6000 based) with 4 mb
Adaptec AHA-294x or AIC78xx pci Host-Adapter
Hauppauge WinTV-FM pci Adapter (848/878 chipset)
WD400JB-00ENA0 HDDs (3x): primary master, secondary master/slave
TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-R1312: primary slave

thanks in advance.

greetings,
walter

The bug was in the file; I should have seen this myself ;-)
