No need to put windows on it. Just create a bootable disk of some sort and put the flash utility and the BIOS rom file on it and run it from the command prompt. You need to download the AMI flash utility.http://www.ami.com/support/downloads/amiflash.zip
I checked the CPU support for that board (they only list a p5GDC-V Deluxe) but it specifically says that to run that CPU you need 1007 (or later). So not sure. If your BIOS rev. is saying 1009 at this point it should work.
Ya, I thought it would have been good to go too. One thing I didn't think of, I can cur mini XP off the Hiren's disk, or Bart's as some know it as. My boss is perplexed also, so I don't feel too bad. Hey, thanks neighbor to the north, I think I'll just keep trying or deal with it when I have to reboot. Hopefully I won't have to reboot too often as it's going to be put into service as a WHS. Thanks for the link, I think you'll get the star.
