Since your name is FlashDude, I'm now real nervous. OK, Previous post concerning an AMD Duron BIOS chip (Award BIOS 6.00pg) that, on boot up, reads:
Award BIOS BOOTLOCK 1.0
(Then something about Floppy Drive A media)
Since I can't flash this the normal way, I heard about "hot flashing". Below is a link to the info site.
Please let me know - what's up?
...What exactly about floppy disk media? Does it request for one or search for media in the floppy disk drive?
Many modern, and some older BIOS are capable of having the BIOS CMOS reflashed, using a BIOS image file on a floppy disk inserted before you power on the system...
...The feature is implemented when occurances such as this happens - corrupted BIOS CMOS, or badly flashed BIOS. If you're BIOS is capable of being flashed this way, then you won't need to go through the trouble of hot flashing.
