Hi,

I am getting a Abit AV8 3rd Eye motherboard and a 90nm Winchester core CPU (AMD 3500+) but I have been told that i'll need to have the bios flashed to version 1.5 to allow the CPU to boot... and most have version 1.1 after being shipped.
How would I do this if I couldn't boot it? and how would you flash a bios?

Microdirect where I am buying it from, will not do it for me :(

Help will be greatly appreciated :)

Hi, thanks for that ardy89 :D

I know where to get that from, so if thats it, then all sorted :) Thought I'd have to buy a new chip or something like that!

It should automatically read from the floppy disc i'd guess?

Thanks for the help
