I cant flash my bios!!!

Postby danman14 » Sat Aug 31, 2002 11:02 am

I'm almost positive i have the proper .bin file for my award bios, but when i try to flash it, it says "file size does not match" or something like that. I have a Pine TL-ZX31 motherboard with an Intel 440zx chipset. I have a feeling the problem might be the version of the awdflash program i have, but I dont know where to get the right version, because Pine doen't even have one on their site! Anyway, if someone could tell me what's going on or provide me with a better awdflash verion, (i have been looking for v5.00 but i cannot find it) then it would be greatly appreciated.

File size do not match means the file you want to flash is too small or too big to fit into your Flashrom Bioschip .
You either have a 128KB Bios and a 256KB file or vice versa .
Or your Bios was corrupted while downloading and is a little too small or too big .
Check for correct model number of your board and redownload the biosfile !

128KByte is 1 Mbit
256KByte is 2 Mbit

Check what bioschip you have before flashing!!!

Why not use Uniflash?

Why not use Uniflash to write to your BIOS chip? It's a great flash utility, it may do the trick for you.
