12/29/2000-8363-686-maav363bc-00 looks like an Award bios string to me. :P Not a standard Award string admittedly but still Award.

Try using a different version of the Award flash utility there's a collection of them at the bottom of this page:-

Ahem, yes the ECS K7VZA does have an AMI bios but this is the Jama board which has an Award bios. :wink:

Now, if RAPPER is flashing the K7VZA bios to the Jama board then he probably will need an AMI flash utility but that sounds risky to me:-

JAMA MA-AV363B whic is some sort of relabeled ECS board, if you remove the type number sticker, the original type number will show up, for which we might be able to find a manual. Bioses have to come from JAMA.


Although Denniss disagrees:-

Should be a rebadged K7VZA Rev 1.x with KT-133
AFAIK ECS Bios is working on this JAMA-Version
