Hello, recently i've try to flash a bios chip on asrock 4coredual sata 2.
The original chip of the motherboard is pmc pm49fl004t(4 mb), the chip i try to flash, is a winbond w39v080fapz(8 mb)
I try to force flash with with uniflash ex: uniflash -force C21A -E bios.rom , but that code C21A is from another chip, totaly diferent at 12v.
So, my question is what code can i use with -force xxxx flash comands.I search the net and i dont find anything, and the chiplist dont help me to much.I need a code to work with uniflash, and it must be similar to my 8mb chip.


Other things i try.
afudos /ibios.rom .......rom file size incorect error apears.
afuwin...the same error

Chip is not supported by Uniflash 1.40, see http://web.archive.org/web/200806100617 ... rdware.htm

They seem to have taken over Uniflash development:
