At the a: prompt I get an *invalid command or file name* message when attempting to flash my bios. The flasher file is named *awdfl779.exe* and the data file *v370at13.bin*. I read somewhere that the command at the a: prompt should read *awdflash v370at13.bin*. With a space between the h and v. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you for your help. Klaus
If the name of your flash program is "awdfl779.exe" then your command line will be "awdfl779 v370at13.bin" as you are trying to run the flash program. In DOS mode, to run a program, you must use the name of the program.
A big thank you to both of you for taking the time to help. I did manage to flash my bios and everything is working well. Unfortunately it did not solve the issue of the system only recognizing 32gig of my 60gig drive. I suppose in some instances it is impossible to teach an old motherboard new tricks. Again, thank you.

Hi Rainbow. The number sequence in your message match *excactly* what shows in my boot screen. Maybe its a good idea to admit at this point that I am at best a novice with this stuff. In any case as I remember it when I installed the drive I had to use two jumpers. One designating the drive as a master and another jumper putting a cylinder limitation on the thing. So after flashing the bios I removed the cylinder limitation jumper thinking that will give me use of all the space. It did not make a difference. Klaus
Just checked, all drives are on auto. Discovered something interesting though. I run Windows XP. Under *Disk Management* it identifies the drive as Disk0 55.91gb. But it also shows the disk partitioned as follows, C: 31.49gb, Unallocated 24.42gb. The point being I never partitioned the drive. Also, when I right click on the unallocated partition there is no *Delete Partition* entry as there usually is. In other words I cannot just delete the unallocated partition. Klaus
