I've been trying to update my bios, but i always get Boot Block saying "checksum error".
If I flash using awdflash790.exe (awdflash.exe will give me "unknown flash type"), i get red blocks (write file error) when it progams my bios. Is it normal?
My motherboard is Soyo 6ba +3, current bios revision 6ba3 2AA3.
I downloaded the bios update from www.soyousa.com, i'm sure it's the right one.

Anyway, the reason for updating the bios is because my current bios won't detect Seagate Barracuda 80GB harddisk. Will updating bios help?

Please help. Thank you
