THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! For this information. I know just enough to be dangerous. I clobbered my AMI BIOS trying to update and found your page showing that all may not be lost!

AMI: The AMI boot-block BIOS will look for a AMIBOOT.ROM file on a diskette. Copy and rename the correct BIOS file on the floppy and power up the PC. The floppy doesn't need to be bootable. You will see the PC read the floppy, after about 4 minutes you will hear 4 beeps, this means the transfer is done. Reboot the PC and modify the CMOS for your configuration.

I tried the above and it worked!! Although the 4 beeps happened within 30 seconds and I had to let the computer sit in the "off" mode for about 2 minutes and then, wow, my computer was restored almost to its original state. :D :D

I'm glad I found you :D :D :D
