I need the binary file for an AMIBIOS on a MSI motherboard with Model no. MS 6156BX. I already searched the manufacturer's web site but only found an EXE file. I am trying to order a new bios from Badflash.com and they need the BIN file.
A million thanks for the info. I will go for your suggestion. I will now order the bios chip and will let you know of the progress for future referrence of others who might have the same motherboard as I have.
Your good works will never go unnoticed. This is the second time you have responded to my queries. Now I have so much confidence in you. Again a big thank you.
After clearing the CMOS, I was able to get the details of my bios but still it cannot access the setup. The screen flashes bios data then turns off after few seconds. It goes to blank screen when I try to enter the bios setup (F2). I tried the bios from MSI but to no avail. Now I'm confused if I have the right bios. I have read in the Collected Wisdom that the standard MSI bios will not work with other system builders with MSI motherboard. My system is NEC GT250 containing the following bios details:
Bios - AMI (American Megatrend)
Additional info (the following were written on the motherboard):
MS 6156 ver 1.1 BX7
i440BX (Intel chipset)
Is there a bios that I can use to make my system work?
If yes, how can I get the BIN or the ROM from self-executing (EXE) bios file (as required by the Badflash.org that will provide me with the new chip)?
I hope I have alll the details above for you to help me. I would appreciate any help I could obtain.
