This is my current BIOS ( (modded version A10)) installed in my Dell Dimension 4700 and what I'd like to do is change the BIOS version and date. I tried replacing the five "A10" (I left one A10 alone because it appears in older version that I looked at) and the date in the .hdr header file, fixed the CRC32 and tried flashing it but it won't do it and says it failed one or more consistency checks. Any and all help appreciated.

Edit: I should add that it's an Old Dell BIOS - Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A10. I thought it was going to work because when I manually replaced a CPU microcode, I basically did the same thing to the .hdr and the flash was successful (using the .exe created by the latest version of DCCU (3.1.1230)).
