Plasma-Online suggests so but the Bios/PCB version indicator "MZ" is not shown at FIC - KBI6130 has MK or MR

Might be a very special version for Compaq/HP or similar companies

It's seems to be a special version for Compaq with support only from Compaq - FIC Bios does not work !

Please have a look at your mainboard and tell us model number and revision number !
Have you lookde at Compaq ? > Mybe they have a newer Bios

No that is not going to work. Compaq has done something horrible to their version which trips our standard patch for >32GB support so we'll have to try another method.

Please have a bit more patience.

:lol:

apple_rom is the nickname of the person writing the patch. Any 6.x version of awdflash should work, you can even use the one from the compaq Rompaq disk.
