I have a dead A7A266. The BIOS flash failed with a run-time error during upgrade. Anyways, I need to try get this board back up and running. I was considering a hotswap with my ASUS P5A-B board, but my P5A BIOS is a 5v winbond w29ee10 chip. This is a 1M or 128k chip correct? (Still learning). Would it even be possible to hotswap this chip with the 2M chip from the dead A7A bios? I was considering trying a bootblock only update of the A7A chip in the P5A board in case there are addressing issues. Is the possible? Or is there any place you could refer me to in order to help me better understand what is involved in flashing hardware wise? Any help would be apreciated, thanks.
