I went to update my K8V BIOS via the alt f2 method.. found the file.. started erasing the BIOS then... flash aborted!
Of course now it's dead.. starts.. no beeps, HD and DVD fire up.. but no floppy. Read about the boot block method for AMI on this forum but floppy is dead.. I've reset cmos, taken the battery out..
I guess the answer is take it to the retailer to get it fixed, but wondering why the boot block didn't work for me.
Board is only a week old.. never had a failure on my Abit boards!!!
