I was having problems with my slave harddrive not working, ti seammed to be a bios problem, so I went on a hunt for my board Maker(Jetway) and I found the model number(656B) of my board... i was sure i got everything I needed, i did a back-up of my current bios, then I flashed the the new bios, and reboot..... now I get nothing... no beeps no video(not even with a isa video card) the harddrives spin up, and the cdrom light flashes once. SO I setup a boot-block disk, but it doesnt seam to read the disk, no floppy light at all....
Also when I flashed the bios i got a warning about the boot block not matching or sumthing close to this, but I didnt pay it no mind sense I was sure I had the right board etc... and I did, so apparently the manufactur is missing sumthing. Below is the stats of my board/bios....
