Hi,

I have a Tyan Trinity 510 (S2266) motherboard.

I had a flash fail and now a screen comes up and says:

Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0
Copyright (c) 2000, Award Software, Inc.

BIOS ROM checksum error

Detecting floppy drive A media ...
INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

I did and it said:

Microsoft(R) Windows 95
(C)Copyright Microsoft Corp 1981-1996

A:\

So, I took my BIOS image and tried a re-flash:

A:\flashv73 2266v104.bin /py/sn/f/cc/r

Then the program starts and I get this:

FLASH MEMORY WRITER V7.3
"System was not new AWARD BIOS version!"
"Please update ROM BIOS first..."

Then I'm returned to an A:\ prompt.

Has anybody heard of this? Any suggestions? Thanks guys.
