I have an evga 680i motherboard (I know how many problems they have had, i am just trying to make it work :D ) and i tried updating the bios to the new version P23. Everything appeared to go correctly until i rebooted. Then I get to Boot Block and it says it is looking for awdflash.exe.
Thanks to this forum which is amazing, i made a floppy with awdflash.exe and my bios file EVGAP23.bin and and autoexec.bat file which contains the line

AWDFLASH.EXE EVGAP23.BIN /py /sn /cc /cd /cp

The Disk also has some system and config files on it.
Then i got to the screen where it says at the top

AwardBios Flash Utility V8.23E

Flash Type -

File Name To Program : EVGAP23.bin

Message

So it appears to be reading the floppy drive and it finds the file, i just do not have keyboard support to hit enter or y/n.
Should i try uniflash?
Am i missing files on the floppy or is my bios permanantly fried.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

EDIT
Hopefully this will clarify what my issue is.
First it will load this screen.

at this point i have keyboard usage and can press enter for it to try and load the system disk
so i insert the floppy with these files
awdflash.exe and my bios file EVGAP23.bin and and autoexec.bat file which contains the line

AWDFLASH.EXE EVGAP23.BIN /py /sn /cc /cd /cp

The Disk also has some system and config files on it.

It then reads the floppy and a couple of seconds later this screen pops up

at this point i lose keyboard usage and i am stuck on this screen
i have left it on for half an hour just in case it was flashing the bios but to no avail it is on the same screen
again thanks for your help and any ideas are greatly appreciated
