:( With @bios I´ve flashed my GA8-IPE1000 under WinXP and after a restart I only get an error-message "Award BootBlock 1.0"... "Scanning BIOS Image in Harddrive.". Shortly after it reads: "Could not find BIOS Image on Harddrive or Diskette". And that´s it. Maybe I was to stupid, because I used it with an NFTS Drive, now I changed the Filesystem to FAT32 with another PC via PQ Magic 8, but still nothing. I can´t get the floppy drive to work with this "Alt F2" thing, and the BIOS won´t accept any floppy drives at all to look for the correct bios file. Please, any ideas?
