I have a MSI MS-6117 motherboard which originally came with AMI BIOS. Well, on MSI's Website, it stated that you could switch to Award BIOS using the flash utility. Being displeased with AMI bios :evil: ....I tried it. The flash process went perfect, cept now when I boot, it comes up to the screen showing the Energy Star logo, all the numbers for the board, but my processor shows up as a -MMX 175??(note:there is nothing in front of the -MMX) Can someone help me out? :oops:

You should have used the lates Award Bios for the 6117 not the oldest one
Latest is 2.5
Latest AMI is 2.0
