I got a PcCips m754lmr board. I love this board cause everything is on board, IDE, RAID, LAN, Modem, Audio, Video
It was working like a charm till I flashed it.
It became dead.
I used the amiflash /a bios.rom command line and it seemed to flash fine but the file on the floppy was corrupt and now it doesnt show anything on screen and WONT floppy seek for a backup bios. Ive tried holding control Home to force boot block and I cleared the CMOS. How long to i have to wait before it looks for a floppy. Im about to hotflash at a friends house but i want to fix it asap and on my own if possible and i dont want to send anything in mail. so what can i do

If Ctrl+Home does not work, the only way is to remove the chip and flash it somewhere else - some electronics shop or another board (hot-flash http://rainbow.ht.st/hardware/hotflash.html).
