Before flashing the BIOS there was:
Award BIOS v4.51 PG
Chipset Via Apollo Pro Plus
I tried the first upgrade with awdflash and file 56VAF123.BIN which seems to be the wrong one. Afterwards I could boot from floppy and after inserting a different card I could also use the monitor.
When booting it tells me now:
Award BootBlock BIOS 1.0
BIOS ROM Checksum error
When now trying to upgrade with AWD789 or AWD812 and the boot file W6153VA2.exe I recieve always the message: ''System was not a new AWARD BIOS version! Please update ROM BIOS first...
Also using uniflash and same boot file without any success only error message is different:
File size does not match flash ROM Chip size.
RomBase:FFFC0000, memory dump at FFFC0000 ->(96256C2D)
Is there any change to get the MOBO back to life? What did I do wrong except using the wrong BIOS file?

You are correct! It works fine except the on board graphic card isn't recognized,but this should be no major problem.Rainbow wrote:It's MS-6153VA. Download the correct BIOS (according to your board version) from http://www.msi-computer.de, then UNPACK IT and flash the 256KB file inside.
Sorry for the trouble I've caused and many thanks for the quick response and help.
