I have the following bios:

BIOS Date: 08/22/97
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
BIOS ID: 08/22/97-i430TX-2A59IA2AC-00
BIOS Eval: Version VBS1.2 002 ATC-5040
Chipset: Intel Triton 430TX rev 1
Superio: SMC 67x rev 1 found at port 3F0h

And when I try to ugrade my bio with the command:

Awdflasch 5040v103.bin /py

I get the next error:

The program file’s part number does not match with you system

What do I wrong?
Do I use the right Bin file?
Can someone help me with this.

Thanks,

You are using the right .bin file. If the manufacturer changes the ID-string somewhat (they do at times) or they use a new bios kernel you will get this message. Use it like this

Awdflash 5040v103.bin /py /cc

and answer Y to the question.

Hi Erwin,

Sorry but the options you mentioned gave still the same errors?
Any other ideas?

If it says "do you still want to flash? Y/N", then type Y. If you get another error, please write down the EXACT error message.
