I have a Olivetti Echos P120 Notebook with Phoenix Bios in a very rudamentary version and i want to have a bios by which it is possible to boot from cd-rom.
Thanks for help

If not, maybe the latest BIOS may support booting from CD.
Also, if you have one hard drive, you can assume the CD-ROM will be drive D. I am not so sure that this works, but you could try changing the boot order so that drive "D" rather than the CD-ROM shows as first in the boot order.

It works fine, but it has no overclocking support or CPU support over an XP1800 because it came from a MicronPC (Phoenix Bios)!Yes, it is possible if the on-board hardware is the same. However, you should really have started your own thread about this (I know the title of this one is rather generic). MSI are well-known for supplying the same board to OEMs who then put different BIOSes into them; though sometimes different chips can be fitted in the same space or chips may not be included. If the board has a socketed BIOS you have a fallback route....
I would like to flash it to the Award 2.8 version available from MSI, but I'm afraid of killing this board since I just bought it (and I'm cheap).
Has anyone ever changed bios brands like this before? The board is labeled perfectly, so I know exactly what it is...
