Good day all.

I am looking for help and advice regarding making a new custom bios for my Tyan Thunder K8SD Pro (S2882-D) motherboard.

The above motherboard has a build in Silicon Image SteelVine Sil3114CTU SATA Raid Controller.

From what I have read is that the ROM used for the Sil3114 is part of the main system bios.

The current Sil3114 rom is v5.0.64, but I am having some issues and would like to try and update the rom to v5.0.73.

Tyan Thunder K8SD Pro (S2882-D) v3.09 BIOS: ftp://ftp.tyan.com/BIOS/2882-D_309.zip
Silicon Image SteelVine Sil3114CTU Rom v5.0.73: http://www.siliconimage.com/docs/BIO-003114-x00_5073.zip

So can anyone please advice if this is possible, and if so, how I would go about doing this?

Thanks for your time.

Best Regards.
