That thing didn't boot with 1200 MHz Duron (the slowest one I have in the moment) so I had to use the c't flasher to flash the chip... Put the chip on the board, switched the thing on and looked at the POST card. C1, C3,...1D... 26... YEAH! IT BOOTS!
OK, the BIOS needs modification as the Duron is recognized as Athlon 1200 but that can be easily done.
Hi, Sulbert thanks for the info.
I just wanted this to be a bit more clear
You have a second pc that has a flashboard of some sort, either isa, pci or ide. (Ive heard you can actually build one, somewhere...)
Then REprogrammed the original chip, or did you have a new chip that you programmed using c't flasher?
I also was curious if this would allow ALL of the Compaq boards that use the FIC AZ31 (UWAVE, UWAVE-2, UWAVE-3, UWAVE-R) to actually now utilise the K133 chipsets 133mhz speeds.
Compaq used only 100mhz on all except the UWAVE-3, but left the 100-133 mhz jumper.
Compaq also seems to have removed the multiplier jumpers also, well at least on the UWAVE, not sure about others...
Anywho thanks for your time.
