I need to try the P10 version but I cannot find it through Intel.

Errors:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cannot upgrade Flash BIOS
Hanging at flash update
Error: "(H48): Invalid reserved string in flash image header."
Error: "(H01): The flash data image read from disk was found to be not valid."
Error: "Flash update was unsuccessful."

BTW: this is a Packard Bell A950-6x6

You can not flash Intel BIOS on Intel OEM board. It can be done using the recovery jumper (see the FAQ), but at your own risk.
Patched and tested BIOSes are at http://wims.rainbow-software.org

Thanks for the tip, I missed those in the FAQ, in the WIMS site...I will try the methods out and post my results in hopes that others can benefit.

If anyone else has any tips, please post them.

Thanks again.

4M4UE0X1.86A.0011.P10

Phoenix OEM codes (Intel = 86):
04 = Sony
05 = Micron
10 = Dell
11 = NEC
15 = Gateway 2000
17 = IBM
21 = HP
25 = Vobis
28 = Toshiba

I think you have 11 where it's 86 in the P10 version...

Thanks to those that at least thought about my dilemma, I found that I could edit the bios files using Hex WorkShop.

Thanks to EdWin and this site; I edited the bis files to be "11" instead of "86" in: 4M4UE0X1.86A.0011.P10

Thanks to all that replied and the mods for a great forum, you really helped me out, now I have a whopp'n Celeron 400 LOL!!
(still better than the PII 266 that it was...)

Yup, either that or use the recovery flash mode. You are also looking at the fantastic Intel logo screen on bootup then :D

Both methods will usually work with a few known exceptions (some Dell boards for instance).
