Hi,

Iam having M572 mother board with AMIBIOS release 12/16/1997 s.
On the chip it is mentioned as H.T M21186 C9748
I could not figureout the manufacturer.

Which is the BIOS chip compatible with M572 motherboard?

If any other information is needed kindly get back to me.

1) Does the BIOS chip on these motherbords have BOOT block?
2) If I use AMINF332.exe to flash the new BIOS will it program the entire flash or it excludes the boot block (if it has one)?
3) If Iam able to get an identical make BIOS chip (blank and new) and want to program using separate flash programmer what are the steps to be followed?

1) Yes
2) If Bootblock on chip is different from bootblock in new Biosfile it will be updated - to force Bootblock update enter Eminf332 /X and enable bootblock/NVRAM programming

P.S. : Please keep to one thread per mainboard !

Board supports 5V/12V chips - maybe a Flash Voltage jumper has to be switched
