I have an Asus A7M266 mb and wish to update my bios so I can run an Athlon XP processor. I have flashe my bios several times in the past but now for the first time my os is Win 2K and I don't know where to begin.
Can I make a boot disk for Win 2K? Do I flash my bios using the Award flash utility? Would appreciate as much help and detail as possible. Thanks

1) visit http://www.bootdisk.com

they have a selfextractor that will create a clean boot diskette for bios flashing (the drdos 7 one).

2) get the bios update file:
http://cgi.asus.com.tw/cgi-bin/dl.asp?f ... 261006.zip
and a flash utility:
http://cgi.asus.com.tw/cgi-bin/dl.asp?f ... lash22.zip

you need to unpack both files with winzip or similar.

3) now go here:
http://www.asus.com.tw/inside/flash_mb.htm

you can skip the creation of the bootdisk, you made one already in step 1), read the procedure carefully.
