any ideas? HP now says it will be mid-end of week before they reply.
I've tried the /btvga but don't think it works the way I think it does.

any other known tools besides cbrom that might work for me?


UPDATE:
HP just sent me an new bios with 2.51 SIS vbios in it.
cool....

I'm sure you're right on version of cbrom. I've seen references to 2.20, but can't find a link. Do you know of one?

I've got the 1.09 award bios downloaded from hp, but never used cbrom to 'overlay' a new videobios with a different version. also, the zip file I downloaded that you 'ripped' out of the asrock bios, I'm not sure if it's valid...
