AWDFLASH

Why do you hate AWDFLASH ? I think it is the best way to flash their BIOSes :-)

AWDFLASH

Or did you try to use UNIFLASH and did it work ? Maybe Award BIOS was updated so it does everything by itself...?

AWDFLASH

Better is looking at source code - I have disassembled awdflash only up to 6.28, so I don't know if it has changed in newer versions... For example AWDFLASH 6.28 has 9 functions that are executed if AWDFLASH is executed from BIOS. Data are accessed directly through INT13 interface and not using usua...

AWDFLASH

AWDFLASH has special code that checks if it is loaded from DOS or from BIOS without OS, I think UNIFLASH doesn't have it. :-)

AWBM

Sorry for not answering you, I've been out for 3 days. The file you sent me is AWBM format, which can't be 'converted' to BMP just by editing it - you must use some utility. If there isn't any, I'll try to write one when I have time... But try looking for some utility that converts EPA logo ver 2. (...

maybe you could try hooking interrupts if it works; you can read CMOS map from BIOS, the best thing would be to find CKCMOS utility somewhere, which scans BIOS and finds conflicting CMOS addresses and free addresses; but there is usually only few bytes free in CMOS... and I don't know anyone who has...

AWBM

Maybe you can try to look if there isn't any program that converts AWBM to BMP. There is a description of AWBM format somewhere on the internet. Some people call it EPA version 2.0... There should be something like AWBMREAD which accepts only files with EPA extension, so maybe Rainbow was right that...

backup

It is possible to back up your firmware on most of drives, but you must write your own program to do it. Most of flashers verify if firmware was flashed successfully after flashing, so they read the firmware and compare it. But there are some drives that don't allow you to read their firmware and do...

format

I think that 256 color logos are saved as normal BMP with 2 differences: first 2 bytes are 00,00 instead of 'BM' and order of lines / columns (one of them) is inverse... So edit the first 2 bytes with some hex editor and flip the image in Photoshop. 16 color logos are stored in different format (AWB...
