Re: how to force boot from bootblock

Did you check the Motherboard User Guide how to invoke BIOS Recovery? The Bootblock must be still there.

Re: Randomly sudden death, not again...

The "File transfer between drives" and "ADSL wire plugged" symptoms could be coincidence and misleading you. Can you please make sure all connectors are plugged properly and there are no vibrations in the system while it is in use?

Re: uniflash "file size does not match Rom size"

Both the BIOS ROM and BIOS Flash Update Tool, you should use the one that is exactly meant for your board. And exactly from your maker's site.
for example, Intel mother board from ASUS: Dont use BIOS ROM or Update Tool from Intel site. Use the one from ASUS

Good Luck!

Re: Help my IntelĀ® Desktop Board D975XBX2 has died

Hey Trebor, from what you describe it is clear that the Board you use comes with EFI BIOS! Which means, removing CMOS battery will only clear the RTC time. This means in the next boot the time will be reset to default. In these latest Intel motherboards, I guess you need to use a baseboard jumper to...
