Re: Unable to access bios thru del or Fxx touch

Sounds like a fun project. You already thought of uses for these little monsters?

Re: Black Screen after Flashing Bios

Your current CPU needs F20 bios AT MINIMUM to function

I suggest you try and find/borrow a CPU that is supported by the F1 BIOS.

Re: Looking for a bios for my ICL C4/33

JET systems changed its name to Galaxitech which was then merging with All-In-One Systems. They exist until today: https://aios.be/ you might try to send their support an email, perhaps these files somehow survived. If they did, let me know, I'd be more than happy to host them.

Converting Intel .bio files into AMI or Phoenix bios files

Not sure if this has ever been tried before and/or documented before. I want to try and convert bioses from the socket 4/5/7 era into .rom files. There must be a way of stripping the headers from the chunks and combining them into a single file.

Anyone?

Re: Looking for BIOS upgrade for old Packard Bell system

http://gunkies.org/wiki/Windows_NT On the i386 the maximum memory supported is 64MB (which was common limitation of ISA machines back then). I have a gut feeling that a reasonably recent build of Linux will see all 128MB as will Windows 2000. In the mean time I am hunting down the bios update for yo...

Did you do a "reset bios to defaults" + "save and exit" after the flash?

Re: How do I reset Aspire E5-571G Insyde BIOS supervisor password?

1) I think they want proof of purchase as well. The reason is this: even though you may be a totally honest person trying to make a living, we have no guarantee at all, everybody can be everybody on the internet. As such, we cannot assist with BIOS password issues or any other security circumventive...

Re: Computer still not booting after BIOS flash

I removed the battery and installed another one.
That another one was new, like "fresh out of the blister package" new?

I am clutching at straws too here. Is this a retail MSI board or an OEM one from a branded machine like Packard-Bell?

Re: Samsung 439 for Windows 10

replacing it with WiFi module from another manufacturer (eg Atheros AR5B225) or using an external USB WiFi module.
So either Atheros or Intel WiFi modules seem to work in Windows 10.
