Hi there..
I just want to know how can i just save my bios to make a back up.
I tryed with AWD812.EXE like a normal upgrade, but i put a fake name at the input bios file...and after that i was asked if i want to save the curent bios...i said yes...and i named "oldbios"...but it was saved without any extension...*.awd or *.bin.
So..i have now a file called "oldbios" and it have 256K. Is the good one?
What extension should i put there?...or don't matter.

And just for my information....i tryed to search my bios on internet and i didn't found it. This is what is written in the lower part of the screen at boot.

08/13/2001 - I815E - ITE8870 - MS7057cc - 00

And in the upper part:

P6IPAT ver 1.1 08/13/2001

All i found is the producer..i think is Elite..but on theyre pages was nothing about it.
Some ideeas?

The extension does not matter. Award BIOSes usually have .BIN but it can be anything you want.
The board looks to be Matsonic MS7057C
