If it at least tries to access the floppy, then you could try the AMIBOOT.ROM trick explained in our FAQ (main site).

thanks for the replies, it doesnt access A:/ on boot, and uniflash doesnt support the chip i want to. any other options ?

What chip do you have there?

ahh perhaps im wrong, the mobo is a microstar make, ms-6154
that would mean the chip is an ms-6154 right ?

For hotflash, you need another board with chipset that UniFlash supports. The Flash ROM chip (the chip that contains BIOS) must be supported by UniFlash too.

hey, the messed up bios is W29C020C-90B. i have a workin board with W29EE011-15 bios. would it still br possible ?

The older board has 128KB chip only (W29EE011) - but some of these boards can also support 256KB ones (like the W29C020) - try it and you will see. If you get verification error in half of the chip then it does not support 256KB.

i was wondering why that verification error appeard, hmm atleast i know i can possibly fix this situation.

hey i found a mobo with AE29F2008 = Winbond W29C020(C) | 256KB, yet i still get a verification error in the end
oh and what does bootblock mismatch mean ?
i did write bootbloc to file, and here it is

i am now tryin to use a board with at290c02,
when i do flash bios image file to flash rom, it says mismatch bootblock. i choose to continue. uniflsh says last write status SUCESS.
if i exit and run uniflash again it says last write status NOT AVAILABLE.

It should be OK. The last write status is not saved anywhere in the chip - it just says if the last write operation you performed in UniFlash was OK or not.
You can try older AMIFlash from http://rainbow.ht.st/hardware/hotflash.html
. I have successfully flashed one W29C020C with this one although UniFlash didn't work.

Bootblock mismatch means :
The Bootblock(Emergency Bios) stored in the Chip is different with the one from the Biosfile .
Even if the flash was succesful you'll get Bios ROM Checksum Eoor or no Boot . > Use Uniflash > Advanced Tab > Flash including Bootblock !!
