Okay great - thanks again Rainbow.

I like the SYS A: method, and I'll just save both the new & old bin files right on that floppy too, and save the floppy for a rainy day that hopefully will never come.

thanks,
have a good day,

config.sys & autoexec.bat - what's the preffered way to-

When one is doing a flash and the instructions want you to be sure that the config.sys & autoexec.bat are not running - and so my question is what is the most preferred way to do this? Is it by just renaming each to old before you reboot and put it back later, or is it better to use your OS's boot d...

In 99% cases, new BIOS contains all fixes that were in previous version. "AWDFLASH bios.bin" should work in most cases. Okay thanks Rainbow for your input. I decided to give it a go, but I used the switches anyway since they came with the instructions along with the flash file I used. (i'm still cu...

The 32GB limitation should be fixed in all BIOSes later than 7/1999. I think that it's not listed there because it was fixed in a previous release. Hi Rainbow, Is it your experience then that newer bios upgrades all inclusive.. ..iow, would this Tza1101b.bin 11/3/1999 upgrade contain all the previo...
