  1. The key was you have to use juniper fb
  2. I tried both pin 1 and 6 and 5 and 6 but no luck so I believe it needs new a new reprogrammed bios chip or both or a ride to the scrapyard.
  3. Many thanks for the tips and sorry for the late reply it has been a bit crazy here so I have not had the time to do anything yet. Hmm 5 and 6 instead of 1 and 6, maybe the author of that thread wrote the wrong number. Anyway that is just as you say much easier so now I only have to find out how they number the pins on this chip. I believe there is a small mark in one corner of it so if anybody can point me in the right direction to find the info or know how it is please tell. It would be so super cool if I can bring it to life again without having to solder of the chip and replace it. Edit: If it is this chip in the link under here I am not sure if 5 and 6 are the right pins looks it could be 1 and 6 since the first pin is CS# which = chip select and 5 is SI/SIO0 which = Serial Data Input (for 1 x I/O)/ Serial Data Input & Output (for Dual Output mode) but I do not know nothing about this so if somebody could take a look would be very helpful. https://www.macronix.com/Lists/Datasheet/Attachments/7370/MX25L6406E, 3V, 64Mb, v1.9.pdf
  4. Oh I did that many times but it does not work on this mobo so that´s why i´m gonna try this third method I found. Method 3, which explains to short/jump/bridge pins 1 and 6 on the M_BIOS chip to kick off a routine installed in firmware which reflashes a corrupt M_BIOS with the contents of B_BIOS, worked wonders for me, for which I'd like to thank the OP. I had eliminated all possibilities other than the motherboard, and was about to RMA the board (which entails hefty shipping charges not to mention losing the board for a few weeks) when I discovered this thread and got Method 3 to work when nothing else would. HOWEVER … at first I couldn't get it to work, despite trying a handful of times. What finally did it for me was when I stopped paying attention to the specific instruction of letting go of the pins when the power ON single beep is heard : on my board (a GA-H97-D3H) I had to KEEP HOLDING THE TWO PINS FOR 5–10 SECONDS after the initial beep before being rewarded with this pop-up message on my display : ❝ ====== DUALBIOS ====== The main BIOS is corrupted. Press [ENTER] to recover the main BIOS from the backup BIOS.             ❞ It may depend on the board, or maybe if the OP sees this he might know why … but if you have a dual BIOS board and method 3 didn't work for you and you're out of options, try it again but keep holding pins 1 and 6 with a steady hand for at least ten seconds after the initial beep, see if that doesn't do it for you. Did for me.
  5. Thanks for trying to help me out. I found a couple of chip myself too that looked the same but the two last lines of text are hidden behind that paint so you cannot tell if its the right one. Maybe its a chip from one "family" so they all would work though. I´ve seen reports on a way I never tried to get the backup bios to kick in so I´m gonna try that first. They say if you loop/hold a metal wire between pin 1 and pin 6 and do some other stuff I forgot now (was late last night) the backup bios might kick in. Maybe I´ll do a youtube livestream to this thread when I work with it.
  6. e Does anyone know what bios chip it is theres a drop of paint on a part of it so I cannot see. I am going to try to fix it again got a hot air gun for soldering now just cannot read what it say on the chip.

    macOS Mojave - It's out!

    I am sorry but I have seen no real advantage with any of the updates since I don`t know Mountain Lion maybe. To me all the new stuff is cosmetic and good old computers are getting useless cause sometimes stuff ends upp you cannot even use them on the internet any longer. I use my computers for music, video, paying the bills and just general internetsurfing like watch youtube videos etc etc. I still have some older computers that still can handle 20+ channels of audio four monitors etc etc but cannot access the internet cause to make them run newer OSes I have to stop using some programs I need. This OS update hysterica is just for making more money not making things better for real.
  8. Maybe the easiest way is to use Davinci Resolve instead, I never had any problems with it and there is a free version which is supergood. My mobo is a ga z270x gaming 5 though so there might be a differens between them.

    Please, please, don't go

    So basically we can blame it on who/what? Some undefined people coming in to the USA and steal jobs from who? Or is it the beggers here in my town i Sweden we can blame for all the bad stuff?
  10. Nostalgia, I picked up a used GA EP35-DS3 and hooked up an old hdd I had from "back then". I love it but its hard to use it on the internet today cause of this constant OS update loop. It still works very good for making music though. This is a thanks for the deal video to the guy I bought it from

    Intel CPU hardware vulnerability

    Yes and all this time everything worked and only a few % of consumers worldwide ever had any problems at all from this. So what changed so rapidly? And the question still remains why should consumers end up with the bill for something they should have known from the start and why are we the consumers responsible for criminal activities. We have a police force for that in pretty much every country in the world that we pay for via income tax so this is not our problem.

    Intel CPU hardware vulnerability

    If you do not update your os how are they going to be able to change anything in your computer at all? Every hackmac owner have turned autoupdate of so we should be safe from this stunt. Till now computers have been working as expected and promised and it has been fairly unusual that criminals did break in to our systems. Have they seen or do they expect these activities to rise rapidly or whats the deal here. If someone breaks in on my property it is a case for the police not for the consumer to fix. Till now I have only updated when it was necessary like when a program I wanted or needed demanded for a newer os this will stop now. And Apples endless update loop of os x should have stopped years ago. For every one of the versions there has been at least 8 more updates! Why the hell dont they just make the stuff ready before they release it that is just stupid like making a car and forgetting the steeringwheel.
  13. They should fix what they already released before they do anything at all. Imagine a car maker having to come up with fixes for their cars like 12 times a year and model to avoid pepople getting hurt while driving them.

    The macOS 10.13 is coming...

    They should finnish the os x versions before they release new ones but they never do that and every new version has round 8 updates. So why the heck they release them before they are completely done with them is stupid. My guess is they try to force customers to buy new hardware repetedly. I have not seen any improvements at all since I started with hackintoshing in the leopard days. Well maybe snowleopard was a little cooler but thats it. Same on the ios side and my iphone and ipad constantly looses functionality and acts weird. These are products I paid some hard earned money for and that used to work supergood but not any more now they suck and for every update they suck even more.
