  3. Modding your Bios 1) IDENTIFIED YOUR MOTHERBOARD !!! 2) Go to first page in this threat and download your original BIOS. Read "Backup and Update Bios.pdf" (It is inside the the zip file just downloaded) 3) If your are running windows in you system, back up your current BIOS with Winflash. Store it in safe place ! 4) Made a bootable USB pen. (This link could help: http://www.bay-wolf.com/usbmemstick.htm ) 5) Use Notepad to made a document with this text inside: Awdflash.exe XX.bin /py/sn/cc/cd/cp/wb/r (Be sure that XX is the correct one for your Mobo) and named Autoexec.bat 6)Put inside the usb pen: a.- XX.bin (Download from the first page the modified Bios for your Motherboard) b.-Awdflash.exe (It is inside the zip downloaded) c.- Autoexec.bat file d.- The backup made it with winflash (awdbios.bin) 7) Shut down your system. 8) On start up, press the ESC key 9) Select (+) HDD, and then the USB pen. 10) DONT SHUT DOWN THE SYSTEM OR INTERRUPT THE PROCCESS until finish. 11) Once finished, Take the USB pen out. 12) Reboot again 13) If you get a message of CMOS failure, Dont Worry, Press Del and Load Optimal 14) Finally reboot again. To go back to the previos Bios, just change autoexec.bat with: Awdflash.exe awdbios.bin /py/sn/cc/cd/cp/wb/r Hope this could help others . Sorry for my English
  4. Newbie here. First of all, thank you for this amazing tutorial. My Mobo is the E/F 01 (First Release).I am really interested in the vanilla installation with the modified BIOS. Hopefully next week I will get a Vertex SSD and start doing tests. I´ll report results. Just a couple of things that maybe could help other people interested in flashing BIOS. 1)If you use Awdflash the correct syntax is: Awdflash.exe 01.bin /py/sn/cc/cd/cp/wb/r (without /i, this could be for Afudos) 2)For selecting the usb boot pen, on boot up press Esc key, select (+) HDD and then select the pendrive. One more time THANK YOU ! PD.- Sorry for my English.
