  1. The way I've flashed the BIOS previously is to make two floppy disks - I format one disk as an MS-DOS boot disk, then put the AWDFLASH.EXE and XXXXXX.BIN files on the other disk. Boot the PC with the MS-DOS disk in the drive, once it's loaded and your sitting at the A: prompt, put in the 2nd disk with the BIOS file and flash program on, then just type in: AWDFLASH XXXXXX.bin /F Where XXXXX is the name of the BIOS file. I have no idea what all those arguments are for in the command you posted but they are totally unnecessary.
  2. Holy .!! It worked!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! When I looked at it, I thought there's no way this is gonna work, CAS1.5? No chance! But how wrong I was! There was a couple settings that didn't give me the option you specified e.g., only had 3120, not 3168 and there was another 2 that I just set to auto because the option wasn't there. I've not run any stability tests or anything yet but this is the farthest I've gotten with this RAM on this board so it looks good. I'm not sure if it was the different BIOS (someone else recommended this BIOS as TCCD friendly on another forum), or the timings, or a combination, but I'm very grateful in any case. Time to run Prime and have a play about now... :cool:
  3. I just picked up a DFI NF4 Ultra-D the other day and finally got round to installing it this afternoon. I spent around 4-5 hours trying to get Windows to install - kept blue-screening, or would get problems with the SATA drives/drivers. Eventually I got Windows installed and running fine by taking out my 2*512MB GSkill 4400 TCCD and replacing with a generic 512MB stick with Samsung TCCC. I've tried installing the GSkill again, both in the orange slots and the yellow slots but I keep getting BSOD when Windows starts to load - I've even tried it with one stick in slots 1 and 2 with the same result. I've run MemTest86 and no errors are found so it must be some sort of compatibility issue - my question is, how on earth do I fix it!?? Is there a common problem with this board and TCCD? I'm running everything at stock at the moment - the only change I've made is trying to run the ram on 2.7v instead of the 2.6v default. I've installed the latest beta bios after having my initial install problems (not that it helped with them any) - are there any bios' known to fix this issue, if indeed this is a common problem?? I've been on an Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe for over a year now and not had a single problem with it. As much as I liked that board, and the problems I've had so far with the DFI, I don't really want to have to go back to it - the thought of having to reinstall everything is extremely depressing!
