what drivers not to load

Recommended Posts

i have read some threads on people having a stable system then adding a driver and having some bad issues. i was hoping to get some feedback on what not to load after i flash to the 623-3 bios (if i can ever get that to work, but thats another issue u can read about in bios factory). after i flash ill add my os and then start drivering up. thanks in advance. :D

sorry - no floppy drive. i dled DFI_BIOSROM.rar, i extracted it and get a 25.9 meg DFI_BIOSROM.rar archive. i unpacked this and get a DFI_BIOSROM folder containing 7 folders with .bin files. i went to folder 6 and with nero 6 i burnt a bootable disc with the N4D623-3.bin file on it. i had my cd rom set to boot first in bios. i inserted the cd and turned on. it says boot from cd. then it says caldera yadda yadda. the last line is EMM386: warning address line A20 already enabled. then nothing happens. that didnt work obviously so i dled http://indabasement.com/DFINF4/bios/N4D623-3.zip from this i got a rar file i extracted got awdflash.exe and and N4D623-3.bin, i burnt em as data files (bootable cd) with nero 6 and get the same thing - nothing. what am i missing here?

the file that pershoot made is an iso file that can be burned in Nero and is bootable


if you did not end up with a .iso then you either downloaded the wrong one, or did not extract it correctly.


Last I checked, Pershoot's instructions were pretty easy to follow, try it again (and read what he wrote carefully)

quick format (delete everything off the floppy)




unrar this, they are system files for a win98 bootable floppy


copy the bios file + the awdflash file to the floppy


boot with it








format a floppy (win2k formats floppies just fine)


download the Diamond Flash Image of the bios you want from dfi.com.tw


run the exe and it will create a bootable floppy with the bios flasher, bios file, and batch file to do all the work for you
