[RESOLVED]REFLASH BIOS>> Help - I messed up...


Recommended Posts

I never flashed my bios before, so I tried it for the first time last night. I used DFI's Winflash and I think I may have selected the wrong bios version. When it restarts, I can get into the BIOS but not into Windows. I get the following error:

 

NTLDR missing

 

What did I mess up? Do I simply create a flash floppy with the original BIOS?

 

I'm not sure what version I had - the sticker says:

 

Pheonix Biox D888 (small but i think they are all eights)

Award 03/10/05

*the only other version I saw was Pheonix V.600PG

 

Sorry for the newbie question....

Update BIOS by using Winflash This was at the actual LINK...

Please download the following BIOS according to your motherboard version where applicable.

How to find your motherboard version?

If users do not have floppy drive in their computer system, there is an alternative option we provide here. The “Winflash” program allows users to update BIOS on the platform of Windows operating systems. Users only need to download the Winflash program files and the needed BIOS update flash named xxxxxx.bin, save them in any storage device windows system have access with. Run Winflash software and follow the instruction guide to update BIOS.

 

Those Relative links were about "HOW TO" flash the bios right there on the download page for that boards bios versions. FAQ's for using Winflash and Flashing from DOS are right there.

 

Always Clear the CMOS and upon REboot go in bios and load optimized defaults.

No. I didn't use the flash from floppy option (which I should have). I used their Winflash program. It's probably something in my BIOS that I didn't notice such as the HD. I will try a few things this evening (in 6 hrs).

 

Thanks all for your comments. Very helpful and I will hopefully have this resolved.

I get the same error message at work when I try to boot up with a floppy in the A drive. It might help to know this when trying to figure out how to fix your problem. Maybe you need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS.

glug.glug,

 

By far the nicest flashing utility I've used in a while is T-Mod's BIOS flash CD. It is virtually goof proof. Create a copy of his CD. Set your optical drive as the first boot device, load the CD and reboot. Select the correct BIOS (he makes this easy). I'd use the 623-1, 2 or 3 and if you're feeling real adventurous try out the 07/04-2bt or 2bta. All of these are decent BIOS's for the Ultra-D. After you flash your BIOS - MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE - you do a full and proper CMOS clear. Reboot and load optimized defaults. Reboot again and adjust appropriate BIOS settings for your hardware i.e. boot order, boot devices, onboard sound, lan etc.
