Confused on flashing switches.


Recommended Posts

Ok I've read several posts by RGone and come up with 2 sets of switches he recommends using.

/qi/sn/py/cc

 

or

 

/cc/cd/cp/sn/py/f/e/qi

 

Which one for the 914's??

 

And does the latter automatically re-flash?

 

Thanks..

Well this is RGone... and I do not understand your questions and I know of nothing in Dos that you have typed out that automatically reflashes anything.

 

But I do know you need to go here and take care of this before most of us get really interested in your questions. Strangely we are that way at times.

 

And use the top list of switches as you do not seem to know the why of the switches I use and how I make them all work. You are safer with the top set you listed.

/py = Program Yes

/pn = Program No

 

/sy = Save Yes

/sn = Save No

 

/sb = Skip BootBlock Programming

/wb = Write BootBlock ( Always Program BootBlock )

 

/cc = Clear CMOS Data After Programming

/cd = Clear DMI Data After Porgramming

/cp = Clear PnP ESCD Data After Programming

 

/LD = Destroy CMOS Checksum and No System Halt on Checksum Error at 1st Reboot After Programming

 

/F = Use Flash Routines in Original Bios for Flash Programming

 

/QI = Qualify Flash Part Number with Source File

 

/E = Exit to DOS Prompt After programming

 

/R = Reset System (Reboot) After Flash Porgramming

 

/cks = Show Updated Checksum

 

/Tiny = Use Less Memory (The complete bios image is not read into memory before the flash starts)

 

/nbl = No Bios Lock (Overrides manufacturer lock string protection)

 

For a normal flash the command line of;

 

Awdflash ????????.bin /py /sn /cc /cd /cp /LD /E

 

will take care of everything including the equivalent a CMOS clear except the time

will not be dorked. You can change the /E to /R if you want to automatically reboot

after the flash completes (scares the crap out of people lol).

 

After the flash go into Bios Setup on the first reboot after the flash, load optimized

defaults, make the setup changes you want, then hit F10 to save and exit. The

new bios checksum will be calculated and stored at the save. The new DMI data

and ESCD data pools will be rebuilt and saved after initial post/memory check at

the reboot.
