Flashing latest BIOS

Recommended Posts

Just a couple quick questions. I'm trying to flash to the latest BIOS for the NF4 Ultra-D with the Diamond Flash method. When I search for nf4 ultra-d I see the latest BIOS is 3/10. But I clicked this "latest BIOS" link thing and it took me to "NF4-DAGF" which has a BIOS dated 6/13. So what is DAGF and can I use that BIOS?

Also when I put in the diamond boot floppy it said "starting windows 98" or something like that. That's when I got scared and took the floppy out and rebooted and came here for help. It is supposed to say that right? Or did I get the wrong version? That was the 3/10 one btw.

 

thanks for help :angel:

DAGF is the lower-end NF4 motherboard made by DFI. Sounds like diamond flash image is pointing you in the wrong direction. I don't think you can use that BIOS on an Ultra-D.

The boot disk saying starting Windows 98 is fine. Windows 98 is the last of the DOS based Windows. It's just booting the DOS part, which is what you want, I believe. I personally use the bootable CD available in the BIOS Factory (which is hidden in this forum somewhere, but I'm too lazy to find the link for ya. just search).

Hello,

 

EDIT: already said above so Skip this bit.

The win98 thing is just the DOS loader that it is using, it is based on the win98 DOS OS.

Very safe :)

 

Dont flash it with the DAGF BIOS.

 

EDIT: I am not so lazy so here you go. ;)
