I have a barebones computer:
A7A266 Asus Motherboard with version 1004 Bios
Athlon 1.4 ghz chip / fan
256 Megs of DDR Ram
I am trying to flash the bios on the motherboard to give me better support for newer CPUs. Unfortunately I am totally stuck.
I boot off a floppy disk to DR-DOS. I got this boot disk from bootdisk.com. It was the recommended one for flashing bios. On this disk I also have AWFLASH.exe and AA261012.AWD.
AWDFlash starts up. I type in the AA261012.AWD and press enter. It says 'Please Wait' and then it seems to hang. It scans the floppy disk for a while and then it totally stops. I've waited about 5 minutes before giving up and rebooting. I have tried it several times with the same result each time. I even tried to run AWDFlash from the command line, but that didn't seem to make any difference.
One thing that concerns me is in the AWDFlash screen, there is nothing after "Flash Type" like in the picture at
