I'm trying to flash my ami bios. Now, I don't have any disks nearby so I tried to do this using several bootable DOS cdroms.
Most of the time when I try to run the flash tool, I get the error "16M/DOS Not enough memory available" or "This is not a 16M DOS Application".

Any idea how to fix this ?

    No, go to the OEM website for your MB.  Ensure you have the correct instructions/tools for flashing your BIOS.
