So yeah…you know when you’re an engineer you don’t read the manul? yeah…that’s totally true. A few days back i was having raid issues with Windows Server 2008 on a new box so i updated the bios simple enough. But then i was having all sorts of issues, the floppy drive wouldn’t work. I couldn’t enter the actual bios to change settings, windows seemed to work okay but then it was blue screening randomly.
Well finally i realized, I flashed the wrong bios version onto my motherboard. And as i before mentioned the floppy wasn’t working…so the situation seemed hopeless at best.
Solution: Nero boot CD with the correct bios on it, and command line like a mother. If you need more detail i can post but just comment and you’ll get all you want.
Needless to say don’t flash the wrong bios you won’t like the experience that follows.
