What is a BIOS?
chip
*BIOS is an acronym that stands for Basic Input Output System.
*The BIOS is responsible for booting your PC by providing a basic set of instructions.
*The BIOS performs all the necessary tasks that need to be initiated at the initial start-up time: POST (Power-On Self Test, booting an operating system from FDD or HDD). In essence, it is necessary to upgrade the BIOS on your PC in order to maintain or inevitably obtain compatibility with the PC industries latest hardware, software and operating systems.

The BIOS
chip
Ensures that the mother board works properly. This large board holds all the devices, so we recommend keeping it updated at all times. Through this operation you can add supports for new peripherals. Boards made after 1994 usually allow updating by software (Flash Bios), but for those prior to that date it is necessary to replace the chip of the bios. Updating is a delicate, dangerous operation. If it is not done correctly the mother board may be made useless. Never interrupt the operation once it has started. It is also possible to update the bios from other devices such as graphics cards, modems or network cards. In the case of the last two, if the operation is not successfully completed you can reinitialize and start again; however, if there are problems with the graphics card it is possible that nothing will be seen on the screen after reinitializing the computer
Updating a BIOS?
chip
Note: It is only possible to create these disks under Microsoft's Windows.
  • Updating the Bios is a delicate operation and is usually done in a DOS environment, but with some manufacturers, (for example: Abit) have created their own Windows GUI environment to update some of their motherboards Bios.
  • Creating a start-up disk: Insert a New 3½ blank floppy diskette into your "A" floppy drive.
  • Open your Desktop Windows Explorer and click your mouse's right side button while hovered over the "A" drive icon in Explorer.
  • Select the "Format" option in the next appearing menu. Be sure that "Copy System Files" is chosen and then click "Start" to initialize this process.
  • Your new start-up disk is now ready.
  • Copy your new Bios Flasher file and the Updated Bios ( usually a *.bin file) to the same floppy as well.
  • Be sure your systems present Bios is setup to boot up the system from the "A" floppy drive first then, Insert the floppy disk you created and Reboot your system.
  • Type in at the prompt CD A:\ and click "Enter", then...
  • Type in "dir" at the A:\ prompt. "A:\dir" This will display the floppy directory contents.
  • Locate your flash program on the drive, Usually the *.EXE file you copied onto the disk.
  • At the A:\ prompt type in *.exe, Substitute the (*) for the name of your *.EXE flasher program to start the Bios Flashing process. Follow procedures exactly and DO NOT INTERRUPT THE PROCESS.
  • After completion...Reboot and make the necessary changes in your new Bios updated settings.

hotMUST READ!!!
IMPORTANT DOCUMENTED INFORMATION FOUND ON FORUM FOR UPDATING ALL ABIT-KT7 MOTHER BOARD CPU's

This information is being supplied "as is" to all owners of an ABIT-KT7/KT7-RAID Motherboard. This information explains how you can update your ABIT-KT7's CPU from a maximum size allowed of 1.4Ghz to a (Athlon TBred XP2100 OEM) which is a 1.7Ghz. Now, if your familiar with ABIT's KT7 "Softmenu" BIOS setting menu then let me explain further about this new CPU that will allow you to set your "softmenu" up to run a 1.7Ghz CPU at a whopping 2.3Ghz @ a voltage rate of 1.7v with no mods which is lower then default of 1.75v. If this is sounding confusing or unreal to you let me reassure you that it works and is incredibly stable plus 100% compatible. I am running one now after replacing my old 900Mhz Athlon. It works great in WinXP at 2.3Ghz/1.7v @ average temp of º98F. Since I run a duel boot system with win98se, I had to back mine to a 2.0Ghz/1.65v because win98 seems to get confused somehow as it loads, But it has started and ran on it before at the full speed. An OEM XP2100 Athlon Tbred CPU is priced around $54.00 and if this is too much to spend to upgrade a board that was thought to max at 1.4Ghz then I suggest that you do not download this forum documented chat I captured that shows several members explaining in detail how simple it was to do. It was actually humorous to read as I watched the entire forum of KT7 owners rush to buy these CPU's and come back happily amazed at the awesome speed increase for practically nothing. Anyway, I am posting this document for all you KT7 owners. I suggest you read it and if you don't believe it or understand it...READ IT AGAIN! until you do and I guarantee, you will be calling Newegg.com and ordering your Athlon 2100XP that day. line
Flash Update Systems BIOS
Complete archive of up to date tools, utilities, loaders, tutorial links. Also Flash loading a High Point Raid BIOS too!
How do I flash the BIOS?
After your finished downloading or visiting here... head over to our system tuning page for more in
depth system help, calibrating, tuning, video monitor calibrating and speeding up internet connections.
  • Method #1
  • ABIT have recently released a reliable and tested Windows-based BIOS flash utility called Flash Menu . This application runs from within Windows and will automatically download, verify and then flash your machine to the latest BIOS version from within Windows. This process is extremely simple and is now our recommended means of updating your BIOS. After flashing the BIOS, Windows reboots, and all you need do is hit Del to enter the BIOS setup menu and set the correct options. All recent motherboards, including the DiGiDice SFF, are supported.
  • Method #2
  • If you are not running Microsoft Windows then you should follow the steps below in order to update your BIOS. If you follow them exactly you should experience no problems. Do not skip or modify any step.
  • In order to flash update the BIOS, you will need a floppy disk or bootable CDROM containing the the following:
  • DOS without any memory management drivers installed. I recommend you use the DrDOS 7.X boot disk designed specifically for BIOS flashing available on the downloads page or www.bootdisk.com
  • The BIOS *.bin (or *.b00 or *.b01) file to which you wish to update. The previous BIOS *.bin file (just in case you wish to flash back!)
  • Version 8.64 of the AWDFLASH.EXE utilities Listed Below.
  • Optional: ABIT supplies a file called RUNME.BAT with their BIOS releases which calls ABITFAE with the BIOS filename. You can put this on the floppy disk if you wish, and then instead of Step 6 below, type "RUNME".
  • Note that ABIT often supplies their BIOS files as executables (eg. KR7_WW.EXE). You will need to run this executable (which is a self extracting Zip file) to get the BIOS binary file and possibly also AWDFLASH.EXE, ABITFAE.BAT and the optional RUNME.BAT. You may also encounter BIOS distributions in *.zip files, in which case you must first extract the zip file using WinZip.
  • Shut down the OS properly, then turn the machine off.
  • Restart the computer with the DOS diskette in the floppy drive or CDROM in the CD. If you are using a CD image, you can either edit the CD image before burning and insert the Bios and flash utility on the CD, or you may be able to boot off the CD and run the flash tool from your hard-drive. Note, this second option will only work if your hard-drive is formatted with FAT, not NTFS.
  • At the prompt, type DIR to check the files on the disk. Assuming all the files in Item 1 of this list are present, go to the next step
  • At the prompt type ABITFAE filename - where filename is the name of the *.bin or *.b00 file you are using. (If you installed RUNME.BAT, you can simply type RUNME instead)
  • The utility will ask you to confirm a number of things, and will then automatically flash the BIOS with the correct parameters. Once it has finished go to the next step.
  • Press F1 to reset, then immediately press DEL to go into BIOS, then Go into CPU SoftMenu III to adjust your CPU speed and voltage (please make sure the CPU voltage matches your CPU specs)
  • Set up any other BIOS parameters you required (remember you will need to redetect your hard disks!!)
  • Remember that if you need to clear your CMOS with the jumper on the motherboard, you will need to reset the computer's clock! Save and Exit and You're done.
  • For a detailed discussion of flashing the Award BIOS, We recommend the AWARD Flash BIOS Upgrade Guide at X-Bit Labs.
How do I embed or update my motherboard's BIOS
  • The embedded motherboard BIOS we prepared above will update the Highpoint BIOS. check the documentation with each BIOS file.
  • Occasionally, motherboard BIOS releases lag behind Highpoint's releases and you may then wish to embed the Highpoint BIOS within the motherboard's BIOS like we have done for you. Using a tool developed by AWARD called cbrom (see below) makes it possible to embed the latest Highpoint BIOS into the ABIT BIOS releases. I recommend you don't try this unless you have a BIOS Saver with which to rescue your machine
    if a problem occurs!

    The steps are actually quite simple:
  • Copy the desired Highpoint bios into a directory
  • Copy the motherboard's BIOS into the same directory
  • Boot into a clean DOS environment
  • CBROM207 MOBOBIOS.BIN / PCI HIGHPOINTBIOS.BIN
  • Use CBRom207 as follows:
  • MOBOBIOS.BIN is the name of the file of the motherboard BIOS, and HIGHPOINTBIOS.BIN the name for Highpoint's BIOS. (PLEASE VIEW CBROM's DOCUMENTATION INCLUDED WITH THE CBROM DOWNLOADS.)
