Juggernaut, I have been struggling with flashing BIOS without success. I cannot get acces to the .pdf file you directed me to as I do not have username and password to enter<BR>"vilpublic.fujitsu-siemens.com" site.<BR>Could you e-mail me the .pfd file to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Many thanks.<BR>The flashing proces stops at error 9Ch/9Dh and Phoenix data shows this as "Initialize Security engine". Is is possible that the BIOS is locked internally to prevent flashing? Manual Siemens/Fujitsu (document A26361-D1031-Z120-10-7419, page 8 English) for my System board D1031 states:<BR> "Switch 3 enables and disables system Flash BIOS updating. Before an update of the system BIOS can be carried out, switch 1 must be set to OFF and write protection for the system BIOS must also be disabled in the BIOS setup (in the Security menu; the Flash Write field must be set to Enabled) ......".<BR>Can I get somewhere a new BIOS chip? Thanks for your help.
