    Abit UK Technical Support for QuadGT is Brilliant

    When I saw the link to BIOS 11 for the QuadGT on the Abit website this morning, I tried to download it.

    Unfortunately the link shown was for a non-existent URL.

    I then e-mailed the Abit UK Technical Support team and advised them of the problem.

    26 minutes later Mickey Lin sent me a copy of the BIOS file!

    How about that for service?

    BIOS 11 now operational.

    The UK support seems to be putting the USA to shame

    Does the UK support team have the ability to edit the Abit-UK page? - If so, you should really put the BIOS's on there, given the situation.

    I wish mate, but first of all what fans would need in the UK is our OWN forums/ bios/ driver updates on our OWN server.

    Sean what is the feasibility on this please?

    The website is run by head office. Even if we could have access to maintian the site we just don't have the time. Abit UK is a very small office

    Thing is im sure there are many abit fans out there whom will be happy to help. If abit can provide the server I am sure there are many whom can administer it for you for free as it is in their interests, helps to get updates and advice faster etc etc. I will help out in any dedicated UK forums if someone could adminster the webpages, ofcourse permission from HO needs to be obtained, but if there are others whom would help, we could get this project ofthe ground.

    Just a suggestion

    Cheers Sean

    I too would be happy to help out ie Moderator, web design maintenance unfortunately is not my thing .
    This little corner for UK Abit is fine but a dedicated forum would I think attract more Abit users.

    Why would you want your own forum just for the UK?
    We actually had a separate UK forum setup on abit-USA's forums but the overwhelming feeling was that people didn't want to divide the community & that problems/fixes were relevant to everybody no matter where they were so it made sense to keep it all together.

    We also have a facility to host BIOS (& betas as soon as we can get our hands on them).

    Sorry if I've created a bit of a storm.

    All I wanted to do was praise the UK Tech. Support team.

    The Abit USA forum has a thread here (http://forum.abit-usa.com/showthread.php?t=122917) in which RichH suggests that the new BIOS is actually B08 with a POST screen message removal and build number increment.

    Apologies to anyone that I may have offended by my good intentions.

    As far as aI am aware no one is offended, people here are good lads and whislt I cant speak for everyone, we tend to be a dedicated lot here ,and we are all willing to try to help abit as much as possible. Each of us do what we can and contribute in our own way, after all isnt that goal still the same, to help people with abit boards?

    regards

    I don't think that you've offended anyone & yes, abit UK seems to have better support than abit USA (Saitek are the same btw).

    Thanks for your reassuring replies guys.

    By the way, I found this post (http://forum.abit-usa.com/showpost.p...&postcount=190) in another thread on the USA forum site and I checked the file out.

    The MD5# number matches the one that I received from Abit UK Tech. Support, so it is there if you need it.
