    That would be Abit Flashmenu, currently at version 1.32 and available at Abit FlashMenu

    Just out of interest, what does flashing the bios give you? (in slightly more specific terms than "a more up to date BIOS") Is there any point if you're having no diificulties with the current one?

    Don't need 2 do you? I got AWARD Flash and the new BIOS onto a floppy with the boot stuff on it, I think...

    I'd never done it before, but it was nice and easy.

    BIOS updates are like driver updates; fix's a few issues, may add a new feature, change an exsisting one, change compatability, increase stability, etc, etc.

    Its your choice really. Some people don't change if there are no problems, so like to keep things up to date, problems or not.

    Just as an example, my motherboard (Gigabyte 7NNXP) came with the F10 BIOS. Now, one of the reasons I bought it was the extra two PATA sockets on the board. Sadly, I found out that you could only run them in RAID, unlike previous similarly-coloured Gigabyte boards (GA-7VAXP[A], if I recall correctly). Along comes BIOS version F13 (I think it was), and hey, presto, the ability to use the two PATA sockets as additional non-RAID ATA sockets. So, in all, this motherboard can take a total of 10 non-RAIDED drives, excluding anything on floppy. Fairly impressive, no? Not that my dinky 300W PSU will ever allow me to do that.

    the recent 2.1 abit bios for the nf7 alleges to have nividia system utility support... i just tried the new bios and a reinstalled system utility and it still jams.
    the flash menu still cant download a new bios, but if you download manually it can still update as easily as the award utility does.
