Hello, I have kind of a big problem. The stupid person I am, I replaced
my normal gateway bios with the plain vanilla intel bios from the intel
site. The best description I can give is a from another forum, where a
bunch of other users have the same problem as me, and this is the same
exact hardware:

> The Intel Motherboard in my Gateway 3250S came with this BIOS:
> EV91510A.15A.0123
> I made the mistake of "upgrading" to the latest plain-vanilla Intel BIOS:
> EV91510A.86A.0470
> As a result I've lost use of the onboard Firewire in OSX.
> Gateway ftp site does have a new BIOS for this motherboard:
> AG91510J.15A.0816
> I have tried installing the new BIOS from within WinXP, and using

Question is, how do I get the normal gateway bios:
back on the system? I tried uniflash, but appearently, they(gateway)
don't give me a .bin to use. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME. My problem is
actually for a critical task. With this plain vanilla bios from intel,
VGA can't be autodetected by the bios(in linux), FANS are all messed up
and don't work correctly and hibernation doesn't work correctly. PLEASE
PLEASE! I will also refer the other people having this same problem to
this forum. THANKS A LOT!!
