    Would appreciate help in updating the BIOS for the SY-P4I865PE Plus Dragon 2
    v 1.0 motherboard.

    SOYO shows the latest AMI BIOS update 2aa5 dtd. 12/29/04. The executable
    file is shown as 4ipe2aa5.exe

    In their instructions for flashing the BIOS
    (http://www.soyogroup.com/kb/kbdesc.php?id=308&mode=1)
    they indicate that on the bootable floppy that will be used to flash the
    BIOS, the name of the EXE file is to be followed by the ROM.
    I do not know how to obtain this "ROM" (file?). Is it something generated by
    the BIOS update file?

    I raised this question with SOYO tech support via email two weeks ago, but
    haven't received any reply. Would appreciate any help you can give me.

    4ipe2aa5.exe is a self extracting Zip archive file containing both the
    BIOS ROM and flash program files.
