bios version vs revision

Discussion in 'AOpen' started by Philippe Léveillé, Jun 7, 2005.

  1. Hello,

    I have a problem with an installation of Windows XP on a Aopen motherboard,
    model AX6BC,
    The current bios settings are the following:
    R2.36
    Version: 202L4804
    05/17/1999-i440BX-00000006C-00

    My XP CD did boot up when I tried it on another computer.
    I come up with this error:
    "Cannot boot from CDROM: Code 5"

    I thought that flashing the bios was a good idea...
    I know this is tricky business so I just wanted to ask about THIS before:

    Do I need to download the .bin file from AOpen web site bearing the SAME
    revision number or I can download the most recent one (which in this case is
    R2.59)
    The whole page on their web site is not very clear about that...

    Thank you

  2. Problem solved...

    I finally installed the most recent version of the BIOS and it worked.
    Maybe AOpen web site should be a little more explicit about what version...
    or revision to download
