    I just purchased my A8V mb from NewEgg for use w/an AMD X2.

    1. What is the likeliehood it shipped w/an X2 compatible bios?

    2. If not does this workaround work for updating it?

    "Rename the new bios A8v.rom(it should be something like a8v1013.ami),

    and copy the renamed new bios (A8v.rom) to a floppy. Then start the

    computer with the floppy disk in the drive while pressing alt F2

    repeatedly. This will start a bios erase/rewrite program, which upgrades

    the bios."

    I got mine a month ago and it had the most recent BIOS installed for me to
    plug in my 4400
