    Hello aopen users!

    I have a Aopen Ak77-8xn board. I used to run bios r1.13 and
    updated to the recently released r1.15.

    After rebboting the windows 2000 boot process starts and
    gives me a "inaccessible boot device" error and refuses
    to go further. Here comes the panic!

    I flash the bios back to the r1.13

    After hours of trying this and that i finaly went to
    the emergency console on my Windows 2000 Pro install CD.

    And running chkdsk c: /p /r fixes this issue.
    My system funktions as normal again with the
    old bios r1.13

    Is there a serious bug with release 1.15?
    Have any other had this problem?

    I have the some board and if i upgrade to version BIOS upper than 1.06, a
    lot of files corrupt in WinXP.

    I test all BIOS and i canĀ“t upgrade.

    I have a ATA133 Maxtor HardDrive 6L080J4. Someone have this model in
    AK77-8xn ?

    My hardrive is a IBM Deskstar 180GXP 120GB with 2MB cache.

    It seems like some newer bioses from Aopen are dangerous to
    use. NOT GOOD! Aopen MUST fix this!

    I have used several of these board in PC's I build for my customers and
    haven't run across that problem. The latest BIOS I have used though is 1.14.
    From what I see on their site, the only advantage to the 1.15 BIOS is the
    support of a 133 FSB Duron processor. the only thing I have run across with
    Win XP and BIOS updates is that if the memory timing is changed to a faster
    setting after flashing, XP gets real quirky. You might want to make sure
    that the memory timings in the BIOS are the same as before you flashed. I
    don't really know why XP does this, but it happened to me on a couple
    boards. One of them was an AOpen AK77-333 and the other one was a Biostar
    board, so I don't really think it is an AOpen problem as much as it is an XP
