    WHY? If you update the BIOS first, then the next boot You are booting with the same settings, all be it just into CMOS setup.
    I will give You it's a safer road to travel, never traveled it much myself though. If it were a "MUST" I wouldn't be posting this, not
    on this machine anyway.

    "Karen" as he is calling himself these days does not own an 8KNXP rev 1 or
    rev 2. He (it is actually a he) claims to have had GB update a bios for
    8INXP (if I recall correctly) to include the ITE update. He (his real name
    is Roger) seems to think that the bios for these boards is completely
    interchangeable and that by asking for 1 bios to be corrected that he is the
    New Saviour and authoritative champion!

    So, in short Roger (alias Woger, Woger MKII and about 200 others) is flame

    the extra power module.

  9. LOL....if you have that mobo then you would KNOW that F11 referes to
    revision 1.0 of the GA-8KNXP.

    FH, FI, FJ referes to the 2.0 and 2.1 revisions of the board.

    I made this mistake once before.... You may have seen it where I provided
    details on a fix for "Karen" for his rev 1 8KNXP which turned out not to be
    not to be a rev 2 or an 8KNXP....

    I suggest Karen be left to his imagination and not assume that there is any
    new bios coming, but wait or prod GB for a new one.

    No Dumbo it a GA-8I875 Ultra , its the same board as a GA-8KNXP Rev 2.0 and
    comes with the same Manual and has the same Bios Updates, the only diffrence
    is the DPS2, it does not have it..

    Seems that most here have never heared on this board..

    F off Tim you do not know F thing, I do know what MoBo I have, seems that
    you just don't have a clue

    Have a look at a GA-8KNXP Manual, you will se that is has a GA-8I875 Ultra
    Listed, this mobo can out much later, as it came out as a Rev 2.0 Board and
    sound option, plus it has Rev 2.0 stamped on the board.

    So now your credibility here is now a FAT ZERO..

    Plus I do have this New Bios, lets me boot from any 4 Hard Drives that are
    connected to the ITE Controller.

    Never mind Tim you might grow up one day, but from your stupid comments here
    its going to take for ever.
    Karen Parker, Sep 21, 2004
  14. Nah, because it's crap.

    Richard Dower, Sep 21, 2004
  15. you got a beta BIOS that works for you, GREAT!
    Now tell when Gigabyte are gonna update the BIOS once again for the
    GA-8KNXP revision 2.1?????

    Sorry? Please feel free to expand further... :)

    Like how would you recover from a failed BIOS flash without using the
    incredibly useful Gigabyte backup BIOS?

    Incidentally we do know how to flash a BIOS (after all we have read and
    carried out your reccommendation), but just occasionally it fails - e.g.
    because the mains electricity turns off or glitches - so your recommendation
    repeated several times about how to do a BIOS flash still is of no help.

    How do I roll back the bios when the system is unbootable??
    Lawless, Sep 22, 2004
  19. Only in your mind, sweetheart.
    Richard Dower, Sep 22, 2004
  20. F8 from the bios screen. It allows you to boot from the backup bios and copy the backup bios to the man bios if you want to.
