    In a new computer build based on a P4C800-E mobo, I have attempted to update
    the BIOS from whatever was resident in the mobo to the newest ver. 1016 and
    used the recommended newer ver. 2.07 Afudos installer to no avail (with
    afudos.exe and P4CED16.ROM files both on a DOS start-up disk for
    WInXP)--booted to DOS and tried a variety of small changes to the syntax and
    it will not take the update--cannot find file or does not like the syntax.
    For this quasi noob, I would hope that somebody would let me know what
    syntax they successfully used to update the BIOS to 1016. The syntax that I
    thought was supposed to be used as per directions on page 4-2 of the manual

    a:\>afudos /i<P4CED16.ROM>

    Suggestions and solutions welcome.

    Pretty close! The correct syntax is: A:\>afudos /ip4ced16.rom
    Good luck.

    Just type afudos with no argument and it will give you the correct syntax.

    Thanks Jon--will give that a try (out of frustration, I used the Asus EZ
    Flash method and found that the RAID setup and Boot sequence were changed in
    the BIOS setup...does a new flash of an Asus mobo change what is already set
    up in the BIOS--it did not in other mobos in computers I have worked on)?

    Jon--many thanks--it worked!!!! Whereas using the Asus EZ Bios Flash method
    that loses some or many of the settings in the BIOS setup (have a feeling I
    about lost my RAID 0), using the Afudos method, the BIOS settings are not
    changed. Now if I could only find where the BIOS version is stated so I can
    just check to see that the BIOS has been upgraded.
