Since I just found myself struggling (again
) for the correct commandline options for awdflash, here is what I used:
awdflash /pn /sy backup1.bin
Saves your current bios without writing. Program No, Save Yes.
awdflash newbios.bin /py /sn /cc
Writes your new modified bios and then clears the cmos so that defaults you may have changed are loaded. You can add /r (reset) or /e (return to dos) to that otherwise it just hangs and you panic!
The bios in my box is:
BIOS DATE : 12/21/2005
CHIPSET ID : Alviso
BIOS ID : 6A79GAKAC-00
BIOS TYPE : Phoenix Technologies, Ltd.
OEM INFO : **** BIOS Ver.ETAC0017 (2005/12/21> ****
