Sounds like booooop-bopbop *pause* dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee (and so on). Somewhere there is a table of beep codes used by Award BIOS - maybe that can help. But something else might cause trouble: the 27F020 is a 12V Flash Chip (at least it used to be - only the 29.... parts are 5V programmable). This is lethal for modern boards, which assume they can store the PCI configuration in the Flash chip. So it might check the Flash type at boot time. But the beep code page should give you the answer anyway. A quick check by flashing the original chip (with the modified ROM image) should show if my stab in the dark is correct. But don't forget to keep a backup copy of the original content in some easily accessible place. =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Klaus Espenlaub <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
