Best cbrom.exe version 2 because this should work on 4.51 and 6.0 Bioses. The MES-N have 59k free space on EEPROM so this is not a problem. I have to use Asus aflash because awdflash bo not work wirh the MES-N (5V EEPROM) but I hope this is not the reason why it not works. > > Is there anything special I need to do when preparing the > Intel etherboot code? This seem to be the truth. On the new cbrom all options like /pci /other work but the piglet always wants a boot floppy and do not recognize the ROM Code. I dont't have success at the moment with Etherboot nor with Netboot. Can't find the ROM code after boot with DOS debug. > > > Once I get this working, what is the best way to build lots > of these?
