Question Abit AV8 3rd Eye needs 1.5 bios to run 90nm Winchester

Hi,

I am getting a Abit AV8 3rd Eye motherboard and a 90nm Winchester core CPU (AMD 3500+) but I have been told that i'll need to have the bios flashed to version 1.5 to allow the CPU to boot... and most have version 1.1 after being shipped.
How would I do this if I couldn't boot it? and how would you flash a bios?

Microdirect where I am buying it from, will not do it for me

Help will be greatly appreciated
*KaGe*

Hi, thanks for that ardy89

I know where to get that from, so if thats it, then all sorted Thought I'd have to buy a new chip or something like that!

It should automatically read from the floppy disc i'd guess?

Thanks for the help
