Angry BIOS Lock String


Does anyone own a Chaintech Zenith 9CJS Motherboard?

If so have you been able to flash the BIOS without getting the following message:

'The program file's BIOS-Lock String does not match your system.'

I have downloaded the appropriate updates along with the Award Flash utility from their website but am having no joy in getting it ti flash.

I need to install some of the updates as well so that Windows XP with SP2 will work.

Can anyone help?

Yeah, it's all the correct downloads via their website.

Computer still works fine and can install older versions of operating systems.

But need to install 2 of the BIOS updates to resolve issues with regard to SP2.

Have looked on the net and it seems other people have come across the same problem but can offer no solution.

Looking on the Chaintech website this doesn't really offer any clues either.

Pain in the ass to tell you the truth
